  • 7 Shutter Release Cables

The Elvid RigVision CM-7L 7" Field Monitor with Shutter Release is a slim, widescreen camera monitor with both video monitoring and photo shutter release functions. Seven shutter release cables are included for compatibility with a comprehensive range of cameras. Also included are an NP-F750 battery, charger, AC adapter, ball head for mounting a camera, a right-angled HDMI cable, an IR remote control, a sun shield, and a protective neoprene case. The remote is capable of adjusting settings, such as contrast, while a connected camera is recording. The sun shield is a fold-in/flip-up type -- it folds in to cover the screen when the monitor is not in use or for transport, and it robustly flips up by a spring mechanism to protect from bothersome light. It can also be removed entirely.

The monitor's resolution is 1024 x 600, and camera signals with up to 1920 x 1080 in resolution can be input. Connections consist of HDMI and Composite RCA inputs, an HDMI loop output, and a headphone jack for monitoring audio, and two speakers are built into the rear for monitoring audio without headphones.

For photo applications, a Shutter Release button on the front focuses in on a subject at half press and snaps a photo at full press. A Bulb Mode button keeps the shutter open as long as you need for long exposure shots. An Auto Focus button focuses automatically in photo mode and as well in video mode in cameras that support auto focus in video mode. And a Sleep button puts the monitor into Sleep Mode.

The included battery snaps in and a release switch keeps it securely locked in. The AC adapter can be connected to both power the monitor and charge an attached battery at the same time. A removable cable clamp on the back helps keep HDMI input and output cables from accidentally unplugging. The monitor features a 1/4" thread on its bottom for mounting without the included ball head.

      I replaced an inexpensive 7" TV/ VGA Monitor with the RigVision CM-7L 7" Field Monitor and I couldn't be more pleased! I often shoot weddings or special events with my video camera extended high on my tripod. With the Elvid RigVision I never miss the information that used to only show on my camera monitor screen - like am I recording?
      The Sony type NP battery lets me use the same type of batteries I use on my Sony Z5U video camera.
      My wife is now bugging me to try it with her Canon DSLR! I liked this monitor so much and the great service and reliability that B&H offers that I just ordered another from their "used" department!

      I bought this monitor for a quick video shoot I needed to do for a client while I was onsite shooting stills. All I wanted was a something for the clients to look at, and approve the shots. Schedule prevented me from trying it out before we left for the shoot, so my assistant and I spent an hour or so in the hotel room setting it up, and figuring out the best way to use it.I like the monitor, and it worked perfectly for what I needed. I was thinking I would probably just sell it once I was done with this shoot, but we'll be keeping it instead. Even though I rarely shoot video, there are certainly times when I have my tripod 12'-15' in the air, and it would be nice to have a second monitor for a client to be looking at.I would have given this product 4 stars, and quite possibly 5, but the instructions are horrible, and their website is nothing more than a landing page that says, "Full site coming soon." You'd think for a [$], they'd be a bit more forthcoming with the specifics.If you already know all the jargon, and everything there is to know about using monitors with your DLSR, I recommend this without reservation. If you're like me, and just doing a bit of video, and aren't really up to speed on it, go ahead and buy it. However, give yourself some extra time to learn it, and to dissipate the frustration before your clients show up.

          Comments about Elvid RigVision CM-7L 7" Field Monitor with Shutter Release:

          This monitor is a great upgrade from using my camera's tiny LCD screen. Clear, crisp picture and easy to use. My only con is that it's a little top heavy on the shoe mount, causing a bit of a wobble when panning or tilting.

            Comments about Elvid RigVision CM-7L 7" Field Monitor with Shutter Release:

            Very good image, clarity sharp, hood excellent protector.
            Two caveats. (1) When I plugged it in to my Canon XA20, it started to squeal with feedback from my audio-technica microphone. Searched every where in the monitor's menu and nothing to control the volume to turn it down or mute. Had to use the remote (which I did not have with me at the time). Very frustrating but once I had the remote I simply pressed mute button and it disappeared. (2) has a cable clasp on the back which I guess is nice to manage the cables however it really makes it wide and bulges in the really neat case that comes with it and I believe it will cause the case to wear prematurely since as I said it really bulges in one spot. Tried unscrewing it to remove it and it does not come off so while the monitor itself is thin, with this bulge it is anything but thin especially in the case and ought to wear the case. Not good planning.

                  FPV for DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter. Nice clear screen, multiple connection options. many features. A very important option, but not mentioned in description is ability to disable blue screen. This needs to be added into the description. Have not found anything I do not like about this monitor.

                  Just bought it for my 7D.. AFTER 2 DAYS STRUGGLING TO GET SIGNAL .. found out the HDMI cable that came with it wasn t working.. just bought new one and now works great.
                  Only did some test with it.. menu access is easy
                  Only downside , doesn t have the upside down mode.
                  This is a new brand, for looks promising.. whish their website was up as well.

                  I just wish that he had inpot of SDI port.

                  This thing is awesome. I bought it to use as a preview monitior for dvd playback at my theater. It works great, no more loading screens for me. i love the optional battery, but would have apprciated a rack mount option.

                            Comments about Elvid RigVision CM-7L 7" Field Monitor with Shutter Release:

                            I replaced an inexpensive 7" TV/ VGA Monitor with the RigVision CM-7L 7" Field Monitor and I couldn't be more pleased! I often shoot weddings or special events with my video camera extended high on my tripod. With the Elvid RigVision I never miss the information that used to only show on my camera monitor screen - like am I recording?
                            The Sony type NP battery lets me use the same type of batteries I use on my Sony Z5U video camera.
                            My wife is now bugging me to try it with her Canon DSLR! I liked this monitor so much and the great service and reliability that B&H offers that I just ordered another from their "used" department!
