Production Blooms with ProAm's Iris

Publish date:

I first learned about ProAm USA’s Iris monitor line when I was putting together a crane kit for a client. Since then, Iris monitors have become an important part of my daily shooting. I use the Iris Pro 2 7” LCD monitor on nearly every shoot. It has excellent resolution and a large selection of picture options to adjust the monitor to match my camera. There is a built-in five-hour battery, and I can get even longer run times with an external ProAm power plate.

A built-in 1/4”x20 tripod thread lets me mount the Iris monitor to the camera’s hot shoe via the included ball head. There are even more mounting options using the accessory monitor mounting bracket or articulating arm, also from ProAm.

ProAm not only offers full crane and monitor lines, they also sell mounting accessories, options for cordless power, cases and more. Instead of struggling to find all the gear to configure the perfect setup, I turn to ProAm, which has bundled proven solutions into kits, saving me time and money.

Bohus Blahut has been a TV producer for nearly 20 years in both film and video. He also taught for ten years at Columbia College and was senior producer and host of the nationally syndicated morning talk show Eye Opener. For the last few years he’s been working more frequently in the webcasting space.
