Astra LED

Astra 1×1 Bi-Color LED Panels are powerful, versatile, and great for fast-paced shoots. They require very little additional equipment and are lightweight. In order to increase its softness, you can easily add a light panel soft box to the light.

Marshall V-LCD71MD Monitor

Sharp Sharp Sharp is how I would like to describe this 7 inch true 1080p panel monitor. Yes it is a little pricey but totally worth it. Because we shoot almost everything in 4K, only to finish in 1080p, it is important to make sure everything is tack sharp. Especially if we plan to crop or pan on the image. This monitor is similar in features and look with Marshall’s line of monitors. I am a huge fan of the false coloring (or Predator Mode as we call it) on these monitors. It’s great to double check my exposure at anytime. I take it everywhere as it’s my go to monitor on any shoot. The sdi/hdmi loop thru does come in handy sometimes when I’m shooting with a cam with only one output.
