    Aputure VS-1 reviews

    V-Screen VS-1 FineHD On-Location 7" LCD Monitor is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problems with v2.4 Firmware regarding 4K Input Only issue is when I try to input a 4k signal from my GH4. The monitor has a hard time with it, giving me an incredible amount of artifacts and distortion, especially if the image is dark. Easy fix is to have the camera downconvert the HDMI ouput image from 4k to 1080p. We'll see if this ever gets fixed in a future firmware update, or if this monitor just doesn't have what it takes to handle 4k. Other than that, I would recommend this as a low cost 7 monitor!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from awesome monitor but one flaw I purchased this monitor about 6 month ago, its my first monitor ive bought, i use it on my dji ronin m with a sony a6500. its a good monitor for the price but for some reason after for about a month the battery connection started to get loose and when im filming, the monitor likes to turn off. This is very frustrating when im trying to get a shot that i might only have one chance to get. mabe get fixed this problem in the vs-2 model of this monitor or the problem with this monitor is a first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for Buck By the best monitor out there plainly because of the display resolution and brightness. if you want a hdmi monitor under $500 this is it! buy something more expensive only if you have money to blow and dont care about value. I own the Atomos Shogun 4k recorder/monitor and it has same resolution ( better colors of course and much more accurate )

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best monitor for the price I use it with my a6300 and it work perfectly. The only problem that happen to me is the usb cable broke when i was using my cam with the dji ronin-m.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good resolution but glare on screen is harsh The resolution is very good on this monitor but be aware the the glare on the screen face is significant, especially outdoors and even with the hood attached. I'm going to try to add a non-glare film to the face and see if that solved the issue.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware of screen (glare) Only drawback is screen is very glarey. I'm going to try to apply a non-glare film.
