Small 7-8 Inch Color Monitor for Crane recommendations?

I'm looking at Panasonic BT-LH80WE (BTLH80WE) 7.9inch Multi-Format HD with focus assist. It's a bit pricy at $2360.00, but looks great, especially for on remote location with a small crane and Sony. I like the idea of focus assist here, I hope it works with Sony - will it?

Other than focus assist, can people recommend their favorite portable / battery HD monitors? (or preferably ones with zoom or focus that would work.)

Have a look at the new Nebtek models, the NEB70HD and the NEB70HDS.

I have the HDS with HD-SDI. The HD-SDI add-on board for the BT-LH80W is an additional $600. My Nebtek has a Panasonic battery mount, and I already have lots of batteries. Waveform would have been a nice feature. The Nebtek has loop thru, which was a more practical setup for leads to the 2nd monitor (production monitor). If I had a bunch of AB batteries already, I may have considered the Panasonic.

They both have features I wanted, so I picked most practical for now...

Talk to Rob at Nebtek, top guy.
