Before buying a monitor, we must firstly understand that monitoring images is the basic attribute of a monitor. In the process of film and television production, as an indispensable tool for video monitoring, its uses are becoming more and more widely used, ranging from film production to wedding shooting, and there are many types for choosing. So what kind of monitor is suitable for you? It is easier to understand like buying a car.

When we decide to buy a car, we usually go to the 4S shop to take a look. Experienced sales consultants generally don't come up and introduce you to the models they sell, but first ask you the main purpose of buying a car. If it is just a travel, it will recommend you a car with stable performance, safety and fuel efficiency, and a high cost performance. It will not recommend you luxury models with powerful functions and high prices. The same goes for purchasing monitors. Each manufacturer has a basic physical index and function definition before the new product is established. This is the use or positioning of the product, and the purpose is to meet the needs of different levels and different uses.

choose different functions based on different applications

Taking film shooting as an example, the on-camera monitor is generally used by photographers and focus puller. The on-camera monitor is best equipped with a highlight function. Highlighting refers to the brightness of the monitor, which is often referred to as cd/㎡. Generally, the brightness value of small-size monitors is mostly between 250 and 350 cd/㎡. This brightness application under the sunlight must use the sun hood, otherwise it will affect the observation effect. Especially applied to the shooting of Steadicam and remote control helicopters, the monitor and the photographer often form an up and down viewing angle, and the screen is more easily interfered by strong light. If a monitor with a brightness above 800cd/㎡ is used, even direct sunlight will not affect the photographer's focus control.

It should be emphasized that the highlight monitor mainly increases the number and power of the LED backlight tubes, which increases the power consumption and heat compared to the ordinary brightness monitor. Due to the limitations of the size of the small monitor and the application environment, it is impossible to provide heat dissipation wings and heat dissipation fans, which not only has high requirements on the photoelectric conversion efficiency of the LED lamp tube, the angle of light diffusion and convergence, and the light guide material. At the same time, other supporting materials must also have the characteristics of high temperature resistance and aging resistance, and the material cost will be much higher than that of ordinary monitors. Therefore, when purchasing raw materials, it is necessary to make appropriate choices according to actual needs.

Take the RUIGE products as an example:
HL-700HD monitor
 
This is a high-brightness monitor developed by Ruige specifically for film shooting.

HL-700HD no need sun hood for outdoor shooting
 
This monitor brightness is up to 1000cd/m², which is the terminator of outdoor strong light interference. No need to use a sun hood for outdoor shooting.

made of aluminum-magnesium alloy

The monitor body is made of aluminum-magnesium alloy material, with embedded front and rear alloy panels, which enhances the anti-deformation ability of the whole machine, is conducive to the overall heat dissipation of the machine, ensuring the stability of the monitor.

At the same time, the whole machine is only 570g, which is convenient and easy to carry. It is priority choice of the pre-shooting for photographers, focus pullers, field recorders.

The monitor products are dazzling, the functions are similar, and it is indeed easy to pick eyes. In addition to choosing based on  the special performance and personal needs of each monitor, you still need to look at the brand reputation. Choosing a familiar brand is also a guarantee of quality.

Finally, let's take a look at the wonderful performance of the HL-700HD monitor.
