The shade is not finished, but one will be available. The two grayish black dots on each side of the screen are covering the screw holes used for attaching the shade.

How does the gates EM43 compare to these monitors when used with a 5d mkii? Does anybody use the Gates monitor with a dslr? Anything worth noting?

The NA-DP4 looks fantastic! This will be a killer combo when it comes out.

I use my Canon 7D for shooting video on land with a U-Boat - Direct Mount Canon 7D.

And I am currently looking to purchase an LCD (field) monitor to attach on top of the rig. The DP4 is one of the front runners and has gotten great reviews from what I have seen on YouTube.

Being able to use the same monitor to shoot video with my NA-7D housing will be extremely efficient for me.

I am excited :)

I already own a Marshall V-LCD50-HDMI 5" monitor but really hate that I cannot put it in one of the housings.

I have worked as an unpaid reviewer for the editing websites since 2002. Most all hardware and software is sent to me free of charge, however, in no way am I obligated to provide either positive or negative evaluations. Any suggestions I make regarding products are a result of my own, completely, personal opinions and experiences with said products.
