Comments about Elvid FieldVision 7" On-Camera Monitor with Sony L & M Battery Plate and Charger:

My requirement for a monitor was something easy to travel with; lightweight; clear resolution; and can accommodate a feed from any of the cameras I use.

So 75% of those needs were fulfilled. Using the monitor is simple and straight forward. I get a clear picture under most circumstances. The picture when connected via HDMI is as clear as can be desired from a low cost system.

One of my specific needs is to mount the monitor in a helicopter for the benefit of the pilot while shooting aerials of off-roasd racing cars. We do not have the benefit of high budget so shooting off the shoulder is the method. However I was disappointed to find that when taking a regular AV out feed from the camera, the image on the monitor was reduced to 2/3 of the screen size. This I understand is because the signal is basically a SD picture and when aspect ratio is corrected the result is a reduction in image size. It is still possible to work with it like this but it would be ideal if the screen could be filled end to end.
