The Elvid FieldVision 7" On-Camera Monitor with Sony L & M Battery Plate and Charger is a 7" LCD monitor that you can attach to a DSLR or HD video camera via the 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole on the bottom of the monitor. It comes equipped with a Sony L & M type battery and charger. The field monitor features a native resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1440 scaling down the video to fit. With brightness levels of 250 cd/m2, a 500:1 contrast ratio and a wide off axis viewing angle this monitor is a useful tool when shooting video or stills, providing you with a larger image than your camera's built-in viewfinder or LCD screen.

The monitor provides dual composite video inputs and a single audio input, as well as HDMI and VGA (PC) connectivity. Special features include horizontal and vertical image flip, a rear speaker for audio monitoring, and auto aspect ratio detection. When using the HDMI or VGA inputs you can adjust the color temperature of the monitor's display. The monitor includes one Sony L & M type battery, a charger, an AC power supply, and a cigarette lighter power adapter. The battery plate is removable, and replacement battery plates are available so you can power your monitor with optional compatible batteries. The included accessory shoe to 1/4"-20 adapter allows you to mount the monitor directly to your camera's hot/cold shoe.

Monitor

The FieldVision monitor features a 7" LCD screen with 800 x 480 native resolution and supports standards up to 1920 x 1440, including 1920 x 1080, 720p and both NTSC and PAL.
The 500:1 contrast ratio and 250 nit maximum brightness make this a versatile monitor that works well in both dark and bright environments.
The wide viewing angle of the monitor allows you to see a clear image even when you are not directly in front of the monitor.
The monitor features an HDMI, a VGA, and two composite inputs with an audio input via the included A/V cable.
There are menu adjustments for volume, brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, color temperature (only when using the HDMI or VGA inputs), aspect ratio selection (4:3 and 16:9), and horizontal and vertical position adjustment. The monitor also features independent horizontal and vertical image flip, which allows you adjust the monitor to view the image correctly even if the monitor is upside down or you are seeing it in a mirror.
The color temperature settings are adjustable using presets of 9300K, 7500K, 6500K, as well as a user adjustable setting.
Volume up and down and monitor brightness are also directly controllable from via the front buttons without accessing the menu.
The built-in speaker allows you to easily monitor audio, so you can see and hear your shot when checking playback.
You can select from the following languages for the OSD. English, Simplified Chinese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Russian.

Battery

The monitor comes with an attached Sony L & M type plate to power the unit. It also includes a Sony L & M type battery and charger. You can purchase optional battery plates that will allow you to use select batteries to power your monitor. This is useful if you change your camera system and start using different batteries. By switching to an available compatible battery plate, you don't have to carry different kinds of batteries or buy a whole new monitor.

Accessories

An included accessory shoe to 1/4"-20 ball head adapter features 360 degrees of pan and 90 degree tilt adjustment and allows you to attach your monitor directly to your camera's accessory shoe.
You can use the included IR remote control to access and control the monitor's menu features.
The included cigarette lighter power adapter allows you to power your monitor from an automobile cigarette lighter socket, allowing you to conserve your Sony L & M type battery, while monitoring in a car. You can also power your monitor from available 12 V DC batteries that use cigarette lighter sockets.
The monitor can also be powered directly from the included AC power adapter.

        Comments about Elvid FieldVision 7" On-Camera Monitor with Sony L & M Battery Plate and Charger:

        I use this with my Sony FS100 and it gives a HUGE advantage in seeing the image my camera is producing over the 3.5" on-camera screen; however, although the quality of the picture (doesn't match color and contrast) is good, the monitor doesn't read metadata such as timecode or any other feature like peaking of zebra, etc. With that said the size of the monitor is perfect to bring with me on location without hassle and it sets up super easy. Overall, I got what I wanted and can see much better when framing and focusing shots.

            Comments about Elvid FieldVision 7" On-Camera Monitor with Sony L & M Battery Plate and Charger:

            Good bright screen, great kit with many parts for price. Used as location monitor for video camera. Works ok with articulated arm with clamp to tripod or mounted on top of camera. Do not recommend mounting on side of camera with arm unless stationary - due to weight.

            Battery does not stay locked in place well and tends to fall out very easily. Plan on adding Velcro strap for battery.

            Comments about Elvid FieldVision 7" On-Camera Monitor with Sony L & M Battery Plate and Charger:

            My requirement for a monitor was something easy to travel with; lightweight; clear resolution; and can accommodate a feed from any of the cameras I use.

            So 75% of those needs were fulfilled. Using the monitor is simple and straight forward. I get a clear picture under most circumstances. The picture when connected via HDMI is as clear as can be desired from a low cost system.

            One of my specific needs is to mount the monitor in a helicopter for the benefit of the pilot while shooting aerials of off-roasd racing cars. We do not have the benefit of high budget so shooting off the shoulder is the method. However I was disappointed to find that when taking a regular AV out feed from the camera, the image on the monitor was reduced to 2/3 of the screen size. This I understand is because the signal is basically a SD picture and when aspect ratio is corrected the result is a reduction in image size. It is still possible to work with it like this but it would be ideal if the screen could be filled end to end.
