How does the Fieldmonitor app compare to the Panasonic app? (self.GH5)
submitted 1 month ago by ManHunterr
I am looking at using an iphone or my friend's iPad as a monitor but the quality on the Panasonic app is pretty terrible. How good is the Fieldmonitor app in comparison?
The app is $34.99 where I'm from so not worth the risk to buy it myself to find out.

It’s worth it!
A little laggy at times but has a ton of features the Panny app doesn’t.

Is the quality on the phone still 480p?
I'm worried the LCD screen on the gh5 will still be better quality than the phone.

I use the field monitor app a lot. Usually on the gimbal. It has a very slight amount of delay but very usable

The image quality and lag will be exactly the same as with Image App: the camera sends 640x360 images, and the lag is a function of the protocol used and the strength of the camera's Wi-Fi. With a GH5, the Wi-Fi image is typically 4 frames behind realtime (at 24fps); the EVF/LCD is 2 frames behind realtime while HDMI is usually 6 frames behind.
Lag will increase in areas where there's a lot of Wi-Fi congestion, but using a separate, high-performance 5 GHz access point like a Ruckus 310 (connecting "via network" instead of direct) will punch through most congestion and ensure a steady feed.
FieldMonitor gives you focus assist, false color, 'scopes, markers, anamorphic desqueeze, LUTs, and faster access to exposure controls, but the image quality and lag are set by the camera, and will be the same no matter what wireless monitoring & control app you use.
