Dale Backus from smallHD recently showed us their new $3000 oled field monitor, the DP7. It didn’t make us happy to hear that we’d have to wait until next year to get some new tech in the low end segment. If you’re just looking for a good monitor though the DP6 is still one of the most famous devices out there. With 1280×800 and lots of positive reviews it has won the attention of many filmmakers. We picked the DP6 for our review with the Sony FS700. To our delight smallHD has started giving out huge sales on DP6 packages. The package you can see on the left is $307 off and is now $1289. It includes: – DP6 (with SDI and hdmi) – Canon 5D/7D LP-E6 Battery Plate – Four sided Sun Hood – Three Acrylic Screen Protectors – Hot Shoe Ball Mount – Neoprene Protective Sleeve – Wireless Remote Control – 2 x 1.5ft Mini-HDMI to HDMI Cables – DC Wall Power Adapter – Flash Drive for Firmware Updates – and a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth There are many other options and also the monitor only without SDI is $100 off and goes for $799.
