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.
