VariZoom VZ-M5 overview

  • 1Description

The VZM5 Monitor Deluxe Kit from VariZoom features the VZM5 5" HDMI on-camera monitor and a variety of power and operation accessories.

The kit includes an L-Series battery plate and 6600mAh high-capacity L-Series battery, as well as a portable charger and an AC adapter for continuous in-studio power. Two HDMI cables are supplied along with two HDMI safety locks for securing the cables from accidental pullouts. A zoom button remote is also included that allows you to access Pixel-to-Pixel and Peaking modes remotely for more accurate focusing. You also get a sunhood for outdoor shots, swivel shoe camera mount, and a soft carrying case that will fit the monitor and many of the accessories.

The VZM5 is an easy-to-use monitor with an HDMI input and output. The monitor has a native resolution of 800 x 480 and supports input signals of up to Full HD 1080p, which get downscaled to 800 x 480. It has a sharp 800:1 contrast ratio and 500 cd/m² brightness. The brightness is high enough for confident monitoring in most outdoor scenarios when the sunhood is attached.

On the side of the monitor is a 3.5mm input jack built in to support the included zoom button remote control. This remote control can be attached on your tripod pan handle and pretty much anywhere else. One press of the "zoom" button on the remote control activates Pixel-to-Pixel mode on the monitor. This feature magnifies an area of the image and allows you to move to other areas so you can see the image in more detail for more accurate focusing. A second press of the zoom button takes you to Peaking mode where white outlines around objects in your image provide for additional focusing accuracy.

The VZM5 offers a headphone jack for audio monitoring, and has 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes on the top and bottom.

VariZoom VZ-M5 reviews

VZM5 Monitor Deluxe Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and easy. This little guy is a monster. I have yet to run out the battery that came with it on set. We have filmed several times with it now, and it just keeps on running. The HDMI cable that comes with it is too stiff for the Ronin, so if your getting it for that, get an extra thin cable to use instead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit Very nice unit with everything you need to plug and play. HDMI plug in works great with our Canon 5D Mark III.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 External monitor by Varizoom I'm using the 5 external Varizoom monitor and it seems to be a stout convenient little package that I purchased. I picked up their complete monitor kit that came with a durable battery, case, zoom remote, screen shade and I optionally purchased the molded monitor rubber bumper protector. I'm using this monitor with my (GoProHero3 modified with Back-bone Ribcage), I've got the monitor currently attached to my 7 articulating arm threaded with X20 secured to my cameras cage and the arm supports the weight perfectly. I enjoy the zoom feature that this monitor has, perfect for my manual focus lens that I'm using. I also purchased this monitor because it sports both input and output video feed which aids being able to use the monitor and my LED TV at the same time via HDMI cables. I used the monitor outdoors in bright sun light with impressed results. The battery is very big and extends off the back of the monitor by over a 2.5 inches, it would be better to have a battery with a thinner profile but then again it's nice having a battery that has longer run times too. I've used it for only a couple of weeks now so I can't give much input as far as durability but I'm confident that I purchased the correct product. This kit cost a little more but I think that it was bang for my buck!
