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
