Another of the drawbacks we have already found is that the video monitored through the glasses DOES NOT contain the ZEBRA info available on the camera's swing-out LCD monitor. This means that the operator must have a good feel for what the video should look like using eyeballs only. Of course, you can take the glasses off and make all the necessary adjustments prior to shooting, then go solo on the glasses for framing and focus only. That, itself, is advantageous.
There are trade offs, but I really think the glasses are worth it, especially when trying to do outside work here in the desert.
