Questions? Ask our experts:

The Delvcam Camera-Top 7" HDMI LCD Monitor is great in that it's more on the affordable side and yet has a screen size that's among the larger sizes available, it's not absent of focus and exposure-assist features, it comes with useful accessories including a folding sunshade hood, and it impressively has an 800:1 contrast ratio, meaning blacker blacks and so sharper colors.

It powers by battery or by power supply. The power supply is included and so is a battery plate for a battery, but a battery is sold separately. The plate is a Sony-type F970, and the battery for it must be a likewise Sony-type F970 or similar Sony batteries. And if you want, you can optionally use other battery plates, for Panasonic and for Hitachi-type batteries.

The monitor's connections consist of an HDMI input and an HDMI output. The input is for connecting your camera signal into, and the output offers a few possible uses, the most beneficial of which is passing the camera signal to additionally another HDMI monitor, whether another small one or a large-screen one. HDMI cables stretch as far as about 10 feet, so you can position the second monitor a bit away from you, perhaps for someone else to watch as you're shooting (if you can't get rid of such a someone).

For attaching onto your camera, the monitor has a total of three 1/4"-20 screw-holes and comes with a hot-shoe swivel adapter that on one end will connect into one of the screw-holes and on the other end to the camera, connecting thus the monitor and camera together and providing you with a means to swivel the monitor atop the camera, to position it where best you want. The monitor also has VESA mount holes on its rear. These afford you with even more positioning options.

The focus and exposure-assist features mentioned above are only some of the image control features available on the monitor. The entire set consists of Peaking, Exposure, False Color, Histogram, Aspect Ratio, Color Bar, Underscan, H/V Delay, Freeze Input, Center Marker, Screen Marker, Pixel-to-Pixel, and DSLR Ratio Adjustment. Pixel-to-Pixel will let you select a portion of a shot and see it enlarged in a resolution much higher than the monitor's native resolution, so to help you judge the shot better. The monitor's resolution is 1024 x 600, and Pixel-to-Pixel displays in 1920 x 1080 HD. DSLR Ratio Adjustment is for use with select Canon DSLRs. What it does is scale video that doesn't completely fit the monitor's screen when in Record mode.

    We're a small market TV station and we produce lots of commercials in all sorts of locations and conditions. We shoot on a Panasonic AG-HPX250P and a Canon 5D. We have a jib, dolly track and a Glide Cam available in addition to a tripod. Our typical crew is 2 guys and for a big shoot, 3. Before we bought the Delvcam 7" HMDI LCD monitor we had to rely on the camera viewfinders exclusively, including playback for client. Our jib shots were especially tricky to monitor! The Delvcam has been a great addition to our production package. We considered several other lower priced monitors but in the end decided to push on our GM to approve the almost $[$] purchase, the unit doesn't come with a battery which added about $90 to the price.The 7" screen looks huge! Its bright, and really crisp, thanks to its true HD resolution, and 800:1 contrast ratio. The snap-on hood is a real benefit, it opens easily, stays in place on the monitor and folds flat for storage.The unit also has lots of features one would only expect to find on a full size monitor: Horizontal/Vertical delay, histogram, peaking, color bars/ exposure and more.I'll admit I had some trouble the first time I plugged in to the 5D,but a call to the manufacturer got me quickly straightened out. Operator error! The monitor has a single button to switch it over for the 5D signal, and the pixel-to-pixel setting resizes the image to fit center screen, though I find that I see the full video frame without having to use that function.The unit works great with the 250, just plug and play. We changed our camera settings so that we can see the full camera function display on the monitor.To sum up, great picture, lots of control, easy to use, mounts easily on a camera or light stand with a Lowell "Tota-tilter" or other similar mount. The only drawback, it doesn't come with a carrying case and it has lots of pieces. We found a nice padded nylon pouch to carry ours in, that's something you'll want to think about. But this is a great piece of gear when you're moving fast from location to location or even in the studio.And by the way, our clients LOVE IT, too.

    I bought this product to attach to my canon 70D DSLR. There are many models of field monitors. This is not the cheapest option, but having a headphone output, I I have chosen it cuase I was solving the problem of wathcing in 7 inches monitor and monitoring audio at the same time (remember that 70D has no headphones intput, and there is no Magic Lantern for this model).
    Well, now I tested and this Delvcam LCD Monitor does not allow to hear while recording, only in playback mode. So it's totally useless the headphone input.
    Beyond that, it look good. It doesn't crop like other cheaper model, so its ok.
    The attach system looks weak, so I recomend to work always on a tripod. If you are trying to take the camera on hands it will not be very practical.
    Just one more thing. In my case, the 70D has a touch screen with focus capability that you loose using the Delvcam monitor, because one plugged the camera monitor turns off.
    If I could I would return it to store, but I'm far from USA, so I have to resale it.

