This new HD monitor popped up on my Twitter feed. It probably won't compete with a full-on dedicated Steadicam monitor but for $1100 it has a lot going for it!

I could not find anything related to NITS brightness but it does HD-SDI / HDMI / Component. I wonder if it would play well with the new Canon HDSLRs?

Here's a video review:

I think it's similar to the one that I've see set up at Filmtools (8" Ikan for $775). It looks very nice up close, but I'm sure it sucks just as bad as most other lcd's in the daylight (the viewing angles on the 8" are a bit better...on paper).

But I admittedly spend far more time on stage and night exteriors than out in the daylight...maybe 70/30?

I spoke to them today and they are introducing 2 new models at NAB, both with hd sdi inputs. When I encourage them to accommodate using AB batteries they said that wouldn't be implemented. They seemed generally to be targeted at the prosumer market.

I've owned a number of IKAN monitors and even though they might not be on the same level as a Transvideo or Nebtek they are a decent monitor as a back-up or for a teleprompter. I recently had an issue with one of their monitors in that the component aspect of the monitor was not working. Their customer support was phenomenal and they had the monitor back to me within a few days. As mentioned they are going after the prosumer market so they might not be looking to compete with the brighter, more expensive bells and whistles brand but its still a good value for the buck
