What is a DSLR Monitor?
A DSLR monitor is a digital single-lens reflex monitor. This type of monitor is sold by various electronics stores and is the newest type of computer monitor. It is usually small and portable, meaning it is the perfect monitor to use in a vehicle. DSLR monitors can be installed on the back of a car’s seat or on the ceiling of the car.
DSLR monitors are often used by filmmakers to make it easier for them to view the footage they have shot. These monitors are often attached to a DSLR camera’s shoe. Filmmakers sometimes also attach a DSLR monitor to their DSLR rig’s cage support system or rail.
Why Use a DSLR Monitor?
Many filmmakers choose to use DSLR monitors because they make it easier for you to focus while filming. This is much more convenient than not being able to focus closely on the footage until filming has commenced. The articulated screen of a DSLR monitor is another reason why it is handy to have. It makes it easier for you to see the image on the screen, even if the screen is above you.
DSLR monitors are also good for when you have multiple people viewing the screen simultaneously. Everyone will be able to see the action on the screen in full detail, without having to squint. This can make collaboration among those working on a film much easier.
