Best 7" Monitor for shooting with 5d Mark III
on Apr 17, 2013 at 7:56:49 pm

Hey all,

Was looking for a little advice. I'm looking for opinions on the best 7" monitor to shoot with. I'd like Waveform/Vector-scope if possible. Also HDMI in/out as well as SDI in/out. If at all possible, HDMI in from camera and SDI out to a larger on set "Video Village monitor."

Is this too much to ask for?

I'm a big fan of SmallHD. Their monitors are rock solid, accurate and affordable. I have 3 of them (DP4, DP6, and AC7). If you're looking for a 7" screen you'd be looking at their AC7 line:

You can run them off their own battery or from DSLR batteries (Canon/Nikon mounts sold separately).

Two thumbs up for them.

Hi Warren. I just bought the Ikan D7W at NAB. Beautiful image, waveform and vectorscope. You might still be able to get an NAB discount.

Thanks for all the input. I'll actually be field testing a Swit 1701FE monitor next week. I don't know the company but they are sending out a test unit. I'll post back with a review.

Please report back. I've never heard of them and I'd be curious how the device performs.

Ryan,

I just received the monitor from Swit, this Friday - May 10. I'll put it through some test over the next week or so and then will write and post a review. So far the build seems quite good. I spoke to Swit Friday after it arrived and mentioned the comparison to the JVC monitors. I was told from the Swit rep that JVC's 7" & 9" monitors are made by Swit. The larger JVC monitors are not.

I look forward to seeing what you think. If possible, can you take some pictures and post them? I was at their website (which could use a serious revamp) looking through their lineup but didn't find a lot of pictures showing where the connections sit, mounting points, etc. It seems to offer several options for input and output (loop-through).

It looks to be a cost efficient monitor. I do wonder if you had a side-by-side of Marshall or SmallHD or Ikan how the Swit would stack up.

I appreciate the follow-up!

Thanks Warren. I saw your blog post go up and I've only been able to skim it. You pack a lot info in there and I haven't had the time yet to dig into it.

Seems like you liked it overall though. I appreciate the follow-up!
