    Cengiz, it's actually a SmallHD DP4 monitor. With the hood on, I haven't had any problems during daytime shooting.

    Hi all, I finally joined BMCUser just to post in this thread!

    I went a bit nuts with my build and traded size for other things, but I've shot a bunch of stuff with the BMMCC as my A Cam and it works a treat. There are some usability issues, but I do a bit of run and gun solo operator stuff, often in mixed lighting, and I'm happy to trade some usability for being able to shoot 3:1 RAW. Plus that 95wh V-Lock battery powers the camera and the monitor for 6+ hours, and balances the camera for handheld and a little bit of shoulder work as well. Most of the bits I got from Smallrig, with a Lanparte Battery Pinch and the Shape wooden handgrip. That handgrip is great, it rotates by pressing the red button like the FS5, and I usually have it positioned next to the HDMI port for handheld work. I also DIY-ed a little control box on the left which makes a nice little handgrip when I have it on the shoulder. A couple of bits of velcro and a spare bag divider makes a shoulder pad.

    Some updates on my rig, now servo zoom and focus correction when zooming to make a non parfocal lens at least close to parfocal

    Zoom functionality https://vimeo.com/208145347 (The strength of the press defined the zoom speed.)

    Parfocal functionality https://vimeo.com/208277822 (Pretty simple correction on the range of 24 to 60 mm that is most problematic on the Canon 24-105 mm f4)

    Nice addition with the new zoom control. This leaves the pot knob for Iris, when using EF zoom lenses.
    Cheers
