Thanks a lot, thats great news.

It will probably be a while till a magic screen comes out that will allow you to flip everything but the camera readouts ;-)

As I noted in my first post I bought it from ex-audio.com. I believe I paid with Paypal and there were absolutely no irregularities with the transaction. I paid about $48 shipping to US. Shiping is high to US because they fedex it from Hong Kong. Perhaps your higher number reflects import duties as well.

Lilliput Power Options

Thank you for the great review. I am considering picking up a Lilliput as well. I was also considering a Nebtek though this resolution is obviously better on the Lilliput. Do you think the Nebtek battery adapter would work on this Lilliput?

That may be a way to go. Also when shooting 4:3 does the Lilliput auto-adjust and place black bars on the sides, can the user change the setting, or does it stretch? Thanks again!

I checked my Lilliput. Although there is a menu button to change to a 4:3 ratio, and it is in the manual, I could not get it to work. 4:3 material was displayed full screen. Maybe this is not an option on the model I bought. I dont know. I only shoot 16:9.

I certainly would not waste money on a monitor with lower resolution. You wont get any better results that with your camera's lcd.

I guess the DC adapter would work. You might have to change the plug to one of the right diameter. Easy to pick one up at Radio Shack or similar electronics parts place.

I bought the lilliput 7" monitor from them and have found that while they might have shipped a unit quickly to the US, they do not seem to be responding on delivery to Japan! They don't answer their phones in Hong Kong and they don't respond to e-mails. I'd buy something way ahead of time with this outfit and hope all goes well if you want something. It's a bummer as I have a field shoot starting next Tues.
