LILLIPUT HD70HP 7'' LCD Monitor

Just bought the new LILLIPUT HD70HP 7'' LCD On Camera HD Field Monitor w/ HDMI & Component YPbPr for my Sony Z5 - free shipping!!.
Best thing is the monitor can be powered by my F970 camera batteries - they provide the bracket FREE.

Ordered the sunhood and 7"arrticulating arm plus a few leads for US$330.

Went and looked at Marshall with HDSDI plus arm and petrol bag/hood for $2000, but just for a client view it seemed a bit rich.

Despite the HD tag it is still only has a resolution of 800480 like the other little Lilliput monitors. It's $100 more than the already excellent Lilliput 669GL-70NP/C but adds component input & according to the specs is much brighter than the already very bright 669GL (400cd/㎡ vs. 250cd/㎡)

Yeah I noticed the tag for HD "support" rather than display but it's mainly for clients to see framing and lighting indoors. Outside I use the eyepiece and playback to clients if they want - which generally they dont.
What I did like was the fact that unlike the 668 with an internal battery and 669 with external batteries plus velcro, this monitor runs off the F970 batts I use so i can quick charge,swap and don't need an AC charger.
I just hope the monitor is as good for the price as people say.

If as I suspect it is pretty much the same panel as the 669 in different packaging (very handy using the F970 batteries) then you should be very pleased for the price. Please keep us posted.

Yes, I bought this one direct from Hong Kong Lilliput 7" 669GL-70NP/CH Monitor 669HB+shoe stand+bat on eBay (end time 15-Dec-10 02:02:35 GMT) Delivery was very quick (maybe one week). It really is fantastically good value for the money.

BTW I am English I just live in France. Anyone called Nigel is almost 100% guaranteed to be English:-)

I just double-checked & the monitor I have is the higher power version of the 669GL at 450cd/㎡

I'm using this one

Lilliput 869GL-80NP/C/T 8" TouchScreen HDMI Car Monitor on eBay (end time 03-Dec-10 15:58:17 GMT)

I've used it for a few gigs, and everyone seemed so impressed by the quality, for that price, it's quite cool.

Sorry Nigel, but.. are you THE Nigel Barker? Haha..?

If so, since when are you living in France?

Cheers

No I am not THAT Nigel Barker & if you Google "Nigel Barker" I only make it on Page 5 because I own the domain nigelbarker.com. Funnily enough there must be something about the name that attracts us to visual arts as there is yet another Nigel Barker who is a photographer in Sheffield in Yorkshire in the UK who has this website http://www.nigelbarkerphotography.co.uk/ & he is on the first page of search results

However as the other one is a bit younger than me I can still claim to be the original & genuine Nigel Barker:-)

The 869 is 8" while confusingly the 669 is 7". I have never seen an 869 but the 669 was a little cheaper & I figured that 7" was enough. It's not the size but what you do with it that matters:-)

Received the package today...wow! quick and the monitor display is fantastic...BUT...it is just a 668GL reconfigured and I notice the price had dropped $30 over the weekend as well...so, could've done better, but the free shipping to Australia sold me. Monitor sits really well on the camera on it's articulated 7" arm (don't recommend the 11") and the menu allows for plenty of tweaking.
A similar articulated manfrotto arm goes for around $200.

Anyone know who the intended market is for Lilliput monitors? For whom are they geared?

Thanks,
John

I would say they are geared to the non-broadcast market - ie corporate, web media and event coverage for video such as HDV, AVCHD and DSLR previewing and focus.
Once you get into broadcast standards and start looking at Marshall and Sony the prices start around $1000. There are intermediate brands such as the Ikan range which are probably suited for both.
It depends on how critical you need the display to be. If it's just for framing and focus and general external work - the Lilliput is fine. If colour temperature, pedestal and contrast have to be 100% accurate for lets say, a TV commercial, I would recommend a bigger mainstream monitor and a bigger wallet.
There's no need for overkill on non-broadcast - you should be able to trust your camera settings and use the monitor as a back-up display.
