I am currently looking for a external monitor solution for my bmcc.
It seems like right now there are only 2 options available. Either a nauticam hausing for the smallhd dp4 or an external monitor from dive and see.
Does anyone have experience with both monitors, or can recommend other monitoring solutions?
Since it's mainly to be able to do critical focus I am right now favoring the dnc-7 because of the bigger screen size, but I haven't found much information on actual screen used and screen resolution.
From my experience with the 1.8 firmware hence it brings GREAN color peaking for focus & the one touch auto focus you don't need an other monitor to achieve good focus. Actually I I find the BMCC is better than the Ninja2 dull screen.
All you need to do is:
Set Monitor to video (this has nothing to do with Recording format) only for monitor,
Get a good shade or make your own for the BMCC monitor,
Set peaking by pressing focus button twice - pressing once is auto focus function
Set highlight if required
BMD already released version 1.9 that has a histogram for the BMPC 4k and the BMCC should follow soon.
Unless one wants to record proxies at the same time, having an external monitor is not helpful for the BMCC setup. I don't know if you can record at the same time when you press the rec button on either BMCC/Ninja. BMD cameras don't send any triggers to recoding devices via hdmi or bnc . May be a loop through the LANC - may be - could help. Must be tested first.
