The Aputure V-Screen VS-2 is a 7-inch high quality display designed for use as a basic professional field monitor or external viewfinder. The VS-2 provides a range of inputs for your camera (see features for compatibility), outputs your camera's normal display information on a larger screen in more detail and adds a number of professional monitoring and image control features.
The Zebra function allows for additional exposure control and highlights overexposed 'blown-out' areas (*please see advice below). The focus peaking mode allows you to fine tune your focus on the large detailed display. The 'Crop-Assistant' safe area display mode allows you to see what areas of your image will be cropped at a variety of screen ratios (2.35:1/1.33:1/1.66:1/1.85:1), allowing you to frame properly for your chosen aspect ratio, an especially useful tool for people who plan to crop their footage. Please note that the VS2 does not include any of the advanced functions of the VS-3, namely False Colour, a Histogram display and HDMI looping.
The VS-2 is known for having high quality colour reproduction and detail and is useful in shooting situations where your camera's display is too small or inaccessible and for viewing by clients or crew members. It is also thin and lightweight making it extremely portable and easily mountable. The VS-2 package includes a magic arm for easy mounting and movement of the monitor.
*As with any external field monitor, the VS-2 monitor relies on the image signal from your camera to determine what is overexposed and each camera will ouput a slightly different signal, meaning that the Zebra function may overcompensate or undercompensate by degrees. We therefore strongly recommend testing the VS-2 Zebra function with your camera and analysing test footage to ensure that you know how the Zebra function is behaving in relation to the final image. You will then know how the VS-2 is seeing the image and be able to make correct exposure decisions and adjustments.
