As some of you may know, I’m a Feelworld Master Brand Ambassador 🙂 This gives me a chance to review their latest products, and here it is – for a few weeks I was using the new on-camera monitor Feelworld Master MA6P.
In the video below you can find my thoughts about this monitor and a small comparison to the smaller model – MA5.
Check out the official Feelworld Master shop here.
I think both monitors, MA5 and MA6P are extremely good price to quality ratio and will be a good choice for someone, who doesn’t want to spend lots of money on the monitor. Also, if you’re not sure if the external monitor is good accessory for you – Feelworld Master would be a great choice. You get very nice quality fullHD monitor, that let’s you easily focus below 200$.
I would suggest all Sony users to consider getting such monitor for two main reasons:
- Shitty built-in Sony screen – Sony dimms the screen when you’re recording in 4K which makes it extremely hard to operate in sunny day. External monitor also helps you with focus (however most of the Sony cameras have very nice AF, so it’s not my main point)
- No selfie screen in Sony (except for a6400) – if you want to film yourself, film tutorials, talk to camera etc. it’s way easier to do if you see yourself and the framing.
Check out also my article about using an external monitor in hyperlapse.
Both monitors have the same resolution (fullHD), ports (HDMI in and out, headphone jack, DC in to power the monitor and DC out to power the camera), battery plate for sony NP-F or Canon LP series batteries. So, what are the differences between MA5 and MA6P?
- Screen size – MA5 is a smaller, 5″ monitor, MA6P is a slightly bigger, 5.5″ monitor. The difference is not that big, but if you’re on the gimbal, every gram counts.
- Mounting points – MA5 has three ‘built in’ mounting points (standard 1/4″ thread). MA6P has one, that can be screwed in two positions. Check out the video for details.
As I told in the video, choose the monitor that suits your needs best. If you work mostly on gimbal, I would suggest smaller MA5. For tripod work consider MA6P or even ultrabright MA7U.
That’s all for today. I hope this was useful for you 🙂 If you haven’t seen – check out my latest aerial hyperlapse video > https://beyondthetime.net/mavic-2-pro-drone-hyperlapse-video-and-review/
Concerning your comment about Sony camera AF…using AF is a newb move. These monitors are great because they include peaking, which my Canon T6i doesn’t have natively. Plus, the ridiculously fast response time of the MA6 monitors means I’m not ‘chasing the focus’ with lag.
