Vizio 7", 9" and 10" LED Screens

Vizio has announced new low cost LED screens with built in HD tuners.

VIZIO - Mobile TV

What I think is interesting is that there is an HDMI input on the two larger screens. This might be an interesting field monitor option for HDSLR's. The 10" screen lists for $230. They are supposed to be released later this year.

But note that all three are still only 480, so not too much point to HDMI in, and not a huge advantage over a $100 DVD player.

I would think that the HDMI would be better signal that composite or component.

Just thought that it would be good low cost monitoring option.

Monitor for NanoFlash playback?

I've been thinking about getting a NanoFlash recorder for my V1U. One thing holding me back is the overall price.... not just the NanoFlash, but a video monitor that has either an HD/SDI or HDMI port (the only playback outputs on the recorder). Prices on those monitors seems to start at just over $600.

This $200 Vizio 9" with HDMI input might be just the ticket. Maybe you can't judge focus, but you can sure tell if, in the previous shot, the actor picked up the book before or after he sat down (or if he mugged the camera, etc.).

Ken,

That was my thought. $200 for a playback device with HDMI input is at least worth a try. The resolution is 800x480, which is the same as the Marshall monitors that everyone loves.

I think the advantage is the weight and size, since you don't have the bulk and the heft of the DVD drive itself. You can actually mount this to a camera and still have hand held capability.

The question is how to mount it to your camera?
If you have VESA mount ability, which being so small it most likely doesn't have, then I can think of a few things that could be put together.
