my external monitor setup really helped out with this set. pointing straight upwards, i could not even see the camera's LCD. i can't say enough how the large viewing area helped me in focussing. all my errors are now only related to settings, but i quickly fix that after 1 or 2 shots.

last year's wasp nest in my patio's copper chime has come back to life with more tenants, so it was begging to be shot.

fantastic. Saw a wasp building a nest above my front door today. I thought about getting out the camera, but the wife got a flip-flop instead....

What method of connection do you use with your monitor? Is it self-powered?

yes, it is self powered. indoors,in my little staging/studio area, i use the hdmi output from the 5d2 to a converter, then from the converter its component to the monitor.

outdoors, because i can not use the converter, i just use the other output from the 5D2, AV i believe?
