Here's a product overview of an affordable 10 bit monitor from OSEE that's part of a lot of conversations lately. OSEE is a leading manufacturer of professional broadcast equipment in China since its foundation in 2001, and is just starting to offer their products here in the USA. The OSEE LCM156 is a 15.6" has been a favorite tool of mine lately when working on projects where it can be beneficial to share the feed from your cameras.
Another added benefit not always found in monitors at this price is the ability to add a LUT to the LCM156. By displaying a LUT on your monitor, your clients can see the display with what your footage would normally look like once you've colored it - even though your camera is shooting in a flat LOG (c-log, s-slog, v-log, BMD Film, etc) profile. The OSEE LCM156 is not only great to work with on set for monitoring, but every display from OSEE is carefully color calibrated, which is also great for Colorists and Editors looking for a nice 10 bit system.
Having a display like the 15.6" OSEE LCM1546 is also very handy when you're working with a small crew or even by yourself. I often turn the monitor around so that I can see exactly what the camera sees while adjusting lighting or making sure boom poles and light stands aren't in the shot. Without a decent sized monitor, you would have to walk back to the camera to check every little change you make which adds up to a lot of time walking back and forth.
