Martin Lisius is a filmmaker based at Prairie Pictures, Inc. in Arlington, Texas, and is founder and lead cinematographer for StormStock, a boutique stock footage collection specializing in the production and licensing of premium weather content worldwide since 1993. Let‘s see what’s his thoughts on Portkeys BM5 III WR!
We use the Portkeys BM5 III WR 5.5 HDMI/SDI touchscreen monitor with our RED Komodo. So far, it has performed well with no issues. It is bright, sturdy and is compatible with the RED Komodo 6K, as advertised. It connects with the camera wirelessly. Portkeys has a video showing how to do this and how to use the various features.
We’ve had a couple questions for them and they responded right away. Things that I like best are the bright display with a solid build quality, color, tools, rugged build, ability to load LUTS, compatibility with the Komodo, and technical support. Colors are accurate and I love being able to load and store luts in the monitor. SDI + HDMI are also a bonus.
