                Bought this monitor to use with my DSLR for video. It's a nice monitor at a decent price, but some instructions for adjusting some of the setting should be included by Ikan.

                    Comments about ikan VK7i 7" HDMI Monitor with Nikon EN-EL15 Type Battery Plate:

                    I immediately took the VK7i out for testing. The EN-EL15 Battery plate fit perfectly and an HDMI cable quickly connected the monitor to my camera. I Decided to use the mount at first and although it leaves a bit to be desired - there are arms out there for other purposes. If you just don't want to have to hold on to the monitor, the mount works perfectly.

                    As for the actual monitor - the function buttons were easy to use, find and turn on/off. I could quickly switch between 2-3 different modes I will be using, and the built in pixal zoom was fantastic. I was very impressed by my first use even though it was only on landscapes. Next up - old machines!

                      Works great with the Nikon D800 except that it drains the battery fairly quick. Make sure you buy additional batteries if you plan to shoot for long periods of time.
