Using a non-HD monitor for focus assist?
on Nov 2, 2013 at 1:09:39 pm

I am new to shooting video on a DSLR, using a Canon t4i. I am thinking of picking up a non-HD monitor (the Calumet Pro Series 7" monitor). I know that this is a cheap monitor, and it only sports an 800x480 resolution. Blinq is selling this monitor for only $219 right now, and I was thinking of getting it to try and improve my ability focusing. It has focus peaking.
Is this monitor a waste of my time because of the low resolution? I was hoping to learn how to use this tool and if I like using a monitor and improve my skills then upgrading to a better one.
Thanks...

An HD monitor is always best but ANY type of monitor is better than trusting you eyes on the LCD. I used an old television once for a project I was shooting at home.
