TV Logic 5.6" HDMI On-Camera Monitor.
**Found this video on you tube from film-tv-video.de**
I got an email from a C5D viewer about this 5.6″ monitor from TV Logic. According to the email, they can be had in Europe without having to pay enormous tax. This monitor is jam packed with features. Here is a rip from the email. They cost around 1K here in the states. There is a thread on the forum here.
“I was looking for a monitor, like the smallHD but didn’t like the import-duty & taxes here in Europe. Last week I discovered a brand new monitor from a well-known company, TV-Logic. The TV-Logic VFM-056W / VFM-056WP has the same specs / functions as the smallHD and is in the same price range. But TV-Logic has a very good dealernetwork in Europa so no import-duty for the Europeans. I’ve ordered one and I am very impressed. Maybe a usefull tip for all the cinema-5D-readers.”
Here are some specifications on the monitor.
“VFM-056W/WP is an amazingly light and compact viewfinder monitor specially designed for HDSLR and small camcorder shooters. Utilizing 5.6″ LCD panel with high resolution of 1280×800, wide viewing angle of 170 degrees and luminance of 300cd/m2, VFM-056W/WP guarantees the best usability for indoor and outdoor shooting with HDSLR cameras.
