Delvcam DELV-WFORM-7 Reviews

Overall a very useful product

By AtlantaJim

I use this as a low-cost monitor for home and church video production. The picture is good, but if the waveform monitor and vectorscope can be made full-screen, I haven't found the command yet. This is my only criticism at this time - small waveform and vector displays. But yes, for the money it is a very good buy. I have also found the composite input useful for status monitoring on some older gear that only outputs composite.

Great Monitor

The monitor is solid and the price is right! The menus and setting sharpness, color, are not that difficult to navigate. I haven't seen anyone have problems setting it yet. I just can't wait until I have a moment to wire up, integrate it's tally.

I love it

I am an independent producer, shooter, editor, scriptwriter, etc. I shoot a great many interviews and have, as of late, been reducing the size and weight of the gear I have to lug around. For the last year, I have been lugging around a TV set I [email protected] It was cheap and I really only needed it for positioning of the interviewee. I had to bring power blocks and stingers to run the TV set. Now, with this hot little monitor, I not only get great positioning, outstanding quality of image, and other features (some of which I don't use), it also runs forever on batteries. Before I purchased it, I read some of the reviews. I must say that I could find none of the problems other people say they had. I think most of those other reviewers preferred to open the package, turn everything on, and, then, when it wasn't exactly what they expected, tried to read the instructions. I read them first and the unit is great. I have compared it with other units that cost four times as much and I can't tell the difference.

Verdict is still out

I used this monitor with a canon 70D. The image was clear and appeared very close in color detail, resolution and framing to the small on-board viewer on the camera. I used it with a canon battery pack and its supplied power supply. I also used the monitor with a video camera. There as a field monitor, it worked flawlessly except as noted below. It took some very careful reading of the small manual that accompanied the monitor before I was able to gain access to the features needed. Once the needed features were assigned to the functions and front panel knobs I was able to use the monitor as intended. However, here are some things this monitor did not consistently do: monitor audio at the monitor. It never monitored the waveform in the component position. The HDMI input was slow to access and often would not work at all. That particular problem was verified as being a monitor problem by using the same HDMI cable, I actually used 3 different lengths, and connecting to another large screen monitor. On the large screen monitor, I could repeatedly connect and disconnect the HDMI input and the image would come back each time it was reconnected. On the Delvcam 7 monitor, this was not the case. I am waiting for a replacement to see if this is a problem with that particular line or simply a defective monitor. BTW, B&H was very responsive in providing support and making it easy to return the product.

I'm sure there are worse monitors

Overall, I wasn't satisfied with this purchase. I tried using it for one evening while shooting a music video on a Canon 6D. The pros did not outweigh the cons. If you want my suggestion, save up more money and purchase a higher quality monitor. Pros 1. It ships with a foam padded carrying case. 2. It includes all cables and mounts ready for a DSLR. Cons 1. The menu is horrible and confusing. Many of the options are hidden and can only be assigned to a knob and then adjusted... meaning if you constantly want to tweak more than a few options (brightness, sharpness...etc), you'll be required to navigate the awful menu and assign it to a knob every single time you want to tweak it. 2. Out of the box, the factory settings are awful. The sharpness is turned up way too high. For a while I thought the screen was just awful until I finally found the option for the sharpness. 3. The screen quality is not what I expected of an IPS panel. The color and contrast would change even with the slightest tilt of the screen. 4. The screen was much heavier than I expect and would completely overpower the weight of the DSLR. 5. The included mount is always wobbly, no matter how much you try to tighten the knobs. 6. The DSLR battery adapters are insanely difficult to work with. It's almost like whoever engineered them said Instead of making these fit perfectly, why don't we make them like 3% too big so they're almost impossible to attach batteries to?

Best Monitor for the Money

This monitor is feature packed for the price. We are using it for an on set production monitor which works very well. It has everything you would want including audio monitoring at the monitor. Focus peaking is very nice and the wave form is handy too. We use the NP-F970 batteries and we yet have to change batteries during a shoot. I was also very pleasantly surprised when the monitor arrived in a very nice metal case. The only negative is the menu navigation is a bit clunky but is alright once you get used to it. Bottom line... You'll have to pay more than twice the money for a monitor with the same features and quality. Highly recommended for low budget and student film programs.

Excellent features for the price. I never know how much difference a field monitor would make in our production quality. This unit has false color which aids focussing; wave form and histogram views to aid the lighting set-up up front so less effort is needed in post. Unit comes with a sun shield for outdoor use and has a variety of mounting options. It can be mounted on top of a DSLR with the hot shoe mount or on a stand or tripod. Multiple inputs formats can be used although I only use the HDMI input. I use a separate HDMI selector switch to enable multiple cameras to use the same monitor which facilitates camera matching.

Does this monitor accept an SDI-HD signal from the BNC input?
Asked by: Michael
No, the BNC connectors cannot take an HD-SDI signal. This monitor can only accept Component or Composite by BNC. HDMI is the way to get digital HD into this monitor.

Can the waveform set to be displayed in full screen?
Asked by: Nahuel
Sorry. Since I received your question I've tried to make it full screen but I can't. The buttons just determine what will be displayed in the lower right hand corner. So, unless someone else has been able to do it I would say that it can't be made full screen.

How large is the waveform display on the monitor? Since it seems to be a fixed size, that is important to assessing if it's any use.
Asked by: James D.
Mine doesn't have the larger size waveform display that Scott B's has. May be a slightly different model, or may be an upgrade since I purchased mine. Small display is, well, pretty small. Wish it was larger.
