Desview S5 Overview

The Desview S5 is a compact and highly lightweight on-camera monitor featuring a 1920 x 1080 screen resolution and supporting up to DCI 4K HDMI signals. Its small size makes it a convenient on-camera option as well as a suitable complement to handheld gimbals. The S5 is designed with what Desview calls "OCR" (Optical Clear Resin) screen technology, which is a type of screen bonding that allows the monitor to have thinner bezels and hence more room to display an image.

In addition to helping you frame and monitor your shots, the S5 also offers a store of monitoring functions for setting up your shot with the proper focus and other factors. Included among these are Histogram, Zebra, Peaking, False Colors, Pixel-to-Pixel, and Anamorphic mode.

The S5 is built with native support for optional L-series batteries. A D-Tap to DC power cable is also included for connecting to a brick battery for power. An optional power supply is also supported for continuous power.

For mounting, an L-shaped mounting bracket is included that secures into a 1/4"-20 mounting thread on the side of the monitor. The bracket provides a cold shoe on the other end and offers a cold shoe mount on the side. For control, there are four function buttons and a menu button on top. A protective case and sunhood are also included along with cables and other accessories.

Does this monitor do live "de-squeezing" for anamorphic lenses? I use a Sankor 2x Anamorphic.
Asked by: Kevin
The Bestview S5 5" OCR monitor does have a basic anamorphic mode, but for best accuracy, we would suggest a monitor such as the Atomos Shinobi which can do a 2x anamorphic desqueeze (SKU: ATSHIN) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1456145-REG/atomos_atomshbh01_shinobi_5_2_4k_hdmi.html

Hi, I cant see the camera info in my bestview s5 when is in movie mode. Its an a7riii. Its that normal?
Asked by: Martin
This will depend on how your camera is set to output through HDMI, not this or any other monitor. You have the A7RIII set for a clean HDMI output, you will need to look through the menus on the camera for the HDMI output setting and have it display screen info.
