Focusing with Canon C100 + LCD + Zacuto + Ninja2
on Sep 3, 2014 at 10:11:01 pm

I've got the Canon C100 with a Zacuto Z finder recording to a ninja 2.

I thought between the zacuto and the ninja 2 I would have a comfort level in seeing critical focus.

I'm not. Am I the problem, or do I still need a small HD monitor to add to the mix?

Outdoors is a struggle with the ninja because I haven't found a hood for it yet, but even with one I'm feeling it would not help.

Add on top of this the lead actor in the series has deep deep eye sockets and a prominent nose.

Any thoughts? I hate to add another monitor with extra weight, balance etc.

I have a C100, and use a loupe on the rear screen, or an eyecup on the VF, that is the only way to punch in and show a magnified view for focusing. I have a Ninja Blade as well, great monitor and recorder, but you loose the ability to magnify the image, there is a contrast focusing setting using false color on the Blade that is helpful, I also bought a "Grid" 5" loupe for the Blade, have not had time to install it yet.
