To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don't need wireless monitoring on set often enough to justify the more expensive options, plus I didn't want something that added mpr4 complexity to my camera rig. The CineEye is compact, has it's own battery and anyone with a smart phone or tablet can just install the app and connect to it.
I've only used it a couple of times but the connection has been stable and, while,there is lag, it's no worse than you'd get on any wired HDMI monitor. If you're looking for a simple, low budget solution, I can highly recommend the CineEye.
After a few months of woking well one day on set it refused to start properly. It didn't start for a couple of days and then a week later started working again. Made me realise I couldn't depend on it on set. Otherwise great for the money.
This is very much the device I have been waiting for. A small, lightweight, inexpensive transmitter. I don’t need it to reach for miles. I don’t mind a bit of latency. So I’m very happy. It even has a host of film features. I can you my iPhone & iPad screen (no re-investing in an expensive screen and transmitter system) And the price is terrific.
But it’s not without a few flaws. The company, Chinese, doesn’t have a great website (trying to download the manual resulted in a ‘Page not found” error). I don’t know how to load a LUT! The Power-on light is very, very dim so outdoors it’s very hard to see if it is on. The focus assist needs some work…lines don’t always appear even when sensitivity is cranked up. The wifi connection is very good, but can take a while for it to connect. So if you power down to save battery life, prepare for a headache trying to get it connected again. The battery is exceptionally long lasting (under 4 hours), but not swappable. Once it runs out, that’s it. You have to wait. Not a practical consideration.
Still, not a deal breaker for me. I love the little box. But I may invest in the Version 2.0 if they address these drawbacks.
Actually works as intended, delay is tolerable. My A7iii can't run an HDMI output and record in 4k at the same time, due to a limitation in the camera, so check for that kind of stuff before buying! Otherwise works as intended!
