In less than a year, it’s become a go-to external monitor/4K RAW recorder hybrid for Sony FS700, Canon C500, and Arri operators — and now the Odyssey7Q price has been reduced for a limited time from $2,295 to $1,795.
All of a sudden, external monitor/recorders are “in.”
Whether you’re a Canon 5D3 user wanting to surmount its 29 minute recording limitation, the H.264 codec and/or the absence of video focus and exposure tools; a Canon C100 operator wanting to turn it into the functional equivalent of a C300; a Sony FS700 operator wanting to record in a better codec and/or in 4K; or even a top-of-the-food-chain C500 or Arri operator wanting a field monitor which also just happens to record 4K RAW files with large swappable media, this new category of accessory is the fastest and cheapest way to get you where you want to go.
Convergent Design’s Odyssey series has a solid reputation in the industry, and to celebrate their success, they’re offering $500 off their top of the line 7.7” OLED Odyssey7Q for a limited time only.
