Hi Fred, we use one of the nicest 7" panels we can possibly find for the LM-0750W, but that is NOT a color critical unit. The native color gamut of that monitor is much smaller than the 2450W and is a bit smaller than REC 709 color space. Specifically, the native spectral distribution of that 7" panel limits the amount of red the monitor can produce, the red that comes out is indeed a little towards orange, that is where it falls most short of reaching the specified REC 709 primary.

The 7" monitor is good for establishing critical focus, framing shots, etc., but for any color critical decisions on the 7" you need to rely on the scopes and measurement features built into the monitor. This is IMHO the case with any sub $4,000 7" monitor on the market and at $2,000 it is still 8 bit and feature packed, which a lot of other $2,000 monitors are not. But I will be the first to admit that it will not perfectly match a 2450W.

If the 7" monitor is not living up to your expectations because of the smaller native color gamut please give me a call to discuss your options. Again, I think for under $4,000 you won't find a 'more color critical' 7" LCD monitor, but if you for any reason were under the impression this would be a color critical monitor like the 2450W please contact us, because we certainly never wanted to give you or any other customers that impression.
