HDMI Monitors reviewed

I’ve just posted one of the longest reviews I’ve produced to date, this time looking at a bunch of HDMI monitors from Marshall & SmallHD.

Dual SmallHD DP6 monitoring

One area where I use my DSLR’s a lot is for interviews. Because the cameras are so small and portable I’ve been shooting a lot of two camera interviews by myself. Up until now I’ve tended to hitch one camera to my Marshall monitor and treat that as my main shot with the other camera set up and then left largely un-monitored during each take. With their ability to achieve a such shallow depth of field any movement on the part of the interviewee can result in the focus needing to be adjusted so only being able to monitor one camera is a bit risky.

SmallHD DP6 first impressions

I got back from my shoot in Austria last night to find the DP6 monitor from SmallHD waiting for me. To be honest I’m not going to have much time over the next few days to put it through it’s paces but thought I’d share a few initial thoughts with you and some quick iPhone pics I took whilst having a play with it.

SmallHD announces DP-SLR 5.6″ DSLR monitor

Hot on the heals of Marshall’s new V-LCD50 5″ monitor SmallHD have announced the DP-SLR, a 5.6″ monitor that packs 270 pixels per inch and only weighs 284g. These could both be awesome accessories for a DSLR shooter, I wish I could make it to NAB to see them in action!

Here’s some info from SmallHD….

This monitor was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the HDSLR videographer. The DP-SLR measures 4’x6’x1′ and weighs in at only 10oz (284g). This small, lightweight package makes it very easy to shoot on the run without first taking a bodybuilding course.

Within the small 5.6′ diagonal screen the DP-SLR packs a whopping 1280 x 800 resolution. At 270 pixels-per-inch (ppi), this translates into near laser printer quality. To put this into perspective, the new 27′ (2560 x 1440) iMac runs about 109ppi. The DP-SLR has over 2.5 times the pixel density. It is hard to describe how this looks. Hopefully you will be able to see for yourself at NAB. We thought about providing pictures, but you literally don ‘t have a computer display that would do it justice. You ‘d be like my grandma watching Blu-ray on her 4×3 SD TV
