The Odyssey7 is both a high quality portable monitor and a powerful HD video recorder. As a monitor it features a 7.7” OLED screen with 1280x800 resolution. OLED technology means that that colors are extremely accurate and contrast is great, with true inky blacks and brilliant whites. This is an image one can trust for designing lighting and setting exposure.
Additional monitoring tools/exposure aids include a programmable false color mode, zebras a waveform monitor (luma or RGB parade) and a histogram (luma or RGB parade). There are also LUTs built in for proper viewing of the LOG modes available from numerous popular cameras. For precision focusing there is a pixel zoom with two levels of magnification and a programmable focus assist with three styles of enhancement and a large range of adjustability.
As a recorder the Odyssey7 records Apple ProRes 422(HQ) in HD onto a removable 2.5” Odyssey SSD. SSDs are available in 256G and 512G, offering up to nine hours of continuous shooting to a single SSD. Additional recording formats will be added via free firmware updates.
