RGB Parade
The RGB parade splits the image into separate red, green, and blue channels and shows you the color values for each. RGB Parade is fundamental in balancing out the shadow region when leveling a shot.

The operator adjusts the focus control until the RED indicator outlines on the desired area are razor sharp, indicating optimal focus. For the best results, be sure the subject is properly exposed.

By adjusting the camera’s Iris, the subject of the image will change color based on specific brightness values indicating optimal exposure.

Clip Guides
The D5w offers adjustable upper Clip Guide levels to accurately display overexposed images in any shooting condition. The operator simply assigns the upper IRE to their preference and any exposure over the set IRE limit will flash in a vivid purple, indicating only the over exposed area.
