Sony's CLM-FHD5 Clip-On 5" Full HD LCD On-Camera Monitor features a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 and an HDMI input to display the full HD signal out of your camera. The 5" screen is larger than the typical LCD screen of most DSLRs and camcorders and combined with the Full HD resolution, it provides a sharp image well suited for operating your camera. The monitor features an S-Log display function that lets you display an image recorded by your camera using S-Log to protect your highlights as if it had been captured with normal gamma. This can provide a more pleasing image to view, while the original footage is captured in S-Log.

Supporting W, M, and V-type batteries, the monitor is capable of long run times and can accept an optional AC power adapter. It features color peaking and focus magnification to aid in getting your shot in focus. It also features false color to aid in exposure. Two assignable front panel buttons allow you to customize your workflow. The included shoe mount and sun hood allow you to mount the monitor on your camera, and the sun hood protects that monitor from veiling glare.

Full HD 1920 x 1080 Resolution
The 5" Full HD 1920 x 1080 LCD monitor delivers a high-resolution image that your camera is not capable of displaying.
Focus Assist with Focus Magnification Function
Focus magnification function lets you enlarge an image to 3x or 6x magnification, making it easier to check and confirm your focus.
Focus Assist with Peaking Function
Focus peaking function assists you to get sharp focus quickly while manual focusing. It highlights the areas that are in sharpest focus in red, making it easier to see if your subject is in focus at a glance.
S-Log Disp. for Exposure and Contrast Control
S-Log shooting provides wider dynamic range for smooth gradations with reduced blown-out highlights and blocked-up shadows. This S-Log function displays images with the brightness and contrast close to how the images appear in regular shooting mode. This allows you to capture a flat S-log image while making it easier to control focus, contrast, and exposure using the LCD monitor. S-Log Disp. Assist Gain Adjustment is selectable in values of +2, +1, 0, -1, and -2.
False Color Function for Accurate Exposure Setting.
False Color display helps you set accurate exposure levels by converting brightness to numeric figures and displays those as colors. Red = 108% or more, Yellow = 100-108%, Pink = 61-65%, Green = 41-45%, Blue = 3-10%, Violet = 3% or less. Therefore, if you want to shoot a person's skin at 61 - 65%, adjust the exposure setting so that the skin appears as pink. This display does not affect the images the camera is shooting.
Video Level Marker
Video Level Marker uses color to help you achieve optimum exposure and skin tone according to your user-selected target video signal level. Chose from five video signal levels to highlight the area of your image in green that matches the level you select. The rest of your image will indicate over and underexposed areas with dark gray indicating lower video signal level (areas of lower exposure) and light gray indicates higher video signal level (areas of higher exposure). Blue indicates blocked-up shadows and red indicates blown-out highlights. For example, if you want to shoot your subject's skin at around 70% signal level, select 70% from the menu and adjust exposure setting so that the skin appears as green on the monitor. This display does not affect the images the camera is shooting.
Assignable Front Panel Buttons
Two customizable buttons allow you to assign frequently used functions to each: C1 and C2 buttons for fast access and easy operation.
Compatible with Multiple Camera Batteries
The monitor uses the same W, M and V batteries as cameras do, so you can use it for long periods of shooting without having to bring along different batteries. There's also an optional AC adaptor that's handy for long operating sessions without batteries. Various optional power sources: 1. AC adaptor AC-PW10AM / 2. NP-FW50 / 3. NP-FM500H / 4. NP-FV50 / 5. NP-FV70 / 6. NP-FV100A
LCD Hood and AR Coating
The CLM-FHD5 features a sturdy yet removable sun hood to shield the LCD from the sun and bright lights while shooting. The sun hood folds closed to protect your screen when not in use. The AR (anti-reflection) coating on the LCD helps minimize glare for improved image viewing quality.
Speaker
A built-in monaural speaker allows you to hear the audio, especially useful when checking your footage.
Connector Cover
The monitor's connectors are protected by a flap when not in use, which can help prevent dust build up.

question

I'm getting a Sony A7R 11, Can I transmit HDMI to this monitor and broadcast Wi-Fi to my I-Pad at the same time?
Asked by: Anonymous
I wish to substitute the CLM-FHD5 for any 7 monitor that has HDMI loop through. The LILLIPUT 663/S2 7 is one possibility. Run the HDMI to this on top of the a7R II then run HDMI to the Cube. That will broadcast in Wi-Fi so that the iPad can pick it up.

question

Will CLM-FHD5 work with the bmpcc? The previous model clm-v55 gave a input signal error at 29.97 and 30 fps.
Asked by: Anonymous
This unit is not tested with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, so it may encounter the same issues that the CLM-V55 did. We suggest monitors from Ikan and Marshall with the BMPCC, these will work very well. You just need to also purchase a Micro HDMI to HDMI cable to connect the camera to either monitor.

question

I can't seem to make this monitor mirror what is on the display on the back of my A7rii. For instance, when I record video, it only shows the camera's view of the video being recorded. What I want is for it to show the video along with all of the settings, audio levels, etc that are on the back of the camera. How do I do this?
Asked by: Joe V.
Have you found a Solution for this issue yet, Joe V? I'm planning to buy this monitor and I want to have the same menus show on the screen...

question

Can I mount this using my own 1/4-20 screw arm or do I have to use the built in shoe mount?
Asked by: Eric
It has the universal 1/4-20 screw hole on the bottom. The shoe mount is for those who only have that on their cameras.

I would like to buy/use the Sony CLM-FHD5 monitor ...

I would like to buy/use the Sony CLM-FHD5 monitor for astrophotography on my RX10 iii and RX100 m2. I would like to power the CLM-FHD5 with a 12vdc lithium battery pack. I need 6 hours run time. Is there an adapter which would connect to the CLM-FHD5 from the 12vdc battery pack?
Asked by: Larry
The CLM-FHD5 uses the lower capacity NP-FV battery system. We are not aware of longer lasting solutions for this monitor. My suggestion instead would be to look at a monitor like the Lilliput Q5, BH #LIQ5FHDMNTR, which uses higher capacity NP-F style batteries and we have a D-Tap cable for that will allow you to use even larger V-Mount or Gold Mount Solutions, BH #LIDTAPC20CM.
