Hands-On Review: ikan Field Monitors VK7i and VX7i

ikan has recently released updated versions of their VK7 and VX7 field monitors. The new VK7i and VX7i monitors feature 7” IPS LCD screens with higher native resolution, wider viewing angles and more accurate color rendition versus the older models.

Hands-On Review: Ikan D Series Monitor

ikan's new D-series monitors include the D5, the D5w, the D7 and the D7w. The D5 and the D7 feature either a 5.6- or 7-inch IPS LCD display with 1280 x 800 resolution. The “w” tacked onto the D5w and the D7w models denotes the addition of built-in waveform, vectorscope and RGB parade. These LCD panels benefit from In-Plane Switching technology, which enables improved viewing angles and color rendition.

Pro Video Gift Accessories

Professional video certainly isn’t what it was at the dawn of the Betacam era, or even what it was 10 years ago, and overall that’s for the best—your current camera options are smaller and less expensive, and they produce higher-quality images. 

On-Camera Monitors

Some accessories in video production and HDSLR filmmaking are so essential that they transcend being just add-on gear, and become part of the camera system itself. One such item is an on-camera monitor. Sometimes referred to as a “video-assist monitor,” they’re used to help the camera operator (or assistant) focus the camera.

Marshall 7-Inch High-Resolution Field Monitor

The monitors built into digital cameras and camcorders have been improved dramatically. Some are now more than three inches in size. But that’s still too small for most professionals, so they use camera-top field monitors to judge the quality of high-resolution digital stills and HD video. The Marshall V-LCD70XP-HDMIPT is a 7-inch field monitor loaded with new features such as HDMI Loop-Through and DSLR Ratio Adjustment.

Field Monitors for Video & Still Cameras

Camcorders and a growing number of DSLRs feature LCDs that swivel and/or tilt to better enable image composition from less-than-ideal camera angles. Swivel-based LCDs, especially larger LCDs, can prove to be especially handy when you have to compose photos from a distance.
