Field monitor 4k 30?

PostMon Sep 13, 2021 3:31 am

I'm shopping for a field monitor for a 6k pro. Most of them say that they work up to 4k 30. What happens if you put 4k 60 or 6k to them? Do they just not work? Or does the hdmi out only push 4k 30 max? In that 2nd scenario, will the monitor work at all with higher framerates or res in the cam?

Sadly, the 6K pro only outputs at a maximum of 1080p60, so there is no point in getting a 4K field monitor.

That is strange. Thanks for the reply though. For me, field monitor resolution doesn't matter, mostly need for framing, false colors and zebras. Might even save a buck getting a 1080 monitor :)
