FSI Monitors Now 5D Mark II Compatible
Full 1080 Support in Live View and Playback Modes
The Canon 5D Mark II DSLR camera has become a very popular video production tool. However, finding an affordable high quality professional monitor to work in conjunction with the unit can be difficult. While most consumer type HDMI equipped televisions work with the 5D Mark II, many professional monitors do not, especially those equipped with DVI instead of HDMI inputs. Typically most monitors will work at least at 480P with the Canon, but many monitors will not support the 1080 HDMI output when in Live View or Playback Mode. While the 5D Mark II does switch to 480 output when recording many operators still find it very useful to be able to frame, focus, and review footage in HD. In light of this Flanders Scientific is happy to announce that all FSI monitor models are now compatible with the 1080 HDMI output from the Canon 5D Mark II.
