ikan VH8 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes the ikan VH8 8" HDMI Monitor with LP-E6 Type Battery Plate. The VH8 features 1600 x 768 HD resolution, 300 cd/m² brightness level, and 400:1 contrast ratio for a crisp image. The monitor is about half an inch thick and weighs just over half a pound, making it a very slim and lightweight monitor to attach atop your camera. The monitor supports SD and HD resolutions, and incorporates a loop-through HDMI in/out and composite input. The monitor features useful production display modes such as peaking, false color, and clip guides. A 1:1 pixel-for-pixel viewing mode allows you to view your image without scaling, thereby removing any scaling artifacts.

The monitor also features four selectable modes to scale DSLR video from the HDMI input for viewing. Four assignable buttons let you customize your workflow with the monitor's menu system. The VH8 also features an interchangeable battery plate that is compatible with Canon LP-E6 type batteries.

  • ikan VH8 8" Camera Monitor with Canon E6 Battery Plate

    The ikan VH8 8" Camera Monitor with Canon E6 Battery Plate is 1/2-inch thick and weighs a 1/2-pound. At the same time, it's 8 inches wide. You get a wide monitor that is very slim and lightweight to attach atop your camera. The screen itself is about 7 inches and delivers a 1600 x 768 HD resolution.

    The monitor has all the common software features for fine-tuning focus, exposure and other details, and it has four assignable function buttons for programming your most commonly used of these features. All the monitor's buttons are away from screen view, with the four assignable buttons located at the top of the back panel, and with three more not far away. These three control the monitor's menu and select between the monitor's inputs, HDMI and Composite.

    The monitor comes with a Canon E6 battery plate, which is optionally interchangeable for a different plate. Slim, wide, and feature-rich, the VH8 is a great tool for precision shooting, whether in videography or filmmaking.

    False Color
    The False Color feature utilizes a full spectrum of assigned color indicators, ensuring flawless shot exposure. The under/ over luminance warning enables the video professional to get the quality he/ she desires every time. By adjusting the camera's Iris, the subject of the image will change color based on specific brightness values indicating optimal exposure.
    DSLR Scaling
    The DSLR Scaling function enables users to extend their DSLR camera's HDMI video output to any option of four: Normal, 3:2, 16:9 or Full Screen - convenience made simple.
    Movable Pixel-to-Pixel
    The VH8's 1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping allows the video professional to emphasize on individual chosen elements in the shot. This feature is essential for capturing optimum detail.
    Clip Guides
    The VH8 offers adjustable upper Clip Guide levels to accurately display overexposed images in any shooting condition. The operator simply assigns the upper IRE to their preference and any exposure over the set IRE limit will flash in a vivid purple, indicating only the over exposed area.
