    Comments about ikan VK7i 7" HDMI Monitor with Sony BP-U Type Battery Plate:

    Used with Sony EX1 component in and SonyVG900 HDMI. Nice and lightweight, great resolution...only criticism so far is that the buttons are noisy for a quiet set, ie. a studio interview.

    Comments about ikan VK7i 7" HDMI Monitor with Sony BP-U Type Battery Plate:

    I use this product with both the Red scarlet and the Canon 5D.

    Pricure quality is great, it is very light wieght in comparison to others used before and the in out HDMI is very use full if you are recording to another device or back up.

    The only very slight anoyance is the time it takes to power up.
