FieldMonitor™ lets you wirelessly monitor picture, exposure, and color using Wi-Fi-capable Panasonic™ Lumix™ cameras, Sony™ cameras, and Teradek™ H.264 transmitters. FieldMonitor turns your device into a portable viewfinder / engineering monitor usable anywhere on set — no cables needed.

Use markers to show safe areas, aspect ratios, and framing grids. Desqueeze anamorphic images from 1.33x, 1.5x, and 2.0x lenses, with cropping to several final aspect ratios. Flip the image on either axis for vlogging, mirror rigs, or low-mode Steadicam work. Load 3D LUTs to make log images viewable and modify image appearance (camera sources only). Use focus assist to help nail your focus (camera sources only).

View a waveform monitor, vectorscope, or histogram—or all three—to monitor exposure and color balance. Each ’scope is movable and resizable. WFM and histogram display Y (luma), RGB, or Y+RGB, and the WFM also shows YCbCr. The vectorscope shows 75% and 100% targets and can be magnified 2x or 4x.

With an iPhone 5S or later, iPod touch 6G or later, iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2 or later, or iPad Pro, you can also show a false-color picture with adjustable levels.

With a supported camera and lens you can start/stop recording, control exposure and color settings, and zoom or focus remotely.

- FieldMonitor talks directly to ”hybrid” cameras like the GH5 and A7Sii, but not to cine cameras like the DVX200, EVA-1, FS7, or F55.
- Audio is not transmitted from camera sources.
- Panasonic's Wi-Fi image resolution is limited to 640x480 or 320x240; Sony's Wi-Fi image resolution is 1024x768 or 640x480.
- "Smart Remote" Sonys do NOT allow use of Picture Profiles (including S-Log) when using Wi-Fi remote monitoring or control.
- Camera controls are limited to shooting controls: there is no playback or download capability. Use Image App (Panasonic) or PlayMemories Mobile (Sony) for those functions.
- FieldMonitor runs on iPhone X in the "safe area", avoiding the curvy bits and leaving room for the Home Bar at the bottom of the screen.

SUPPORTED SOURCES (check website for full details):

Teradek: FieldMonitor supports Teradek Cube (100–600 series), VidiU, and Clip transmitters. Bolt, Serv, and 700–800 series Cubes are NOT supported.

Panasonic: FieldMonitor should work with any Lumix camera that transmits a live view while recording when using Panasonic's Image App. The GH3 and earlier cameras do NOT support video recording in remote mode.

Sony: FieldMonitor should work with any Sony camera that transmits a live view while recording when using PlayMemories Mobile, including the A5100, A6300, A6500, A7S, A7Sii, A7ii, A7iii, A9, and A99ii. A5000, A6000, A7, A99 and earlier cameras do NOT support video recording in remote mode. Except for A7iii, A9, A99ii and newer, these cameras do NOT allow Picture Profiles in remote mode: no SLog (full details on website)!

*** Please use Image App to test your Panasonic's remote-control capabilities, or PlayMemories Mobile to test your Sony, before buying FieldMonitor for use with those cameras! FieldMonitor can't make the camera do anything more than the manufacturer's app can. ***