      Comments about Delvcam Camera-Top 7" HDMI LCD Monitor:

      Use on-camcorder since the built-in LCD screen is too small. Navigation options not very intuitive, but after getting used to them, they are OK. Included hood is a nice touch. Included accessory shoe adapted is great. The Sony FP battery bay works well with the collection of batteries I have. Use with HDR-FX1, HDR-AX2000 and NEX-EA50UH.

              Great monitor for the price. I wish the battery plate would stay in place, but that's a minor inconvenience.

              I use this to better judge framing and focus on my with my camera (non-dslr), and for that purpose, it does it's job.

              This would not be a good replacement if you need pixel perfect resolution or accurate color reproduction, but if you needed that, you would be willing to spend more money.

                Comments about Delvcam Camera-Top 7" HDMI LCD Monitor:

                First off, what a pleasure to have a larger monitor to focus and frame with. I connect this monitor to my Panasonic AC90 and find the ability to achieve sharper focus is greatly enhanced. My AC90 LCD is great but just too small, and this Delvcam makes all the difference.The image quality is sharp and clear. For the price point, the features are pretty good, but this is a low/mid level monitor and you don't get all the pro features one may want or need. I like that I can push my camera OSD to the monitor (or not), and have the ability to add a center marker or adjustable safe area.I found it a bit tough getting the colors to match between the monitor and the built in LCD. One thing I did notice is that manually white balancing seemed to make a bigger difference to the Delvcam than to the built in LCD. This seemed odd, but once I got the monitors calibrated, all was fine. I'd highly recommend sending SMPTE color bars to the monitor to get a solid match.The included hood is useful and feels sturdy. The four function keys are handy and I like the histogram function. I found the front panel buttons often needed more than one press (had to press twice to get the button to respond), which is a bit of a hassle, but those buttons are mostly for setup. Maybe they just need to be broken in. I consider this a minor issue.Overall I'm really happy with this Delvcam 7" and find the sharpness to be superior to the similarly priced Marshall monitor (which I have used). For a mid budget monitor with great quality and features, go for it.

                I purchased this 6 months ago and gave it a good amount of time to get used to it, but still can't. I am very frustrated by the big lag time on start up and no matter what I do I can not adjust the colors to be accurate so that I can make adjustments to the white balance of the camera (5d mk iii). This makes this product unusable to me. Also it becomes very heavy when you put one of those F970 batteries. The crop is also very unusual when you use on camera info. It is extremely difficult to work on sunny days even though the hood is always on. I wouldn't recommend this lcd to a serious shooter.

The monitor is everything I had hoped for with no real negatives. Sometimes my camera (Sony a7) does not recognize the monitor but I really feel like this more of a camera issue.

                  I use this monitor for my Nikon D3100. I was sick and tired of losing so much footage due to focus and knew I'd have to have a larger monitor as I could not see the little built in one on the camera. I did a lot of comparing and made a few phone calls, before deciding on this monitor. This product has the features I needed; sun shade, peaking, pixel-to-pixel, false colors, HDMI in and out. I can do a lot with this monitor and my footage is now crystal clear.The only down side is that it is heavy and the battery only makes it worse, you really have to tighten the ball screw hard so it does not slip and tilt. It could also come with better instructions on how to use the features, but a little playing around with things and I think I got it.

                    I use this as a field monitor with a BMPCC and it is indispensable. Bright and with lots of useful features. A bit slow to show the image, but rock solid once it is up and running. Doesn't play as nice with my Nikon, it doesn't scale the image well, hence the 4 stars.

                      Nice lightweight, good resolution, and decent image and features. Seems one of the best at this low a price.

                        Love this monitor. I recently used it in a bright daylight video shoot and could see very clearly. Battery lasted about 6 hours. Light weight. Colors seem to be very acurate to what I see in post production. Very happy with the purchase.

                          Although this is my first camera-top monitor and I don't have other experience, this monitor is really great. I especially like the battery-mount and the fact that it can be powered by a very standard and big battery. NP-F970 is the one I am using.

                            This monitor is a great little unit offering a vast amount of useful features for the price. I like the peaking and histogram feature that is available with the relatively high resolution monitor for the price. We use it in conjunction with our Nikon d600's and a Sony EA-50UH and it works great.

                                I did a lot of research and finally settled on this guy. Great price and great size. I'm shooting with the 5D Mark III. Sometimes it was a challenge to make sure I was in focus while using the camera screen. This monitor has made it so much easier to focus. My only complaint is the hot shoe mount is kind of cheap. The monitor has fallen off of the hot shoe screws several times. I'm going to get a different one. Other than that..... Great deal!

                                  Excellent product if you take the time to calibrate it to your computer monitor so that what you see on the screen is what you get when you import your footage or pictures.

                                  The only thing I don't like about the monitor is that the 'color bars' are not a real full set of color bars for calibration usage.

                                  Other than that the product is very useful and for me it's worth the expense.

                                      Monitor i ok, good pic, but the Swivel Adapter is to weak.
                                      I must buy an another Swivel Adapter to get a stabile mounting.
