monitor help

I was thinking of getting a monitor for my jvc hm600. The primary use, deposition where on rare occasions I need to sit on the opposite side of the camera's flip out screen. The other use would be for theater work. Both applications I will be using ac power and mounting it to the tripod. I'll be monitoring the framing and exposure. I set my white balance and focus manually before filming so these aspects aren't essential.

Two 7" 1280 x 800 monitors I have in mind are ikan vk7i and lillput in the $300-400 range. Any thoughts?
I was also curious how theses monitors handle different resolutions. My legal work is Standard def 4x3 while my other work is hd 1440i

Re: monitor help

You might want to look at Neway monitor:. NEWAY Industrial Limited_HDMI Monitors
They are the company that makes Ikan monitors since Ikan is just a re-brander and then they grossly inflate the price. I just bought a Neway 7" 3G SDI 1280x800 monitor for half the price of the same Ikan branded one. They also make an HDMI version for under $400. with all the features including waveform and one fewer features for under $300.
This IPS monitor is excellent value and very well made of metal with case and sunhood and two battery plates as well as offering a V mount or AB plate for another $25.
I bought from a seller on ebay who ships via DHL or at least to Canada which cost $75 but the monitor was here in less than a week.
Here is one just enter this number in the search field on ebay .
Hope this is of some help.
