    I can promise you, I'm fully impressed with this monitor.
    Used it on an outdoor shoot, mid day bright sun and could clearly see without a hood !!!

    The fan really could be a bummer. On the video the fan is really loud even on the low bright mode. I wonder if there is only two positions : either on or off. (No adaptive mode).

    And how would it perform in a portabrace bag?

    I can see why automating the fan would be a problem since it could come on during a take. I also see a lot of people leaving the fans off and potentially cooking their monitors if the fan controls are buried in menus. Especially rentals who may not even know you need to turn on the fan manually. Maybe you can program a Function key to toggle the fan on and off? Then you just hit the function key after the take to turn on the fan and cool it off and hit it again when are about to roll to turn it off. Is the fan only needed when the backlight is at the maximum brightness?

    Definitely something I'll be trying out.
