Other features include an adjustable 16:9/4:3 display, dual three-color tally lights, underscan and overscan, image flip, customer editable video title, Canon DSLR scale zoom-in and safe mark display. The DT-X71F, the most feature-rich model in the series, also includes a waveform, vector scope, RGB histogram, red/blue peaking focus assist, zebra, false color, blue only, internal color bars, image rotation and 16-channel SDI (two-channel HDMI) audio meter.
