PORTKEYS BM5 Reviews
Very nice unit
Over all the monitor does what its supposed to and I think its great. The only tiny negative is that the cords are hidden under the case cushion a tab sticking out or note to say that they there, would be cool.
Zero customer service
While the monitor works with my RED KOMODO, I have had several issues with the monitor and have found NON-EXISTENT customer service. My monitor arrived with one of the L antenna pins broken and I can't get PORTKEYS to respond in any fashion. Since the monitor is useless without the antenna, I think you really have to consider whether buying this is worth it
Great monitor. Menu is meh.
Bright and versatile monitor. Well built. Great price. Menu system UI could use some work.
Bought this to use on top of a gimbal as an operators monitor. I primarily wanted something that was bright (daylight viewable) and accurate, I saw the Komodo control as a cool bonus. On brightness, this monitor really lacks. This is not an alternative to the SmallHD 503. It may technically hit the 2200 nits with the brightness cranked to max, but at that point the contrast and color of your image is completely washed out, making it useless to even determine exposure. At base level brightness and indoors, the colors are pretty good and it's a decent monitor to operate with. The menus are clunky. Poor design if you're used to more common production monitors. There's often input lag that slows you down and gets annoying really quick. Finally, yes the BM5 can control my Komodo, but I typically still use the top screen on the cam because I don't like navigating the menus and it can be unresponsive, especially when you want to make repeated incremental changes to something like ISO or WB.
I needed another monitor for a new Komodo and this was an easy choice as I already have one for my first one. Once you wrap your head around the swipe gestures it is a very easy monitor to use. The image can be trusted and it is more than bright enough for outdoor use. It does burn through batteries so be sure to get a spare.
If purchasing for a Z-Cam, you're better off using the iPhone app. The menus aren't very intuitive and the responsiveness is not great. I found myself accidentally recording multiple times.
Honestly i Waste My Money
honestly i waste my money i try to setup with my red Komodo but it totally wast of time to setup i dont like
Claims wide functionality, but does not deliver.
I purchased the Portrays BM5iii-WR for its claim to control sony cameras. I already have a way to control my fx9's, but needed a way to control smaller A7 camera bodies. I tried every possible thing to make this monitor work with the A7-iv and the A7r-iv. Neither completely worked, there was always some feature that would not work such as stop start, or the video feed would cut out after connecting the usb cable. Also, the monitor comes with a bunch of cables, but not the one you need to connect A7 cameras, but B&H carries it. It also doesn't include an AC power supply. I also got the colors to match well enough for different cameras, but after powering down the monitor, the adjustments I made in the color settings would sometimes turn off on their own. The monitor has some great potential. It seems like portrays tried to include a lot of functions, but they don't actually work. The monitor also has the ability to be used in high brightness, but the contrast and colors get washed out, so you would have to make custom adjustments for when you want to have the brightness high. This was also where the custom settings would reset and that would be a time killer on set. Hopefully these issues can be fixed with firmware updates. The firmware I tested this with was: BM5-V3WR.17.44.C19.B26 I would test this monitor in store if you want to use it for camera control or have any kind of decent color/exposure. If those issues are fixed, it could be a decent little monitor. it is small and fairly light. I don't know if it would last because I returned it. One great thing about B&H is that they don't play games if something doesn't work, you can return it.
