New Lilliput 8" VGA LCD

Hello there,

I just purchased one of these, should be here next week.

http://www.lilliput.com.cn/eng/conte...cts.asp?ID=240

I'm using for my Redrock DIY Adapter: http://www.reelinspirations.com/redrock

It was $259 plus $10 for shipping straight from them:

I'll write a review on the monitor and post photos soon.

Jim

On board LCD

Here is a cheaper and better unit because it has built in image scaling and it's not touch screen; http://www.xenarc.com/product/700y.html
I've used it in conjuction with component to VGA converters to get an HD image on the screen instead of a SD composite image. Can also be powered off IDX or ANTON BAUER power taps

Keith,

Which converter are you using? I'd love to see it.

How does it compare with SD to the monitor?

Which camera are you using?

Thanks,

Jim

Is it cheaper though? It says 319 usd. Looks like a nice rig though.

Xenarc monitor cheaper?

Yea - guess they've gone up a bit and I bought mine off e-bay at a steal. Here's a link to e-bay bidding on the monitor: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=67771
I actually recomend buying the model 700YV because it has 2 addition standard def RCA connectors and built in speakers so you could even give the director sound if you want. This model is even a few bucks more.
They're both probably a bit more but well worth it as they have built in scalling to use all the pixels (and I,ve fed them both a 1080p signal and they work), they're 16X9, 480X800 native rez, run off of DC from 11-17V, which is important if you want an Anton Bauer or IDX for power since those batteries start out fresh at 16+VDC

Is this a fairly know brand? I'm always cautious about getting off brand stuff. Sure sounds like a nice unit though.

Lilliput is OK brand. Xenarc is a better one.

I'm in need of a good monitor for focusing with the HVX. An idea how the quality would compare to the uncomfortably expensive Marshall? I've just cancelled an order of a cheapy 7" svideo monitor. Thanks.

Steve,

Once I get my Component to VGA adapter, I'll let you know how my Xenarc 700YV works with my Z1U.

Jim

I call these disposable monitors. These are fine for framing and OK for focus but they are extremely inconsistent and fragile. They are made for car-puters, not field work. By the time you get them to work for HD you will be upwards of $500+ and well on your way to owning the Marshall.

I have the Xenarc 800 version. It's an 8 inch 4:3 screen and it's great. Made of high quality durable aluminum metal, heavy but very sturdy. I've dropped it a couple times and it still performs like a champ. Sharp, but no S-video in so it degrades it a little. Still I use it for focusing with no problem with my FX1 and Brevis.

Here we're using it to monitor the feed from the crane:
http://blog.thelifeguardmovie.com/up...ot4-787760.jpg
http://blog.thelifeguardmovie.com/up...ot3-793707.jpg

It's got a screwmount on the bottom, standard 1/4" like on a camcorder so you can just screw on the mountplate for any tripod and put it on.

Also, if you're using a 35mm adapter and require the image to be flipped, the Xenarc has a both vertical and horizontal flip function accessible from the menu.

That's fine for pros but for us penny-pinchers "well on your way" doesn't mean "halfway there." Marshalls are near $1k.
