Sweatpants Media director/DP Jonny Zeller relied on a SmallHD AC7 7-inch field monitor on a recent Toyota commercial. The SmallHD monitor gave the client and crew a good look at what the video would look like when it came out of post. “We were after a gritty, grainy look,” says Zeller. “The look was vital to us and we were confident when we saw it on the SmallHD monitor.”
During chase scenes, the SmallHD monitor provided a clear picture of the camera’s perspective for the camera operator, who was remotely controlling pan and tilt of a Freefly Systems MoVI-stabilized camera in a separate vehicle. The AC7’s focus assist feature made it easier to judge focus, especially in the bright desert location.
