I was at a trade show couple days ago, SmallHD had the 702 out to play with which I was, been thinking about getting one for awhile. They did not have 703.

Looks much the same tho, different buttons? Is it brighter?

Don't buy SmallHD. Not worth it. Invest in something that will last and keep value.

Looks awesome as an on board operating monitor. Probably too light for most higher end cameras on a Steadicam rig but who knows. Not so sure why John is so negative about SmallHD. Just about every manufacturer these days updates their products at a high rate. I've got a Transvideo HD monitor I think I paid $7000 for many years ago that's worth less than what this monitor cost now. Anyway, not a big $ investment.

If you have a 3k budget look at the Transvideo Stargate FHD. Not as bright on paper, but fully featured including level sensor, zoom, and recording function.

I had the chance to play with the prototype awhile back and I'll be ordering one.  I did not get to see it in sunlight, but frankly my 702 Bright which I use for Studio mode operating has been so good that I have high confidence in this big brother.  More than twice as bright (2500 NITS versus 1000 NITS - although NITS aren't everything), glass bonded screen, and all the functions I love in my 702.  Plus, Lemo connector for power (same as the Teradek cables) with a 2nd Lemo for passthrough power as well.  Not sure why someone is bashing Small HD as I've found them to be incredibly responsive and a fabulous company.

 

As for the weight Doc, its beefier than the 702 by a lot, but still light so you'd need to add a battery on the back.  I've already put Matthias Biber from Cam-Jam in touch with Small HD abut making a yoke for his great monitor bracket.

 

Here are a few snap shots I took when I saw the monitor:

Alec, when you got a to play with the monitor, is the zoom function exactly the same as the 702? I find the zoom function on TVLogic monitors far superior (in terms of sharpness) compared to the 702.

Alex, sorry but I don't really know.  I can't say I use the zoom feature on my 702 much, but hopefully someone can chime in.
