The Marshall Electronics V-LCD56MD 5.6" HDMI On-Camera Monitor is a 1280 x 800 high-resolution camera-top panel, equipped with IPS technology and an adjustable LED backlight, featuring 300 nit brightness, a 500:1 contrast, an icon-driven operating system, and advanced versions of many familiar features, (and a not-so-familiar feature: DSLR Ratio Adjustment).

Connections are on the rear panel and consist of an HDMI input and an HDMI output (and a micro USB port), with the input giving you 8 channels of de-embedded stereo audio. You can monitor the audio on-screen on a dual-bar Waveform display and with headphones via a stereo headphone output. The front panel has 14 buttons four of which are user configurable with 32 possible uses. For mounting, a 1/4"-20 screw-hole is available on every side of the monitor.

A polycarbonate coating protects the screen from scratches; a power supply comes included; and many different battery adapters are compatible with the monitor so you can work with most of the common batteries out there. (Please see specs for battery compatibility.)

DSLR Ratio Adjustment
Lets you scale video that does not completely fill the monitor's screen when connected by HDMI in "Record" mode on certain Canon DSLRs. You can scale DSLR video output, fill the screen, and eliminate black pillar bars with a variety of options to choose select, from Normal, to 3:2, 16:9, and Full Screen. DSLR Ratio Adjustment is programmable to one of the four user-configurable buttons on the front panel.
Waveform and Audio
The LCD56MD incorporates both a Waveform display and Stereo Audio bars. These may be displayed separately or together in any one of the four corners of the monitor. The Stereo Audio is de-embedded from either the input.
Zebra Clip Guide
The Zebra function visually filters parts of images under a Lower Threshold or over an Upper Threshold. Data on either side of the filters can be displayed with a custom color. Zebra can also be inverted to filter the area between the Upper and Lower Threshold. The color selected for the Lower Threshold acts as the color for all inverted Zebra data.
Input Crop with Auto Scaling
The Input Crop function selects the area of active video that you would like shown on the image display. Select the desired Input by accessing the Adjust option on the screen.
Custom Pixel-to-Pixel Panning
Lets you select a custom Pixel-to-Pixel zone and use the COLOR knob to move your selection LEFT and RIGHT and the CONTRAST knob to move UP or DOWN. The SELECT button locks in your selection.
False Color
Helps set camera exposure. As the camera Iris is adjusted, elements of the image will change color based on the luminance or brightness values.
Peaking
Helps get the sharpest possible picture. When activated, the internal processor will display a colored highlight on the screen where sharp edges appear. When the camera operator adjusts ("racks") the focus control / camera lens, different parts of the image will have these colored highlights. This indicates that this portion of the image is sharp or in focus. Final focus is achieved by racking the camera lens focus control back and forth until the desired portion of the image has the colored highlights.
Adjustable Screen Markers
A variety of screen markers in 4:3, 16:9, and full screen modes allow accurate monitoring of the different aspect ratios used in broadcast environments. User Markers allow for custom aspect ratio, cropping framing, now with a choice of four colors and variable width lines.
6 Custom Configuration Presets
Six User Setting Presets allow the user to save six system configuration files for later recall when needed. These configuration files will save 38 different parameters that can be adjusted by the user.
User-Definable Function Buttons
Four user-definable function buttons on the front-panel allow quick access to numerous settings and features including focus-assist, false color filter, aspect ratio, screen markers, monochrome mode, color temperature, delay mode, and more.

        I needed a monitor that would help with focus. The peaking works well and the ability to adjust it and the higher resolution make this work much better than the LCD51.

            I purchased the V-LCD56MD for my DSLR camera rig on various applications. I'm very happy with this unit, as it's light, compact, and provides me with an excellent picture. I ordered it from B&H, and it was delivered on time and without hassle. As of now, I have no negative things to say, it works perfect for my applications.

              i run and gun with very shallow focus. i use the peaking on my camera to help with focus but it's not enough. adding this monitor to my rig has made a substantial improvement in my final product. it's so sharp i don't use the peaking b/c it's distracting.

              Great monitor, perfect for my Canon 7D.

              Definable function buttons on the front-panel is very easy to use and the menu is intuitive.

              I like high resolution 1280 x 800 panel, the screen protection, custom Ratio Adjustment, pixel-to-pixel mode, and Adjustable Screen Markers for my projects in 2.35:1 (for exemple)

                  I'm very happy with this monitor. Excellent quality, beautiful colors, crisp blacks, light weight and plenty of options for my Canon 5D Mark III. The four user settings come in handy when lighting becomes a pain. This monitor is always with me whether I'm shooting a commercial or a wedding video. Two thumbs up!
