Why you need a monitor

Brian Liepe: There are so many advantages to using external monitors with your DSLR. Most DSLRs have a mini HDMI connection from which you can send an HD video signal to a third-party monitor. Typically, the screens are larger than the LCD on the back of your camera and with the proper hardware, we can reposition the screen to accommodate different shooting conditions. A lot of these monitors have a variety of tools that can help us with focusing and exposure. They can tell us where our highlights are not protected. They can enhance edges and pixels and lines and contours to help us achieve focus as well.

One of the most valuable benefits to using a monitor is that the image can be more easily shared with your collaborators onset. Positioning the monitor or looping the signal through to additional monitors allows your team to see what's being captured by the camera. This helps with communication immensely, which is super important on set.
