      I have only had the opportunity to use this HD, 7" LCD, HDMi monitor in a theatre setting in the dark but I found it to be extremely clear with great resolution for accurate focus. With a very simple menu for easy navigation it also has a one button brightness adjustment with 5 settings that I found quite useful for monitoring the exposure and the need to be precise when a stage production is using spotlights causing hotspots. Last, the battery provided lasted throughout the whole 2 hour performance and did not need to use the 2nd backup battery I had ready which tells me it is quite efficient in power consumption for such a bright monitor. Great piece of equipment. Reasonable pricing. It has my stamp of approval.

      Really cheap quality, but it serves its purpose. I've almost stripped the plastic threads on the bottom of the monitor already. I'm not pleased about that. But a field monitor is a must have and this is a one of the cheaper ones you can buy. That said, it does come with a lot of really useful accessories.

        I shoot a lot of athletic events and business presentations. In ease case, the monitor has made composition easier and there is less strain that comes from using a smaller LCD or the eyepiece.

        It has fulfilled my requirements and it performs above expectations. Add the low price and you have a great deal.

          I needed a larger screen for framing and focus on a smaller camera that I use for b-roll shots on a weekly broadcast program that I produce. Easy hook up and set up, everything worked correctly right out of the box.

            I use this monitor on my canon 7D and it has been a great help. On the 7D the LCD is built in, stationary and just not big enough, so i decided to purchase this to get a more precise focus during filming and to mount the monitor in a more convenient location to make it easier to see what i was filming while i was filming it. This comes with a battery and a plethora of power alternatives to plug directly into the wall or cigarette lighter as well as a car charger for the battery. This is completely ready for use with no additional purchases and is extremely effective, especially for its reasonably low price.

                Comments about Marshall Electronics M-CT7 7" Camera Top Monitor with Canon BP511 Plate/Battery/Charger:

                I'm using this as a remote monitor for my GPS-Radar-Sonar display for the inside helm station on my boat. I needed a small VGA monitor with 800x600 display to match my system video output. Its auto-adjust feature matched to my system perfectly. Was nearly plug and play. Adjusting the color temperature to a custom USER setting and the saturation allowed a good match to the colors on the main display. Although this is not the intended application for this display, it works perfectly and has a clear/sharp image. It's light weight and the variety of inputs (VGA, HDMI and composite) were also a plus. A sun hood is helpful for full sunlight, but otherwise the display is readable and adequately bright. Before I purchased, I had a voltage question for Marshall Tech Support. They responded by email the next day in a very thorough and professional manner.

                    This monitor has helped me when shooting with my camera on a tripod with a long telephoto lens. Often I shoot using manual focusing, and the enlarged view with this monitor helps me "nail" the focus. It's large and a tripod is needed. You wouldn't want to use this without one.
