Hi guys. 
Forced to work with this monitor now and looking for ways to see focus more accurately, boost the aperture or something.
Any having the same problem with it?.

Go “Old School”, run a tape measure & get marks?

Steven i’m not taking about methodology, i’m Talking about an specific monitor and it’s adjusments. But since you asked, yes, I still run a tape, a laser, mark the actors, the dolly and get space references across the set, but I also use a cinetape in some cases and a monitor to quick check focus in some positions, mostly on wide open long telephotos when not having DoF for both eyes can ruin a take if you try to do it only by judging measures by eye or when even the cinetape isn’t useful; or to quick check a finished shot if in doubt of the focus. I use the monitor as another tool like thousands of asistants in a world where the sensors are becoming larger than monitor screens itself, and even Preston Light Ranger is a tool to exclusively use looking at a monitor.

It really depends on the camera, some people prefer to have it heavily cranked up but I find this gives a false sense of security for super critical and shallow work. 
Arri cameras I keep mine at -4 to -6 just to the point where a spectral will vibrate the eyes. 
Other cameras have other levels.

They say the new F-5A is closer to the 58 than de 55 is, in terms os peaking, aperture, focus capabilities. 
Have you tested it?
