Best Monitor for BMPCC 4k

1) FEELWORLD FW568

Feelworld FW568 is actually quite a moderately priced external monitor. It is a 5.5-inch On-Camera monitor with a Full HD resolution of 1920 X 1152 and 16:9 display. Its screen type is In-plane switching (IPS). Its build gives an ultra-thin look and weighs a mere 175g. It also has a pixel density of 40PPI.

The external monitor has a brightness of 500 cd/m2. It also boasts of a 1000:1 contrast ratio which delivers sharper and clearer images that are richer in color and detail. 

This external monitor is very optimized for DSLR cameras and includes various features like peaking filter, false colors, pixel to pixel, embedded audio, nine grid, image freeze, anamorphic mode, image flip, frame guides, check field, and histogram, among others. 

Aside from being lightweight, it has a sunshade which makes shooting photos and videos easy and avoids any interference by light and provides an overall good viewing experience. The menu controls are pretty easy to use. There are two different feature buttons that are programmable to the features that are used by you the most. 

It has a 4K HDMI loop-in and loop-out. This allows not only to send live signals but also to send them out to other monitors, which is a big plus in terms of connectivity. It also has a DC in and DC out, a 3.5mm earphone slot, and a USB upgrade. The FW568 has a Cold Shoe mounted tilt arm, which can rotate 360 degrees, which makes viewing convenient. 

The biggest problem faced is that this monitor is optimized for DSLR. Its DC-DC power supply is designed for lower wattage power like that of a DSLR camera; the BMPCC 4K requires a minimum wattage of 22 watts, which the monitor is unable to supply. The user will have to find alternate solutions to this problem.
