Hello,

Are there any other members here using the new XF605. I would love to start a chat group about tips and tricks and great ideas to get the most out of this great video camera.

I'm using one heavily.  Ask away 🙂

Great Nick! Are you using an external camera monitor, if so, which one and how has it worked out for you?

I use a Ninja Inferno, which is 7".  Held onto Manfrotto tripod by 240 mini arm.  They pair really well.  The monitor and 605 both share view assist functions.  The camera is able to keep (e.g. focus assist) separate from the footage stored, but monitors generally cannot.  So point of caution.  We are reshooting this week following baking the  focus assist into the footage recorded to the Ninja.

The Inferno is discontinued.  My only gripe with the Ninja 7" monitors (besides the problem above) is there are no good sun shades available as there are for the smaller V model.

The 605 is extremely flexible allowing you to route virtually any OSD to any arrangements of video out ports, so no need to make our huge gaff 🙂  At least not due to 605 limitations, which are few.

The monitor records 4k 10bit in apple prores, so easy to edit.  Hope this helps!

Great respone, Nick! Thank you very much, truly was helpful and interesting about the warning, I will add this our our Bag notes. Speaking of bags, I just purchased a Shape SBag (My other case was too small), its ok but I was wondering what you are using for any Run-n-Gun work?

We shoot with 3 cameras and an audio recorder.  All wildlife mini docs (Dallas Nature Channel).  So we have a system of color-coded ski-caps (perfect for gear!).  All gear (each in its own hat) go into backpacks!

Wow, that is awesome, I would love to see pic's some day of your system, you have been very helpful! Thank you!
