ikan's VX7i Field Monitor Deluxe Kit with Sony L Type Battery Plate comes to you with a Sony L-series type plate, a Sony L-series type DV battery, a charger, a shoe mount, a power adapter, a metal case, and with the VX7i camera monitor.

The VX7i is similar to other 7" ikan monitors in all respects except one: the VX7i features a dual-sided tally system, with three indicators built into the rear chassis and with three functioning on-screen.

As an alternative to the included battery plate, the monitor optionally accepts V-mount and Anton Bauer pro battery plates via mounting holes on its rear panel.

Front panel controls include two assignable function buttons, input selection buttons, and knobs for aspect ratio, brightness, contrast, and chroma.

The screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800, which is higher than 720p, letting you see images in hi-res HD. The screen also features IPS (in-plane switching), which gives you a wide viewing angle of 170° by 170° and which also gives you a more accurate color rendition than any standard LCD monitor.
Dual Tally Systems
The monitor features front and back tally systems: three different colors on-screen, and three LED lights on the back of the panel. When the tally is connected, it lets the user know when they are recording or switched on-air.
Input / Output
A diverse set of connections: 3G-SDI, HDMI, Composite, and Component inputs and outputs. The Component and Composite ones are on BNC connectors.
The VX7i is equipped with both Monochrome and Color Peaking features, which highlight the desired focus area in a bright, RED outline. The operator adjusts the focus control until the RED indicator outlines on the desired area are razor sharp, indicating optimal focus. For best results, be sure the subject is properly exposed.
False Color
The False Color feature uses a full spectrum of assigned color indicators, ensuring flawless shot exposure. The under/ over luminance warning lets you get the quality you want every time. By adjusting the camera's iris, the subject of the image will change color based on specific brightness values indicating optimal exposure.
DSLR Scaling
The DSLR Scaling function enables you to extend your DSLR's HDMI output to any option of four display options: Normal, 3:2, 16:9 or Full Screen.
Movable Pixel-to-Pixel
1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping lets you choose an element in your shot and to zoom in on that element to see it in the resolution it was shot in.
Clip Guides
Offers adjustable upper Clip Guide levels to accurately display overexposed images in any shooting condition. You would simply assign the upper IRE to you preference and any exposure over the IRE limit will flash in a vivid purple, indicating only the over exposed area.
Support for Multiple Battery Solutions
Your VX7i comes with a Sony L-series battery plate, which accepts the included DV battery, but alternatively you can connect V-mount or Anton Bauer pro battery plates. The monitor features mounting holes for these.

      Comments about ikan VX7i Field Monitor Deluxe Kit with Sony L Type Battery Plate:

      Use in field recordings of HD video for professional use. Clients and crew are impressed by sharpness and image quality of the monitor. B&H did a good job of putting together the kit - only one drawback: the battery charger is a little wimpy, cheap, fragile. Other than that, this is a great monitor and kit.

          Comments about ikan VX7i Field Monitor Deluxe Kit with Sony L Type Battery Plate:

          I've only owned it about 3 weeks but have loved it so far. I definitely recommend buying it as a B&H kit because it comes with so many accessories you'll use and NOT have to purchase separately. The image is very sharp, compared to other field monitors I've used. And if you're conservative, the battery could last you an entire day of shooting -- didn't expect that. My only disappointment is NOT with the product itself but the fact the I have not been able to find a U-shaped bracket that will use the monitor's two SIDE mounting holes for support. It comes with a single swivel holder as for a cold shoe - but that seems a little flimsy to hold a monitor you're spending this much for. Wish someone would make a stronger bracket that uses the two holes on the side.
