ikan S7H overview

  • 1Description

The ikan Saga 7" High-Brightness On-Camera Monitor is a great addition to your DSLR, mirrorless, or cinema camera rig. Its slim profile is lightweight, and the internal processing allows for the Saga to display UHD and DCI 4K input signals from HDMI, as well as professional HD or SD signals over SDI. The panel used in this monitor is a 700 cd/m²-bright IPS LCD, which is viewable outdoors. While the screen is natively 1920 x 1200 in resolution, using the 1:1 pixel mapping allows you to achieve sharp focus, even with 4K video. Both the SDI and HDMI inputs can be looped through respective outputs (no cross conversion) to connect other monitoring or recording equipment. A headphone jack comes in handy with cameras that don't allow you to monitor audio through an output.

If you use Canon DSLR cameras, you can use your already accessible LP-E6 batteries. Since there are two battery plates, you can continuously power the monitor by hot-swapping discharged batteries for fresh ones as they empty. If you use professional batteries, a D-Tap power cable is included. Also included are an articulated shoe mount and a neoprene carry pouch for when the monitor is not in use.

Monitoring Tools

Focus Peaking
Check your focus by activating focus peaking. The image displayed will switch to monochrome for greater contrast, and a red highlight will display over high-contrast lines, delineating what's in focus.
Using the built-in waveform analyzer, you can accurately gauge exposure across the frame. The waveform will immediately point out which parts of the image are correctly exposed, overexposed, underexposed, or clipping in the highlights or the shadows.
Pixel-to-Pixel (1:1) Mapping
Engaging pixel-to-pixel mapping turns off the internal scaling of the monitor, so you can check for critical focus. The area that's being viewed can be moved to focus on a different part of the image.
DSLR Scaling
The DSLR Scaling function enables users to extend their DSLR camera's HDMI video output to any of four options: Normal, 3:2, 16:9, and Full Screen.
Underscan constrains the size of your image so the monitor shows everything the camera is seeing.

    ikan S7H reviews

    Saga 7" High-Brightness On-Camera Monitor is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin, Lightweight, Bright, Easy to use, Value I am a run/gun shooter and love traveling lightweight but with good quality gear. I have tried several field/client monitors and this one best fits my needs. The high bright signal is fantastic and easy to see even in full sun. It's also full-featured for an affordable price. It has Waveform, Histogram, False Color, Peaking, Audio Meters, Zooming, Crosshair, Grids and more. It's easy to configure and setup. My clients love this monitor and often ask if I'm bringing it on set. I have used this for fashion event interviews, TV show interviews and commercial filming for TV spots. I like the option to be either battery powered or run on plug-in power (when purchasing the kit). Overall, great monitor with more than enough features for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Died after 3 months of light use A good, lightweight monitor overall. Unfortunatenly��It turned off while being used on Ronin setup and doesn't turn on ever since. The green LED is on when I toggle the on\off button but the screen is still dead. It happened right in the middle of shooting process. Disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great High Bright Monitor! The Ikan Saga monitor has worked great for me. The screen is definitely bright enough for outdoor use. Even though its not the brightest monitor in the market it makes up for it with a good price and a slim and lightweight form factor. I am happy with my purchase.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Built well The image is bright and sharp but this monitor is not built well. 3 of the 4 screw mount holes are loose in the housing. The bezel of the display is cracked in multiple locations. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low quality build, great image The front plastic bezel is cracking in a couple spots. It's never been dropped. The lcd has a discolored corner at least an inch in diameter. I have had this monitor about 4 months and taken it out maybe 3 times. In the future I would maybe spend a little more and get something with better build quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great in sunlight! I used this monitor in direct sunlight during a hectic shoot recently and looking back, I didn't have one issue seeing my composition! It worked really well, looked great. It's a super simple setup and has great features

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor! This monitor is a great value. It's definitely brighter than my old monitor and clearly visible outdoors. The included waveform feature is really helpful as well especially when outdoors.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Build Quality I've had this for exactly one year. The image is nice but every mount on all 4 sides is broken. The monitor is useless unless you hold it in your hands.
