Cinemartin Releases a 7” HD Monitor for 99$ Bucks! I’ve purchased cheap monitors before and to be honest I think I got out of them what I needed from them at the time I could afford them. With technology performance and functions increase and price usually decreases.
This might be a great option and for $99 bucks you just might get out of it more than it costs!

I’ve got an itch for a new camera. I don’t really need one, but I do – if that makes sense for you. I actually need a low light camera, 4K and I’m not really keen on getting a DSLR or Mirrorless like the A7S/A7SII. My options are below – yes, there are other options, but these hit the below $ 10,000 dollar price level I can afford. I think I’m leaning onto the C500 Mark I. Why? Price, performance, low light capability, proven track record, not as noisy as the other candidates.
