    I have a Small HD 7" ultrabright, and I'm debating whether or not it's too big for the MoVI. Have you seen people with Gimbals rocking a larger monitor? It's almost double the weight of the 5" and I'm still not sure the best way to power it. Adding an Anton will be crazy and running power from the MoVi might not be the best idea either. What do you think?

    Ehh...I use an Atomos Ninja Flame sometimes and a SmallHD 702 on other occasions. So no, it's not too big. If you have an AC pulling focus and you're just using the monitor for framing; the lesser weight would be the way to go. If not, stick to the larger screen for focus.
    I don't see why you could use the lemo to D-Tap to power the monitor??

    I think the ultra brights might be drawing a lot more power but I’m not 100%

    I used a SmallHD 702 Bright for a long time Sony batt powered , but lastly I bought a 502 Bright more light less cumbersome and less power drain. I found the 502B very clever because the size and framing. your sight cover the full frame size where the 7inch it doesn't. It makes no sense to have a big and heavy screen on the ring (movipro) where the max distance from the rig is a few cm.

    Ah such a great logical way you articulated this. Makes my suspicions clear. Thanks!

    I disagree. The weight is negligible. Bigger is better if you are the dp and really need to see details like lighting subtleties

    I also prefer a 7" monitor, as I'm using a support vest (exhauss) and therefore the rig is at a proper viewing distance for 7". Mostly using my Odyssey 7Q as it's also recording. It's powered by D-Tap, great combination. Got a SmallHD 502 (not bright), when I fall back to it sometimes when I work with other cameras, I feel like I can't judge movement that exactly …

    Just curious Gerfried, what kinda camera are you using and what mount are you using for your 7Q...I am using that monitor as well.

    regarding the 7Q I mostly fly it with my own FS5 for external recording but also use it as a monitor for different kind of cameras. I use the original MoVI quic release plug integrated in the handle. I bought an extra baseplate for the 13mm stud to move the monitor quickly to my magic arm on the side of the ring.
