The camera picture (with up to DCI-4K with 24p) comes via HDMI input and enables via HDMI Loop Out also the forwarding of the video signal to another device such as a video radio link. The Feelworld F5 Pro offers useful functions such as histogram, false colors, focus aid, embedded audio, pixel to pixel, anamorphic mode, image flip, frame guides, a nine-grid and more. The various functions can be accessed by touch or by using the dedicated control buttons. For a better view of the current camera image, it can be enlarged by pinch zooming with two fingers via the touch screen.
Feelworld F5 Pro Functions
On the back of the monitor is a Sony F970 external installation and power supply kit that can be used to power (via the Aux power output) additional external devices such as wireless links or LED lights from a Sony F970 battery. The power comes either from the DC power input or the USB-C port - the 8.4V output can also be used to power the camera with a dummy battery.
The F5 Pro can be attached to the camera via its Cold Shoe or its 1/4-20 threads, which are located at the top, bottom and right, on a cage or the tilt arm that comes with it. This allows the F5 Pro to be rotated a full 360 degrees. In addition, the tilt arm has its own cold shoe mount for accessories such as a mic phone, LED light or wireless receiver.
Feelworld F5 Pro in different setups
The set also includes a sun visor to prevent disturbances from light coming in from the side. The Feelworld F5 Pro costs around 140 dollars and is already available online.
