AndyCine FHD field monitor with Sony a6500

AndyCine FHD field monitor – budget price, pro features

Don’t be deceived by the looks, we’ve all heard. Well, I kind of got deceived by the looks of this monitor, and underestimated it at first. The manufacturer sent me a unit to review, but I didn’t use it right away because I did not expect much good from this monitor. Once I started it using, though, I quickly realized that this is a really good monitor.

I don’t know whether you can find a camera monitor right now that offers a better value. Despite its budget price, the AndyCine A6 offers pro functionality. The false color is probably what I appreciate the most.

The monitor also has guidelines for various aspect ratios. Since I often shoot in the Cinemascope wide aspect ratio, it’s great to know right away what is in the frame, and what I don’t have to worry about.

Here’s my full review of the AndyCine monitor

You can get the AndyCine A6 field monitor on Amazon, eBay

  1. Looking into this monitor I found so many good deals for great monitors that I never knew were out there. I ended up getting the Feelworld T7. 7 inch monitor with aluminum housing. Lighter then my Video Assist 5″ and more color accurate!

  2. I looked at numerous reviews and ultimately bought the SmallHD focus monitor. If I could have waited longer, I might have just gotten the upcoming 5″ Atomos monitor. Ebay had a nice coupon and I bought it from one of the major sellers that also sells via Ebay. So I got it 15% below the asking price. My thought is, if I take care of the monitor I can still resell it for $100-200 below what I paid for. And there would people who still would want to buy the smallHD used, just because smallHD has a strong brand. Where as I feel like the cheaper brands probably lose their values, and anyone buying it is not going to save that much than buying it new.
    So I think keeping the potential resell ability in mind, they cost the same, but SmallHD just feels a bit more reliable and more tested, but more importantly and above everything else, it provides almost 2X as much brightness. You can still see with it in bright light and I felt the ability to easily see in most light setting is the reason I want to get an external monitor and I should just pay the extra money and get the SmallHD focus.
