I am confused each monitor takes a different battery and my camera uses a third kind. Does it matter which monitor I use?Or do I have to find a monitor that uses the same battery that my camera uses?I do not mind if monitor uses a different battery even though it will be more expensive having two different batteries and Chargers.
The monitor is either 5 or 7 inch LCD screen that attaches to the battery shoe or a rail that you can attach monitor microphone or a light. I film alot of video and it is a lot easier to see what you are shooting on a bigger screen than the small screen on camera
That's what I am confused about also I guess the both run on different batteries so I guess my concern is if attached to shoe will the camera power it or will they be non compatible, I just saw these monitors at a video class on Saturday and was not able to delve in deeper cause it was about shooting video and I have not been able to find answers on websites that sell them I am looking at one made by a company called Marshall or Llliput but there are some bad reviews on the Lilliput these are not cheap either and I want to make right purchase first time around,
