Hello,

 

Im looking forward to buy a monitor for filming and photography. For photography I like macro and super macro and want a monitor which helps me to check the focus point /sharpness after a shot.

 

I talked to several people now and have two systems on my list: DNC-7A(H1) and SmallHD501

 

Thats what I found out on my own

 

DNC-7A(H1):

pros: cheaper, smaller, lighter, 7inch size

contra: 1280*800 pixel, internal batteries

 

SmallHD501:

pros: external LP-E6, 1920*1280 pixel

contra: cheaper, heavier, 5 inch size

 

My opinion is that I can life with the internal battery from the DNC-7A(H1). But is the resolution @ 7 inch enough to check images for sharpnes/focus/backscatter?

 

It would be great to hear your opinions!

 


Best regards Martin

For sure go with the highest resolution screen if you are using it for critical focus usage.

 

I'm not sure 1280x800 is good enough.

I've been looking at the new Ninja Flame V - has anyone announced a housing for it yet?  I haven't seen anything yet, but maybe I don't know where to look.

Dive and See have a newer 5.5 inch DNC-5A(H1) monitor that is 1920 x 1080  . I've also been debating between it and their DNC-7A(H1) 7inch 1280 X 800 monitor. As much as I would like a 7 inch monitor to look at, I think a smaller, lighter, higher Resolution monitor with less drag would be the way to go. But that little voice in your head is always saying, "isn't bigger always better" ? Its always difficult to make a buying decision when you can't hold the two items in your hand, or even try before you buy.

You all need a

7” 1920x1080 1500nit display
Best of both

I can see the Ninja V having a housing ready by a number of manufacturers to go come launch in the summer. It’s the ideal size, it’s cheap and bright. Makes the Inferno a hard choice in total cost vs benefit
