· What a field monitor is, and how it helps you in the field
· How to connect a field monitor to your camera
· Using peaking or focus in red to assist in getting sharp focus
· Using zebra patterns and color assist options to get proper exposure
· Passing the video signal thru a field monitor to other devices, like an electric viewfinder (EVF) or larger client monitor.
