The VF973GH 9.7" LED 3G-SDI, HDMI On-Camera/Field Monitor from Orion Images Corporation features a native resolution of 1280 x 768 and supports video signals up to 1920 x 1080p. The monitor is suitable for use as an on-camera monitor as well as a production monitor when using an optional monitor stand. With 400 cd/m2 brightness and 600:1 contrast ratio, the monitor provides a crisp image and is suitable for interiors, and exteriors with the included sunhood. The 178° viewing angle provides for good off axis viewing, such as when a crowd has gathered around the monitor to view the shot.

The monitor incorporates as variety of useful features including focus peaking, false color, and horizontal / vertical flip (mirroring). Histogram, zebra bars, and pixel-to-pixel round out the camera tools that the monitor supports. With 3G-SDI and HDMI in and out, you can monitor your image, and send the video signal downstream to additional monitors or video village without requiring optional splitters. Center and screen monitors provide guides for camera operation, and the included tally adapter allows you to use monitor as your camera's viewfinder. The monitor includes battery plates for Canon LP-E6 and Sony F970 batteries, an HDMI cable, tally connector, and sunshade. Orion Images High Performance 9.7" LED Viewfinder/Field Monitor uses a high resolution panel featuring 178°/178° wide viewing angles. It is capable of multi-inputs including 3G-SDI HDMI inputs and output. Many of the built-in functions and front assignable buttons make this monitor very convenient to use in the field.

9.7" 1024 x 768 resolution display supports other resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 by scaling.
Peaking is a real-time, focus assist tool that superimposes pulsing red lines over the area if your image that is most contrasy, and therefore most in focus. This makes it easier to confirm that subjects are in-focus or not in-focus.
A real-time, digital exposure tool that indicates when subjects or parts of the frame are outside of the exposure threshold, the zebra pattern will appear on the parts of the image that have reached 100% brightness to warn that the area is overexposed and in danger of clipping.
The False Color feature provides under/over luminance warning by presenting the image as a series of color values representing exposure.
1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping allows you to look at sections of your image without any scaling, so you can see the actual detail and not be fooled by scaling artifacts.
The Histogram provides a graphic depiction of how many pixels in your image are at each level between black and white. This provides you exposure information so you can objectively judge how much of your image is clipping, falling into the shadows, or being captured faithfully.
You can power the monitor via the 4-pin XLR connector, or with optional Canon LP-E6 or Sony F970 batteries.
An optional Gold Mount or V-mount battery bracket allows you to mount and power your monitor.
The connector allows you to use the monitor's built-in tally indicator.
An included removable sunhood provides glare protection when shooting exteriors or brightly lit interiors.
Front panel controls allow you to adjust various display function and access the menu. The monitor features assignable front panel buttons that allow you to quickly access menu items without navigating through the menu system.
Three built-in 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes, one on each side and on the bottom, allow you to mount the monitor to your camera with optional 1/4"-20 mounts, or to a support bracket using the optional gimbal bracket.
