    Either of them will allow you to view the composition of your scenes perfectly well.

    NEITHER of them will allow you to judge the accuracy of color or luminance values in your shots or help uou see and hopefully resolve lighting issues in any manner that is dependable nor professional.

    Toss a coin.
