    Curious what the concensus is on the best 7” camera monitor in terms of color accuracy and contrast/black level. Money being no object. I’ve found a post production monitor that I love (LG Cx48 OLED) and is always consistent with how my iPhone 11 OLED looks. I haven’t found that perfect on camera monitor that reliably displays that fidelity.
    I have the 7” Red Ultra Bright and it’s lovely for monitoring outdoors, but the saturation is very punchy and the black levels are raised.

    None of the 7" on board monitors I've seen pass muster for critical color/contrast. FWIW, I think they are engineered with other priorities at the forefront. IAC, unless you have a proper hood, operator wearing black, black floppy behind you, etc the viewing environment common to an on board monitoring situation would defeat your purpose anyway. YMMV.

    I compared the Cine7 to a color grading projector and it's really close to it.
