Wireless on-set video monitors, sometimes referred to as “Watchman”, are often seen on film sets with the director or other staff members who need to see what the camera sees at any time during the shoot.

The very small high resolution field monitor, the DP4 by smallHD has started shipping last month. One of the interesting features of this monitor is that it supports hdmi loopthrough and also doubles as an EVF (Electronic ViewFinder). In this video Wes and Dale, the creators of smallHD monitors, give you a detailed look at the DP4 and DP4-EVF attachment. The drop test at 19:13 is interesting.Read more

You’ve seen the new smallHD DP4 monitor in our NAB coverage of the smallHD party in April. It’s a 4 inch high resolution monitor that supports hdmi loopthrough and doubles as an EVF (Electronic ViewFinder). This is a pretty interesting concept. Thinking back I found the viewing angle to be similar to the iPhone 4 screen and the screen to be very bright and extremely high rez. However, there’s word about digital filter artifacts in the final signal, so as with all new products it’s a good idea to wait for detailed and honest reviews to come in first. Other specs – 4.3″, 800 x 480 screen (217 ppi) – Milled Aluminum front/plastic back – HDMI w/ Loop Through, Component, Composite, 1/8″ Mini Stereo If this unit turns out to be as good as it looks on first sight, the pricetag is absolutely unbeatable. smallHD websiteRead more
By: Sebastian Wöber This is one of the most intriguing products I’ve seen at NAB so far. The smallHD dp4. Build quality is really great as we’re used to from smallHD, it packs a ton of features, hdmi loopthrough, dslr scaling issue prevention, diopter change, even sdi is possible, just to name a few. The viewing angle is similar to the iPhone 4 screen as far as I could tell, and I’m really picky about viewing angles. The screen is very bright and extremely high rez. If this unit is as good as it looked on first sight, the pricetag is absolutely unbeatable.Read more
