Lilliput Monitor for DSLR Filiming

I've done my research and have decided to go with a
Lilliput. My question to you is which model should I go with and why?

I'm considering the Car Computer - Lilliput 669GL-70NP/C - 7" HDMI monitor (non-touch scre and a Car Computer - Mini External Battery - mobile power for Lilliput monitors

But there is more discussion going on here: http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/canon-eo...ml#post1501225

Just curious -- if you haven't decided on a model, how did you decide on Lilliput? That's like saying you will buy a KIA but need to know which car to get.

I'm not trying to be mean, but want to make sure you get something that will work for you and to do that, we need to compare model to model, not brand to brand,

In my case, it's what's available here in the UK in my price range. And as I can probably break an expensive model more easily than a cheap one (according to Sod's law), I'll go with the relatively cheap range this time.

Scott, you're not being mean. To explain using your car example. If I know I want a Dodge truck, do I want the Quad Cab, Do I want a Hemi, Do I want a 4x4 with a tow package?

Back to the Lilliput, there is the 6", the 7", the 8", the 2009 model, the 2010 model, the 2011 model, Touch screen?

Was just wondering if others who have used the Lilliput could shed some knowledge on whether one model is better than another.

There's nothing wrong with that, though. Many people, including my wife and me, shop
by brand first and then decide what to choose within that brand... cars are an excellent
example of that. It might not make much sense to you, but people do indeed shop that
way.

Robin, my 669 have component inputs. It was optionnal and replace the VGA input. Look: found an inexpensive monitor......finally

You might be able to get the breakout cable directly from the distributor?

As one of the key features of this mnoitor is the HDMI input then I presume the answer is "Yes". There is optionally component input too.
