        Comments about ikan MR7 7" Director's Monitor:

        I bought this monitor in part for its size and quality, but I was most excited about the recording capability, which opens up a whole new world of options after a shoot. I am thrilled with its performance so far. The monitor strikes a good (but not quite perfect) balance between portability and screen size. And the feature that allows recording onto SD cards is great for streamlining the screening and production process, especially when turnaround is quick or when your editor is off-site.
        The only downside: If the camera already has a monitor on top, this is a bit too much extra to haul around. And it's a lot of monitor for some of the smaller, newer cameras.
        Our setup ended up looking like a bit of an octopus with the monitor attached, so this is best for interviews and other static shoots but not especially convenient for on-the-go B-roll.
        Still, it's a keeper!

          Comments about ikan MR7 7" Director's Monitor:

          I have dealt with a lot of on board monitors in my time, but I have to say this one is special. I have recently bought this monitor and used on two different shoots thus far, and it is great! Not only is it a great on board monitor for your camera, but it is perfect for a director's monitor. It can record on to a SD card and have quick play back of what you just shot, but you get all the extra features of the waveform and vector scope! Get ready to say so long to the overly expensive video village and say hello to instant gratification.
