Calibrating Field Monitors with T3i
on May 23, 2015 at 4:21:09 pm

I'm new to all this. I love doing it but need some help.

I bought a 7inch monitor to help while filming. (

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.
