question

does this monitor have a fan in the back wont onboard mics pic it up has anyone ever used this never even heard of this brand but I like the right side 1/4 20 mount?
Asked by: Steve
Bon, a South Korean video manufacturer since 1986, makes the Bon FM-055F with a fan that they suggest you turn on when the ambient temperature is high. Common sense would say that if the fan is on and the monitor is on the camera and the mic is there as well, the likelyhood of the mic picking up the fan is high. In such a situation, either turn off the fan, or separate the monitor from the mic.
