    Anyone use an HDMI screen instead of LV with XF+IQ100?

    Perhaps Capture Pilot with iPhone works, but wanted to know which if any HDMI screens work best and how do you fix them on your tripod? Also what size seems about right? I am sure I have missed some questions, but you must get the idea, should I try one? TIA

    In post #18 of this thread Ken mentioned he uses SmallHD with side finder.
    Sounds like an option that might interest you.

    See, 5-inch, Full HD on-camera monitors with brilliant displays and a desirable form factor.

    Also available at Dante's store, B&H. SmallHD 5" 501 hdmi monitor works great paired with the Sidefinder. Although the larger real estate of the 7" monitor is great (we had both the 5" and 7" Small HD monitors at our last CI in Carmel), the 5" is plenty good enough, and when considering portability and the Sidefinder option, it was a no-brainer for me.

    If you need the power of C1 Pro, then tethering via USB3 is the best option. And if on location, the Surface Pro works great.

    I used my Surface Pro clamp endeavors to come up with what I think is the easiest, most compact, and relatively inexpensive option to attach my SmallHD monitor and Sidefinder to my tripod. I attach a AS quick release plate to the Sidefinder. A Manfrotto nanoclamp attaches to the tripod leg. I use gaffers tape on the leg for scuff protection and added grip. Giottos MH1304 ballhead (RRS BH25 would be stronger), and a AS compatible lever clamp on top. Manfrotto clamp just works on a RRS 3 series TVC tripod leg.

    Ken

    Sounds like you've got it dialed in for sure. I was looking at a new Ikan 7" 4K monitor which has focus peaking (besides the camera), many controls and thought if I wanted to magnify a portion of an image I would just use my Hoodman loupe which I always use in any event just in case monitor glare was a problem. This is a new item at B&H and not yet on their list of monitors as yet. Maybe a 7" is overkill, but I do suffer from bad eyesight. Any thoughts? TIA

    The Clamp is great but I would recommend a longer Noga arm and quick releases

    Take your pick very stable and fast to dissemble and store.

    The SmallHD has focus peaking as well. You can attach up to two batteries---same type used by the Canon 5D camera, which makes it easy to maintain with generic inexpensive replacements from Wasabi, available at Amazon---that other official Dante Store.

    All I would add, since this is dantes forum, is that if you're invested in the IQ3100 you shouldn't go cheap on a connected display. The smallHD devices are excellent.

    i tried the wireless option too and was very impressed. When (not if ... Ken/Don ) I eventually get an iq3 100 for myself (vs using someone else's), I'll be getting the smallHD 501 & viewfinder although I know that some of the time the iPad/iPhone will do just fine.

    Re: Anyone use an HDMI screen instead of LV with XF+IQ100?

    Apologies if this is a dumb question but why not simply mount a 501 on the camera hot or cold shoe and connect via HDMI ? I'm thinking XF or Rm3di and an IQ-3100. (There is an A-S cold shoe adapter for the Rm3di).

    Does the Sidefinder simply give better viewing in bright light and a variety of other mounting options ?

    Smallhd's videos tend to assume a video use case and dealers here don't seem to have demo stock.

    Thanks.

    You certainly could attach the 501 SmallHD to the hotshoe----but being *ahem* height challenged, this would place the monitor slightly higher than optimal for me, though it could be angled downward. Matter of preference really. But the real advantage is being able to place and use the Sidefinder in a more accessible position. The Sidefinder basically allows avoiding glare which is the achilles heel to any device monitor in bright conditions.

    There are many different options to attaching the SmallHD, many of which are seen/listed on the SmallHD website and videos. The best one is simply what works best with your rig!

    Ken, it's ok, we all have these challenges ... I'm not too proud to go for some vertical enhancement at times. My solution is the Pelican 1510
