…So why go through all the effort to build this much of a contraption?…Well, it really comes down to having a professional…shooting environment or taking a professional level of control.…Maybe you're going to have clients on set and you want them to have the…ease of being able to look at the details on the monitor as you shoot.…Well, that's going to work pretty well.…They could clearly see behind you on the large monitor what's…happening and they don't have to be breathing over your neck.…Or maybe you're going to be making lots of…changes in the camera and you want greater confidence.…
For example I want to dial in the perfect exposure here.…Well, I've got the camera set up, and what I'm…doing here is I'm making a few adjustments to the f-stop.…So maybe I shoot at F9, and it's going to load in.…And I can see that it's a bit overexposed.…Now the nice thing is I can look at advanced options here like the histogram.…And I clearly see that the camera is running hot.…Now it's raw so I can probably recover…that, but there's no reason to shoot it wrong.…
