It’s true that the displays on most new DSLRs measure at least three inches, and many of them offer impressive resolution as well. But the fact of the matter is that three inches really isn’t all that large, especially for individuals with less than perfect vision. Dot Line's new SWIVI External Monitor for DSLRs offers a relatively huge 5.6 inches of display area to give photographers the big picture.
The SWIVI external monitor uses a bracket to attach to a camera's tripod mount, and it plugs into the camera’s HDMI output; if your camera doesn’t have an HDMI output and Live-View function, you can’t use this accessory. The SWIVI also provides an HDMI output that will pass the signal on to yet another device.
In use, the SWIVI display hangs from the side of your camera and can tilt and swivel into whatever position offers you the best ergonomics. An included sunshade hood eliminates glare and lets you see details in bright sunlight. When not in use, the swiveling bracket allows the display to fold in behind the camera, to make the assembly less cumbersome.
The SWIVI external monitor has an 800 x 600 pixel resolution and features a Peaking mode to help verify sharp focus. A Zoom In/Zoom Out function can highlight small details, and stereo speakers let you and one or two viewers hear the recorded audio with adequate volume. The SWIVI is powered by six AAA batteries or a Canon-type LP-E6 battery, neither of which are included.
