Overview
  • 1Description

This B&H kit pairs the Marshall Electronics LCD-50-HDMI 5" On-Camera Monitor with Hood with a trio of Switronix products – a PowerBase 70 Battery Pack for Canon EOS 5D Mk II & 7D DSLRs, a PB70C PowerBase Charger, and a Powertap Cable for Marshall LCD50 – to form a power and field monitoring solution for the Canon 5D and 7D video DSLR cameras.

The 5" LCD monitor features a resolution of 800x480. With its small form factor, it's capable of sitting atop your Canon 5D or 7D, mounting via the provided shoe mount adapter. Also provided is a monitor hood. The HDMI input corresponds to the Canon's video out. The monitor's Peaking and False Color filters enable a videographer to set proper focus and exposure (respectively) with much greater precision than the output of the camera's small viewfinder allows.

Powering the camera is the PowerBase 70 Battery Pack, designed specifically to work with the 5D/7D. The 70Wh, 14.8V Lithium-ion battery pack provides up to six times the runtime of the Canon batteries included when you buy the camera. The battery pack also supplies power for up to two separate accessories – in this case, one is the Marshall 5" LCD monitor.

Both of the PowerBase 70's accessory power outputs are Powertap style, so the monitor requires a conversion. That, of course, is where the included Powertap cable comes into play. Designed for the Marshall LCD50, it translates the battery's connector to match the monitor's input connector, and it takes the 14.8V DC power output of the battery and regulates it to 8V DC, 2A to meet the monitor's requirement of 5-12V DC.

The Switronix PB70C PowerBase Charger is a compact 9-240V AC battery charger for the PowerBase 70 battery. Using a Powertap connector, the PB70C delivers a full charge in 4-5 hours.

  • Marshall Electronics 5" On-Camera Monitor

    The Marshall 5" On-Camera Monitor is a high performance color monitor that mounts to the top of a camcorder or video DSLR using the provided shoe mount adapter. The monitor delivers superior brightness and sharpness, supports a wide range of formats and markers, and offers versatile viewing angles. Major monitor controls such as brightness, contrast, and color are easily accessed from the monitor's front panel. There are also four preset keys so that the videographer can, at the touch of a button, instantly access often used functions.

    To help the videographer maintain optimum image quality through various lighting and scene scenarios, this monitor offers a number of test tools including False Color Filter and Peaking Filter functions.

    False Color Filter is used to maintain a natural look for people and objects when there's a change in a camera's brightness and luminance levels. Peaking Filter employs a color to black and white changeover method to help ascertain what areas of the image are lacking in focus or sharpness. With these tools at hand the videographer can shoot with greater confidence, knowing that what is shown on the screen is an accurate representation of what is being recorded or broadcasted.

    This monitor operates off of the included power adapter or via battery power (4 AA) for field operation. With this level of performance and versatility, this monitor offers the perfect alternative to the often inadequate viewfinder and flip-out screens found on many of today's cameras.

    False Colors
    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.

    To best utilize this feature, you must understand the color chart and have a basic understanding of camera exposure. Normally, when shooting subjects like people, it is common practice to set exposure of faces to the equivalent of approximately 56 IRE. The False Color Filter will show this area as the color PINK on the monitor. Therefore, as you increase exposure (open the IRIS), your subject will change color as indicated on the chart: PINK, then GREY, then a few shades of YELLOW. Overexposed subjects (above 101 IRE) on the monitor will be shown as RED.

    In addition, underexposed subjects will show as DEEP-BLUE to DARK-BLUE, with clipped-blacks indicated with a FUCHSIA-like color. Lastly, the color GREEN is used to indicate elements of the image that are approximately 45 IRE. This represents a "neutral" or "mid-level" exposure commonly used for objects (not people).
    Peaking Filter
    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 control (on the camera lens), different parts of the image will have RED colored edges. This indicates that this portion of the image is sharp or in focus. Final focus is achieved by racking the camera lens focus control back and forth until the desired portion of the image has RED colored edges.

    Please note that this feature is most effective when the subject is properly exposed and contains enough contrast to be processed.
