Elvid – a LifeSaver!
If you follow the blog, you know I’ve bought a number of video monitors. The reason, being able to do it all by myself when shooting videos like my own videos or my Vet Chronicles. While the previous monitors all did a great job, they don’t do one thing my new Elvid 4K HDMI Monitor does for me. Shoot video while not wear reading glasses, like my last video on sensor cleaning! If I could just sit still and concentrate on just them little monitors, I’d be OK but that’s not the case. Between dealing with lighting, camera, taping and interviewing, I found myself going nuts when it came to checking the video (in particular sharpness) as it was running. The Elvid 4K HDMI Monitor takes care of all my problems because it is just gorgeous!
This is the Elvid STV-150-4KH Field Monitor. It is portable. It’s not portable that you can attach it to a bracket on your tripod, cage or gimbal, but it’s portable in that it runs on 120 or a battery (the battery rocks, goes for hours) and be taken anywhere with ease. It comes in its own case, the front and back of which comes off for use as you see in these two photos. The actual image quality of the picture is 4k beautiful! A single image like you see here, fills the screen but you can run four cameras at the same time (the most I’ve done is two) and see the signal from all four at once. It has more adjustments then I will ever use. I’ve had it hooked up to the Z7 & D850. For many of you, this might be overkill but you wildlife photographers shooting video like from a blind, this is a great monitor I highly recommend you consider at the very least. I swear by the Elvid 4K HDMI Monitor, it’s a lifesaver!
