We recently "bit the bullet" and bought a "real" HD monitor for our field productions, the Panasonic BT-LH80W . This one is pricey (street price is $2200) but its a great monitor. We can mount it on the HD camera for field work, hang it in a carrier for the director (think a Flava Flav clock) and even run it off batteries.
- Designed for studio and field applications
- 7.9-inch low-power, lightweight monitor
- Built-in waveform monitor
- Compatible with 1080/24 psf, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i
