In the video below, I check out the IndiPRO Tools Pro5 LCD Monitor that was sent to me recently. The Pro5 sports a 5″ screen with all of the straight forward features that an external monitor for this price point will get you.
The IndiPRO Tools Pro5 LCD Monitor was easy to use and straight to the point. Although it does not have all the bells and whistles that much more expensive LCD monitors come with, the Pro5 is fully equipped with the basics you’ll need. This monitor has a resolution of 800×480, and a contrast ratio of 600:1. It has a 1/4″ – 20 screw hole and comes with a 1/4″ – 20 ball head mount by which it attaches onto DSLRs and camcorders. It takes a camera signal by an HDMI input and is shipped with a sunshade.
Here are the specs you’ll get with the IndiPro Tools Pro5:
Valuable Focus and Calibration Features and More
Monochrome and color peaking: 2 modes that highlight an image to help with focus
Adjustable RGB: attains a look as accurate as possible to what is in front of the camera
Blue-gun: mode that helps calibrate the Pro5 by removing all colors but blue from an image
Underscan: shrinks an image a bit, revealing its edges, useful for certain production objectives
Native Canon 5D Live-View Output: shows images in the 5D’s aspect ratio, without stretching them
