PortKeys LH5P II Review

PortKeys LH5P II – HDMI Monitor with Wireless Camera Control!

In this video I review the PortKeys LH5P II. The LH5P II is a highly capable HDMI monitor with an impressive array of tools for filmmakers.

What makes this monitor so unusual is that it offers full wireless or wired control of supported cameras. Paired with the Sony FX3 I show how well this wireless control works and how useful it is to be able to see camera settings on an external monitor.
