I need it because the redrock 35mm adapter inverts all images so you need a monitor that can invert them back while you are shooting. Its actually a great set up, i just got a battery for the monitor, so the big ugly cord is no longer on the camera.

I am ashamed to say I wouldn't even know how to use most of those toys!

I have my simple little Acer digi-cam - which I can use - but it is nothing special.



Oh and I took the pic of my camera with my SonyEricsson k800i which I think is one of the best phones I have ever owned - in fact it is THE best phone I have ever owned - the only feature that was better on something else was the Walkman related stuff of my w800i but the camera on this is great and in the right conditions it can be used to catch some great images!

Yes you have to flip the image back in final cut. There is no quality loss though, it looks great. I will post a screen shot soon, planning on shooting a short film with it in a couple months as part of a competition in new york.

Now when you say invert are we talking colors or a mirror image?

Nice PowerbookG4! How much have you invested in that setup so far? I know the 35mm adapter costs a good left nut or two.
I have a Panasonic AG-DVX100A, with a Sennheiser MK66 Mic kit. The 35mm adapter is about $10k for my camera. Will try to post up pics once I'm not so lazy to drag out my craptacular still photo camera.

It costs a good amount of money, so far its a little over 10k but before the film festival I am entering it will be a little over 20 (steady cam, jib, a few more lenses, and a firestore drive)

Well actually, we have alot more going into it. We have 10 macs which include 5 imacs c2ds a mac pro, a quad g5, a mabook pro, a powerbook, and a macbook. and 2 of those cameras... then the talent we have behind the equipment is unmatched. We are going to create an entire 8 minute movie in less then 48 hours.
