Best SDI monitor for Blackmagic Cameras

PostSun Feb 10, 2019 12:37 pm

Hi guys, i need your help.
I have a Lilliput A7S HDMI monitor, but my ursa mini pro and its flat color format are not displayed in the same way on that screen. I use a hdmi-sdi Converter.
I want to know which are the best options without going over 500 € and if it is better to be Full Hd or Hd...

Thanks!

I think you need to enable a conversion LUT on the output, should solve your problem, $0.00.

Thanks for your answer Howard, do you mean to activate it in the options of the camera?

You can activate/deactivate the preview LUT for any of your outputs separately in the camera's monitor menu. If you are not familiar with the settings and their meanings I'd recommend to have a look through the excellent user manual you can download from BMD support website.

You might find other surprising little information bits about your camera in it ;)
