How does the 4:3 aspect ratio marshalls (the 6.5″) handle widescreen signals coming in? Surely you’re not actually utilizing the full 1024×768 resolution?

@art chong, we use this monitor with our 5D and it doesn’t fully utilize the resolution. When you push record, the 5D goes into an odd aspect ratio and drops to 480p.
You can preview at 1:1 resolution, which is helpful for initial focus, but the 5D doesn’t output the hi-res once record is pushed.
The BlackMagic Designs, Mini Converter HDMI to SDI unit is no longer offered and has been discontinued. Do you suggest an equal or greater alternative for this?
Is a monitor accurate for focus pulling using Canon EF Zoom lenses on a 5D since the output is 480p only?
I am with one question that i tried to find answer all over the internet but couldn’t (
Some time ago on one of your backstage of multi-camera workflow i sow a interesting converter u used to display (in like a multiscreen) multiplay (4) SDI signals on one big display. It was a box of red color Blackmagic HDMI to HD-SDI convertor size.
I am wondering wat device did u used and probably you can give your opinion on it?
Thanks a lot!
Awesome stuff you’ve put together on your blog and I read it as often as I can. The DSLR workshop you had on Creativelive really got me going on this HD DSLR wave.
I’ve got a simple question regarding looking in a viewfinder with glasses on. Is it something that’s annoying or is it not an issue? I’m asking because I’m planning to get either an external monitor or viewfinder but I’m not sure which as I’m wearing glasses too.
Hope you’ve got the time to answer my question. All the best from Denmark :).
@Chip Burns, This means that the 5D Mark II does have 720p in standby live view mode?

Yes it does – ALMOST – 720p when you take the two letterbox stripes into account – but again not when you record
Hi Vincent . I have Redrock micro support system with Marshall 7 inc monitor,but i like your full system very much. Please can you send your full system list with HD transmitter all brands.And how can i buy those system?i will come to New york soon. You are amazing ..thank you for intruducing HD-DSLR..
I’m trying to build a rig of my own and I was wondering if I go HDMI in to the Marshall 7″ monitor can I take output from the video or component jacks?
Thanks for your help!
I am holding out for a tablet with an HDMI input. Talk about multiple uses… Everything I need to organize a shoot short of editing on the production end with a tablet and then pop in an HDMI to use as an external monitor. I surf around the web every three or four days looking for one.
I bought the V-LCD651STX-3G SDI as Vincent suggested but now in setting it up I find that my Marshall V-LCD651STX shuts off in record mode. It doesn’t just “down-res” it just shows a blue screen. Does anybody know any work around to this?
Does anyone know which mini HDMI to Female HDMI adapter cable Vincent used when he was showing the rigs?
I remember in last year’s class, he recommended getting a mini to regular HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable instead of just a mini HDMi to HDMI cable, because the cables kept breaking and falling out of the HDMI port on the Canon.
Problem is, all the adapters I’ve found so far are the short ones that are a little wide and tend to block the mic input on the camera. The adapter I saw him use this time seemed to be a short , maybe 10 inch cable with a mini HDMI male and a regular HDMI female connector
Can the Cube wireless transmitters work with the 5D, considering it doesn’t output a consistent HD signal over HDMI? We’re considering using it to broadcast the Student Government debates at Northwestern this coming year.
Typo under your HDMI to SDI section “This has become an essential piece of kit – HDMI simply isn’t the way to go when you get into more comples systems”
Find it in the complex words.
Please excuse this still photography question, but guessing confidently that you will never stop being a still photographer, which monitor would you recommend for still photography editing -that would be most affordable but still prograde as far as color correction aspect?
Vincent Laforet Reply:September 8th, 2011 at 12:20 am
Nothing great that’s affordable… Apple displays are very good but many hate the reflective glass… Eizos are the high end…
As everyone mentions–thanks for such a thorough run down of all the equipment. Got a question about the BlackMagic HDMI convertor to SDI. If I want to use that unit to convert a signal I can then run wirelessly to a remote monitor–say for use with an AC or Field Producer–what other equipment should I look into to make that happen?

You just need to power it w/ a P-Tap or other and it will work. Marshall Electronics has a similar box that just came out and is much better built.
Hi VIncent !
It’s Kerraine here once more…
How’ve you been ?
A sudden thought but…
Would you use the new iPad as a reference monitor with a cube ?
If you would, I’m thinking how would it be mounted to the rig…
I’ve sent ya’ an e-mail but must have bounced to your junk box.
Hope to hear from you soon !
Vincent Laforet Reply:March 27th, 2012 at 2:17 pm
It would be nice to use the new iPad indeed! Haven’t had a chance yet… but remember – it’s a compressed signal coming out so I wonder how much advantage there is and there will of course be a delay so it’s not meant for pulling focus. What e-mail did you send to?
I thought the new resolution shown by the new iPad would be great to use. ^^
Also… It’d be interesting to see where the iPad would be placed on a rig as it’s pretty big !
Would love to see you doing it considering that I’m just planning on saving to buy equipment from scratch.
I sent the e-mail twice to email@example.com
Hope it’s correct…
Hello Mr. Laforet
What kind of p-tap to dc input cable do you use on Marshall V-LCD56MD monitor. I have been looking around but no luck, even at filmtools in LA.
any advice will help.

Good eyes! I had mine custom made… by a friend (i.e. not a commercial place I can direct you to…) It’s well worth it – I power the monitor off of my P-Tap port on my Anton Bauer plate. I’m sure you can make one on your own or find someone who can do it for you.
@Vincent Laforet, Thank you very much for the tip. I will look into it.
Thanks for the gear uodate! Is there a way to use the iPad retina for monitoring off a 5D MKIII?
Vincent Laforet Reply:November 29th, 2013 at 10:37 pm
Not “live” you can use the Teradek Cubes to do this as well as the Teradek case in the gear section – works pretty nicely (but w/ a delay i.e. not for focus pulling or operating – but more for directors / script sup etc)
