02Mar Neewer DC-50 Field monitor, rebranded Viltrox DC-50?

The Neewer DC-50 field monitor (above) looks very similar to the Viltrox DC-50, the only major difference appears to the price. The Viltrox hovers around $200, while the Neewer DC-50 is closer to $120. Are they the same monitor? The packaging for the Viltrox DC-50 looks identical to the Neewer DC-50 and if you look close on the Amazon product photos you […]

08Dec Viltrox DC-50 HDMI monitor review w/ side by side Sony CLM-V55 comparison

I’ve been meaning to finish up this review for about 2 months now, unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) I’ve had a pretty heavy shooting schedule over the last 5 months. Everything for this review was actually filmed almost 3 months ago, I just hadn’t had the free time to sit […]

15Apr Viltrox DC-50 5 inch monitor (Sony CLM V55 clone) – First impressions

The Viltrox DC-50 5 inch monitor showed up this weekend and I’ve just had a chance to unbox it and take a closer look. The DC-50 looks a lot like the Sony CLM-V55 from a distance but when you take a closer look it’s easy to see the differences. The most noticeable difference is the build quality. […]

23Mar Sony 5 inch HDMI monitor clone $195 Viltrox DC-50

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 […]

15May H005 Real Pic 5.6 inch 1280×800 hdmi monitor

LCD monitors have really started to advance over the last couple of years. Manufactures have been able to cram more and more pixels into smaller and smaller areas. It was only a matter of time before someone caught up with the pixel count of smallhd’s DP6. At less then a quarter of the price ($220 […]

21Aug Android devices as your next field monitor and camera controller?

A few months back I wrote a post about the possible use of android devices as a Camera monitor slash controller for your Canon DSLR. It only took about 3 months for the guys over at dslrcontroller to almost make it a reality. I say almost because the video record mode isn’t working quit yet in the […]

12Aug A protective case for your 5 inch monitor.

I had to leave for Chicago yesterday morning and I needed a couple of cases for my Sony CLM v55 and Smallhd DP4 monitors. I started digging around the house to see what i could find and it turns out that both monitors fit quit nicely into the same case that I use for my Zoom […]

14Jul Empty monitor space on the Sony CLM v55 with Canon DSLRS.

I finally had a some time this evening to run a few proper tests with the Sony CLM V55 monitor and go through the menus. I will admit that I have a little bit of buyers remorse. Although the image is crisp and the colors look very good the monitor has no stretch or adjustment […]

12Jul The dirt cheap monitor died. Meet its replacement, the Sony CLM v55.

I’ve been using that little dirt cheap monitor for a number of months,but it finally took a fall from 10 feet and abruptly decided to stopped working. The size has made it one of the most used monitors in my collection. Manly because it easily fits in my camera bag and runs all day on […]

18Apr SmallHD DP4 4 inch monitor.

SmallHD makes some great monitors, but their flagship model the DP6 is well over $900. So unless you do a lot of paid work, or have money to burn, the DP6 might be a little out of your price range. It seems SmallHD had this in mind when they announced the DP4. The SmallHD DP4 […]
