Camera Field Monitor,5.5″ 4K Input with 3500mAh Rechargeable Li-ion Battery 1920×1080 HDMI Screen Camera Field Monitor for DSLR Camera/Camcorder
Many photographers have a hard time looking at the small LCD screen on their cameras. For years I have used an external screen for films, but having this luxury came with a few issues. The biggest problem for me, is the large battery that most of these monitors come with. Some of them use the canon LP-E6 battery, which is small but is still too much weight on my camera.
I finally decided to give myself a gift and I did a search on Amazon for “USB powered field Monitors”. I found dozens of LCD screens, but most of them were too large or way too expensive. After scrolling through so many I found this monitor. It fit all off the requirements I desired and I purchased it immediately. I will put the link and specs below for people who are interested.
I hope you enjoy these small videos I share on this site. Each one of them helped me fine tune my camera skills so that I can compete with the professionals out there who make the big bucks lol. These quick tutorials will expand your knowledge of camera angles, grid lines, auto focus points and things most people never think about in filmmaking online. It’s not so simple, you have to learn all of these small things to create your own style and master everybody else’s. Every photographer or filmmaker has their own blueprint on how they film, but the basic steps in this video are used by almost everyone. save this video and take notes!!!
I watch this guy’s videos all of the time for film tips. This video is especially good for people who are looking for that cinematic film look on Canon Cameras. I use these setting as well. Check it out and subscribe to his channel.
I often wondered how people create the photos for all of these product reviews online and on YouTube. I saw a few kits on amazon that looked cool, but I’m sick of always having to spend a bunch of money to do small things that I can create myself. Here is what I did.

This is my cheap DIY product photography setup
1. Buy 2 large black and white pieces of cardboard paper from the local dollar store.
2. Also Get some cheap clamps or clothes pins while you’re in the store.
3. Get some string and scotch tape
4. Aluminum foil (to reflect the light)
5. Use any small lamp or lighting you have in the house.
6. Use a TV table or plastic folding table
Put them all together and this is all you need to get yourself started. Here are some of the photos I took with my DIY setup.
