Software Features
These help tune focus and exposure prior to shooting.

Peaking
Highlights the desired focus area in a red outline. As you adjust the focus control, the red outline gets sharper and sharper, until razor sharp, to indicate better and better focus.

False Color
Uses many colors to ensure proper exposure. These colors change at the adjustment of the camera's iris. Under- and Over-Luminance warnings indicate when exposure is out of range.

Movable Pixel-to-Pixel
Displays in full screen a portion of an image in the native resolution of the image, even if the native resolution is bigger than the monitor's. And you can move to other portions. Pixel-to-Pixel helps better analyze an image by letting you see it in top resolution.

Clip Guides
Lets you assign exposure limits. If you go above the limit, a vivid color will flash.

DSLR Scaling
Outputs an HDMI camera signal in your choice of four aspect ratios: Normal, 3:2, 16:9 or Full Screen.

      Comments about ikan VH8 Field Monitor Deluxe Kit with Sony L Type Battery:

      We use this monitor in two scenarios: 1) It works great on our CobraCrane, mounted directly above the tripod, for monitoring the crane shot. 2) We also mount it directly on top of our NEX-EA50U camera for monitoring on both tripod and handheld recording.

      The kit provides everything you need short of your connection cables. Perfect case, good battery, chargers, etc. The kit is very complete.

      I'm giving the product 5-stars for value and overall performance. I will caution, however, that I have not determined a shoe mount method that doesn't leave the connection to the camera feeling delicate - handle with care. But I'm sure there is a better way to shoe-mount this and I just need to investigate this further.
