The ikan VL5 5" HDMI Field Monitor Kit with Sony L Series Type Battery Plate includes the VL5 monitor, a battery adapter plate for all Sony L Series type batteries, an AC power supply, shoe mount, sun visor, and sun hood.

The VL5 monitor features a 5" anti-glare display and an HDMI input. It has an 800 x 480 resolution, a 600:1 contrast ratio, 400 nit brightness, an LED backlight, and several shot analysis/adjustment tools. These include peaking, aspect ratio guides, switchable aspect ratio, RGB adjustability, blue gun, underscan, and DSLR Scaling. DSLR Scaling is particularly for those DSLRs that output an image onto only a portion of a screen. This feature enables blowing up the image on most or the entire screen when connected to such DSLRs as the 5D Mk II. Please note the minimum frame rate that the monitor supports is 25 fps.

The visor and sun hood work together. You can use only the visor if you want, or you can attach the sun hood right onto the visor to most completely block out sun light when shooting outdoors. Both are removable. The sun hood attaches to the visor by included touch fasteners.
