I'm new to all this. I love doing it but need some help.
I bought a 7inch monitor to help while filming. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C16YCNM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).
I was also gifted a Samsung 17 inch monitor that I'm using as a second monitor for a second camera.
I'm guessing there's a HUGE importance with calibrating monitors because I'm noticing just how much I change my camera settings to get a "good picture". Then I'll switch to the other monitor and it'll be drastically different.
1. Anyone with a T3i, which Preset do you shoot video in? (Standard, Neutral, Faithful, etc.)
2. Are there any standards for calibrating on field monitors so one can get a true look at what's being captured?
Thanks for any thoughts.

I don't use a T3i, I shoot with a 5D, but I would treat the two the same. If I use MagicLantern (shoots 14 bit RAW), I use the external monitor for framing and confidence, because it is RAW I color correct in post.
If i shoot h.264, I shoot neutral or use the Technicolor Cinestyle preset for a flat look I can create an S-curve in color correction during post.
