That is really exciting!

and selling it in the U.S. or is it still Vapourware?

I really like monitors that offer 1:1 pixel counts. Anything else
seems to have problems due to conversions.

I'd be more into the $400 version. I can put a hood over it in the daylight. Keep us updated Bruce.

Hi Bruce,

My preference would be for the bright, daylight version (but I could live with the other) with HDMI & composite as the main inputs (but other options most welcome).
12 volt power, (would be running off Sony V-lock batteries so up to 17 volt so nothing blows-like my last '12volt' monitor)
10.4" would be a good size with as high a rez as possible/affordable

Just built one using a Viewsonic HD-ready 19" tv with component inputs. It's in a flightcase with a 12v invertor powering it - I just plug the 12v into one of those rechargeable "Jump Start" things. Means I have a portable widescreen HD monitor which is protected from knocks. Probably not much good as a viewfinder (it's 19"! and not the lightest thing) but great for assessing lighting, letting people in front of camera know what they look like etc etc.

I've yet to try it out in the field but no reason why it shouldn't be useful.

Roll on the day when someone produces a small version though - the flip-out screen on my Canon XH-A1 is pretty useless.

The photo is from it attached to my Canon HV20. No Photoshop.

Price will be <$1000. Quite a lot under.

Like everyone else here, I've been unhappy with what's out there for the money. You make it good enough, we'll buy it!

Very exciting proposition. Sun shades are inexpensive and fine for for me so having the one closer to $400 with component would be fantastic.

I think the main challenge is field durability when it comes to homebrew stuff, best of luck, we are chomping at the bit.
