I was working for years with the cheapo Handheld monitors (Radio shack with AB plate)... finally after I destroyed number 6 on set ( I just sold number 7 and 8), I started to look for a professional unit... Remember Transvideo?

Anyhow...
I was referred to that company by a friend and picked up the prototype (I went with the 7 inch model HP7002) which was modified for me with an Anton Bauer plate, there are 3 power plate to chose from, AB which is now a standard choice, Sony Lithium L and the Sony M (which is the one that the new Preston unit uses).

The unit includes an AC power cable and a removable pull out antenna, the Rubber ducky antenna is optional.
Rugged enclosure... The unit got dropped twice on the first day... especially the "Sun visor" that doubles as the screen protector... of course the first fall was screen first into the dirt.

What the director liked the most... We had 3 cameras rolling... You can black out all but the used channel on the monitor and you can switch with one button between the cameras... He order one later that week.

Very bright screen... not bad for under $1000.- out the door...

Give it a try... he is local to LA. Close to the I-5 and 134 interchange in Glendale.

And of course... bla, bla, bla... not working for him... bla, bla, bla... just a happy customer... you know the drill.

Check it out.

Later,


Erwin
