Mentioned positively on the CML as a director's monitor, but obvious uses for Steadicam. At 900 NITS the screen should be decently bright.

I was just about to add this link to the forum.....

The specifications look alright, the 6,5" is good for us.
However, the power consumption is a bit..... wow, 5 amps at 12 volts. that is 60 watts. That needs some improvement.

I also wonder about the heat this unit generates and if it needs a fan to cool. If so, the soundman could be annoyed....

It doesn´t give any details about the quality of the recording. I hope it´s comparible with DV.

But no more separate recorders, always recording when the camera rolls, that´s what we need.

I realized after posting that the guy who posted about it on the CML was in fact the inventor so who knows how ready for prime time this guy really is. I think he made one for himself and after using it for awhile decided it was marketable. I doubt he has made any (or many) of them, so I'd bet he'd be willing to entertain input on the design. His contact info is on the web page. I'm just curious how much it costs.
