        Comments about ikan VK7i 7" HDMI Monitor with Sony L Type Battery Plate:

        Used this on one job so far. Manual is a little light on info. Seems well made, nice size, not too heavy. Image is very nice. Controls were easy to figure out. Comes with a neoprene case, which specs don't list that its in the box. Sunhood is nice size. Haven't used it yet. One problem I see with the hood is that when it's in place, you can only use the bottom mounting hole.

                Comments about ikan VK7i 7" HDMI Monitor with Sony L Type Battery Plate:

                This monitor does not lock reliably with the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Cameras 30p HDMI output. The first package would lock, only if I first supplied an 1080i HDMI signal. I returned it. The second package would not lock at all.

                Sadly, it seemed it would be a great value for the price. I had to get a 7" Marshall instead, but I am very happy with the Marshall (but pricey).
