    Comments about ikan VL5 5" HDMI Field Monitor Kit with Sony L Type Battery Plate:

    I got this so I would have a bigger monitor for my Panasonic AG-HMC40 and this fits the bill. It's big enough that I can get a good look at what I'm filming but small enough that it is easy to mount on the camera, light and can be used even while filming handheld. Great price for what you get.

      Comments about ikan VL5 5" HDMI Field Monitor Kit with Sony L Type Battery Plate:

      I use it with a Panasonic HDC HS900 and a home made jib boom. I tried a small hd-led tv but at 17' it was too bulky and needed 120ac. The only cons are that it was hard to mount the battery plate, it was not a perfect fit. I had to scrape a tiny bit of plastic tab away, but then it locked in perfect. Other con is that it does not charge the battery when plugged in.

      Comments about ikan VL5 5" HDMI Field Monitor Kit with Sony L Type Battery Plate:

      It's great to check tat you are in focus all the time. It's better when you use is with the follow focus. Also It allows you to see what you are shooting form different angles.

      The Cover that comes with the monitor doesn't fit quite well. and it feels very delicate, I can't just put it in the bag with all my gear.
