Well, still no word on the smallHD monitor, so I went ahead and purchased a Mahattan LCD 8.9" today. It should be here sometime next week. I plan on using it on a gig 2 weeks from Saturday. I'll post when the shoot is over.

Word of caution guys, expect all these things to go up in price soon. Now is maybe a good time to buy while you can. The cost of the component parts of LCD monitors from China, Japan, Korea etc. is going to push prices higher as the $, and Euro fall.

any sense of date for smallHD?

Greetings Dale

I have to order in the next week

but through a university process (so add an additional week or two on to that)

any sense of a release date at this point?

would like to hang on and wait but a ball park time line would help

(last date I saw was in January...)

many thanks
Jamie Jewett

Hey everyone,

as you all can imagine, I'm sure Dale is extremely busy with the upcoming smallHD release, in which case he may not have much time to be on DVI. I'd suggest you guys email any questions for him to info@smallhd.com

Looking forward to the new release!

That info is published on their site and readily available. Again, I'm not sure if he will be able to respond since they're probably slammed, but peope can also sign up to be notified of any updates. The sign up is on the 2nd slide on their home page.

Cheers!

I have an EX1 and may get a monitor. What is the impact of not using one with SDI? Some of the monitors that have it as an option charge $300 for the feature!

Yes, the panels are getting more expensive (even as BIG HDTV's fall in price). Grab what you need while you can. Manhattan LCD just got a decent batch of 8.9 finished monitors ready to go. They'll go fast.

They are just right for DOF/framing though I would not count on them for editing preview.
