Marshall's V-LCD651STX-HDMI-PM 6.5" Lightweight On-Camera Field Monitor excels at producing perfectly exposed images under bright sunlight and other high-ambient lighting. But its advanced Super Transflective technology is only part of the story. This 2.4MP display uses 10-bit processing and 4x oversampling to provide clear and colorful images that make it the ideal on-camera imaging aid, whether replacing a DSLR viewfinder or a camcorder's small, built-in LCD.
Flexibility is also key, starting with the monitor's inputs, which include composite, component, and HDMI--giving you the choice of SD/HD and analog/digital. The selection of power options is even more impressive, from plugging in the included external power supply to utilizing the same batteries used in your camcorder. Other powerful features, such as RGB gain and bias control, false color, peaking, and numerous user-adjustable markers and settings, make the V-LCD651STX-HDMI-PM truly indispensable to any location production.
This item includes the Panasonic adapter plate, for use with your already existing Panasonic batteries.
Designed specifically for outdoor applications with high ambient light, Marshall's outdoor super-transmissive LCDs provide improved visibility by producing high-contrast images and a wider viewing angle, even under diverse and challenging lighting environments. This innovative technology dramatically boosts the efficiency of the LCD backlight's light utilization, while maintaining extended temperature ratings and low power consumption for outdoor operation.
The False Color filter is used to aid in the setting of camera exposure. As the camera iris is adjusted, elements of the image will change color based on the luminance or brightness values. This enables proper exposure to be achieved without the use of costly, complicated external test equipment.
The Peaking Filter is used to aid the camera operator in obtaining the sharpest possible picture. When activated, all color will be removed from the display and a black-and-white image will remain. The internal processor will display RED color on the screen where sharp edges appear. When the camera operator adjusts (or "racks") the focus, different parts of the image will have RED colored edges. This indicates that this portion of the image is sharp or in focus.
These units offer the ability to adapt up to nine different battery configurations for providing mobile operation in the field. This option provides flexibility when using different cameras or configurations. Marshall's large selection of battery adapters can be interchanged (or "swapped out") by the end-user.
Scratch Resistant Screen
As almost all professionals know, the field can often be a rough place. The LCD is built from the ground up to weather the storm. By incorporating a scratch-resistant panel, users no longer have to worry about that occasional branch making contact with the monitor.
