The ikan VH8-DK-P Field Monitor Deluxe Kit includes the VH8 8" HDMI monitor with an HD panel, the BP5-P Panasonic DV battery plate, a Panasonic DV battery & charger, the SM201 shoe mount, an AC adapter, sun visor, and a hard metal carrying case.

Equipped with screen tally and HDMI loop-through, features such as RGB adjust, peaking, false color, DSLR scaling and clip guides, and a resolution of 1600 x 768, the VH8 monitor is well-suited for a variety of applications. The monitor also features monochrome and color peaking feature, which highlights the desired focus area in a bright, red outline.

The BP5-P Panasonic DV battery plate is compatible with any Panasonic-style D54 series battery.

The VH8 Monitor is equipped with the monochrome peaking feature, which highlights the desired focus area in a bright, red outline. The operator can adjust the focus control until the red indicator outlines on the desired area are razor sharp, indicating optimal focus. For best results, be sure that the subject is properly exposed.
False Color
The false color feature utilizes a full spectrum of assigned color indicators, ensuring shot exposure. The under / over luminance warning enables video professionals to get the quality they desire every time. By adjusting the camera's iris, the subject of the image changes color based on specific brightness values indicating optimal exposure.
DSLR Scaling
Enables to extend DSLR camera's HDMI video output to any of the 4 options: Normal, 3:2, 16:9, or Full Screen.
Movable Pixel-To-Pixel
1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping allows a video professional to view chosen elements in the shot. This feature is essential for seeing optimum detail.
Clip Guide
Offers adjustable upper clip guide levels to accurately display overexposed images in any shooting condition (Adjustable threshold similar to the zebra crossing function). The operator simply assigns the upper IRE as per preference and any exposure over the set IRE limit flashes in a vivid purple, indicating only the overexposed area.
Additional Features
Additional features include HUD for real time information, clip guide on-screen color chart, H / V-line field delay, pixel data analysis (IRE the color charts), Guides (4:3 & 16:9 framing safe area), and Check Field (blue, green, red, monochrome)

      Comments about ikan VH8-DK-P Field Monitor Deluxe Kit:

      everything is ok, except that the charger is kind of basic plastic and doesn´t fit the battery ok... a mess. Nice monitor, peaking, pixel to pixel... with the sun hood, is a must.
