Viltrox 5 Inch DC-50 HDMI monitor

I’ve owned a Sony CLM V55 5 inch HDMI monitor for almost 3 years and it’s my go to monitor for most things. Sure I own a SmallHD DP4, but it over heats in hot weather and doesn’t last nearly as long on a single battery or two batteries for that matter. Plus I’ve always liked the nice flip out sun hood included with the Sony CLM V55.

Even though the CLM V55 is a great little monitor, it’s about $350 new causing many to go with the Lilliput 569 monitor ($209). I was doing a little bit of scanning on ebay and came across this Viltrox DC-50 5 inch monitor. It looks almost identical to the Sony CLM V55 with the same sun shade, button layout, monitor mount, and adapter setup. At $195 it’s $155 cheaper then the Sony version and looks almost identical.

I’ve ordered one of these Viltrox DC-50 5 inch monitors for testing and I’ll let you know how it turns out against the Sony version. This might be a case the same factory different branding. It certainly appears that way. I’ll keep you posted.
