Shooting in high glare situations can often make it difficult to see the image on your monitor, ikan's 7" High Brightness On-Camera LCD Monitor Version 2 is bright enough to view outside in direct sunlight without the flags or sun hoods to interfere with your operating the camera. It features a 1024 x 600 display capable of producing 1100 nit brightness, with an 800:1 contrast ratio with three manually switchable brightness levels, as well as an auto brightness feature that adjusts the monitor's screen depending on the ambient light.

The monitor accepts HD video signals via its 3G SDI or HDMI inputs and can also display 2K video signals. The monitor will also convert HDMI in to SDI out, so you can integrate your non-SDI camera into an SDI workflow. It has manual or auto image flip, so you can physically orient the monitor upside if you need, and flip the image to normal. The monitor's camera assist tools include scaling, peaking, false color, waveform, vectorscope, 1 to 1 movable pixel, and selectable frame guides. An audio input jack is available for separately connecting audio if your video is being input by Component or Composite. Four assignable buttons allow you to quickly navigate to often used menu setting pages. The monitor's built-in headphone jack, tally input, serial update ports, remote control ports, and a USB port for firmware updates, round out the monitor's features.

Lightweight Design, Aluminum Body
The MD-7 ver. 2 weighs three pounds and features a lightweight durable aluminum chassis.
The monitor features one 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole on the top and bottom and includes a 1/4"-20 to cold shoe ball adapter.
Flexible Battery System
The monitor incorporates a VESA mounting pattern that allows you to mount optional compatible battery plates.

Display Features

Peaking highlights the sharpest (most in focus) areas of the image with a color outline. The D7 features two modes, monochrome, and color. The monochrome mode shows the image in black and white with the red peaking outline and the color peaking mode shows the image in color with a red peaking outline. Both the peaking color and sensitivity can be adjusted in the monitor's menu system.
False Color
The False Color feature provides under/over luminance warning by presenting the image as a series of color values representing exposure.
Clip Guides (Exposure Y/C Range Check)
ikan's exclusive Adjustable Under Exposure and Over Exposed Warning feature is an extension of false color. It allows the operator to set the preferred IRE exposure limits and the operator is warned when the image exposure exceeds or falling under the preset IRE limit.
DSLR Scaling
The DSLR Scaling function enables users to expand their DSLR camera's HDMI video signal to fill the monitor's screen if they wish. Users may choose from one of four scaling options: Normal, 3:2, 16:9 or Full Screen - convenience made simple. This feature is only available when viewing images via the HDMI input.
Movable Pixel-to-Pixel
The D7's 1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping allows you to look at parts of your image without any scaling, so you can see the actual detail and not be fooled by scaling artifacts.
The monitor features useful user functions:
    • Check Field - The monitor's check field function allows you to select to view the image in either monochrome, or viewing only the blue, green, or red channel.
