    Saga SX7 7" High-Brightness 3G-SDI/HDMI Field Monitor with 3D-LUTs & Scopes is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Features Initially I bought the monitor for the high bright feature thinking it was a great price already.� But the waveform and 3D LUT feature really makes this monitor a great outdoor field monitor.� I can't emphasize enough how amazing it is being able to shoot in LOG, and preview the whole thing in my own LUT.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2000+ Nits, best 7" on the market Not many people are going to believe it, you're going to look at the SmallHD 702 or 703 monitors, but you're wasting your money in comparison. I'm a DP, never been a fan of SmallHD outside of their DP7.� I light with my Flanders DM170 when I'm on set, which has been calibrated at FotoKem, I'm a false color nut when it comes to checking exposures. I have a hard time being able to feel comfortable at my camera and see a lighting change and feel confident that I'm not going over or under in that choice.� I never liked what I saw out of the brightness in the field of all the 7" monitors on the market + the combination of the color of those monitors. This is the first monitor that I feel shares a similar color to my Flanders and that I can trust while I'm at the camera.� It's 2000+ nits in it's brightness and if you've seen the SmallHD 503 at 3000 nits at NAB, this monitor isn't far off. I'm not a huge fan of how false color works on 7" monitors, that's my only "minus" on this monitor, but it's values are in near increments of 10 IRE, which makes it easier to see, versus it usually being a wide range and difficult to see where I'm at.� It kind of reminds me of the Alexa false color values on the camera body, but with more options.� If it had a sliding scale for where you can put your 18% grey (skin tone value) like a Flanders monitor, I would be set.� On my Flanders I slide that 18% value within 10 IRE to areas that I know will tell me if I'm hitting skin exactly how I want it. My focus pullers love monitor too.� I've thrown it over to them a couple of times to see how they like it and the combination of the brightness and the peaking always seems to get them excited. I also love the ability to have a semi "quad split" where top left is the viewing monitor, to the right is RGB Parade, bottom right is waveform and bottom left is scopes and then I can even put audio meters on, which does read from the HDMI when I'm shooting with something like a Sony A7rII.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheaper and just as good as the SmallHD's I've recently purchase this monitor and took it for a spin last week and was very pleased with it's performance on set! Having the V-Lock plate directly attached to the monitor saves you the cost of buying an additional plate like you would have to with the SmallHD's. Plus having the option to use NP-F Sony batteries or cable out of a mini-XLR to D-Tap is super helpful having so many power options! And also something they do not mention on Ikan or BH is that there's two D-Tap outputs on the V-Lock plate! These plus any D-Tap outputs on your V-Lock battery save you need a splitter if you don't have one. Yes the menu system isn't as pretty as the SmallHD's, but this doesn't mean the SX7 is worse. It still has the same bells and whistles. Only downside is no Focus Assist (increased sharpness essentially). But I'm reaching out to Ikan to encourage them to include this in a firmware update. The LUT system also is not as easy and sexy as SmallHD's (particularly when it's SX7's scroll wheel VS SmallHD's joystick). But again if you set it up to one of the four Function Buttons then you'll be fine. On that note four function buttons is so easy!! Most other monitors either don't have any or have two. Having four makes it great! Only note I'd say to keep mind of is the four fans on the SX7. If you're using it in a bright exterior environment, the High brightness usually requires the fan. But I used it most of the day with Medium to High brightness with the fans turned off and the monitor didn't get hot. Being able to toggle them on/off is super helpful if you need to be quiet for Sound. Overall I'm very happy with this monitor!! :D I've paid less than half of what I would have had to if I got a SmallHD monitor, but I've gotten the same (if not more) features on this monitor. It's extremely solid and doesn't feel like it will break at all. I reckon Ikan has definitely entered the professional filmmaking monitor market with a competitive hit.
