    Comments about ikan VL7 7" HDMI LCD Field Monitor w/ Canon 5D DV Battery Plate:

    I use this product as a field video tap for framing shots on Indie film shoots and documentary interviews. I like its portability and intuitive design and functionality. It is probably not the best tool for critical focus but ideal for framing those elegant cinema quality shots. You will not be disappointed with the image resolution or the pristine color imaging. Be careful when removing the HDMI cable. Yank on the cable as I did and you'll tear the HDMI input right out of the housing. The representatives at Ikan Corporation were extremely helpful with repairs and follow up.
