The Sony CLM-V55 5" Camera Monitor / Battery / Charger Bundle Plus includes most everything that can be used to monitor a camera's recordings and to review them after the shoot. You get the CLM-V55 camera-top monitor and all the accessories normally included with the monitor -- a hood for blocking sunlight and other obstructive light, two shoe adapters to alternate between in mounting the monitor on a camera or on a rig in different configurations, and an HDMI cable to link the monitor and camera together. And as part of the "Bundle Plus," you get a battery and charger for power.

The monitor can be used for both video and photos, and with any camera that has an HDMI connection, so pretty-much with any camera. In addition to monitoring and reviewing, you'll also be able to better set up shots to begin with -- the monitor comes with a software feature called Peaking that has colorful precision tools for setting the focus for each shoot. For monitoring sound, a headphone jack on the monitor will let you plug in headphones and to listen in on a scene as you're recording it. A control dial will let you adjust volume, brightness, contrast, color, backlight, and aspect ratio, altogether letting you fine-tune the monitor to your preference for judging every shot before, during and after recording it. And the shoe adapters mentioned above will let you tilt the monitor forward and backward 90° and to rotate it 360°.

In all, the bundle is among the most inclusive and most affordable available on the market and will serve to let you set up shots, monitor their being recorded, and play them back afterwards, and on a display larger than that of the eye-piece or viewfinder of a camera.

          Comments about Sony CLM-V55 5" Camera Monitor / Battery / Charger Bundle Plus:

          Just started using this on the HDMI Feed off my XF300. Still futzing with the color temp menus, but I'm really just using this for framing in a very tight space, where I can't get behind the cam to view its LCD. Reasonably priced, Sony consumer-level construction, and well-accessorized (includes hood and shoe mounts). I'm thinking of getting another one for my 7D.
