Hey Guys,
As you may or may not know us Live TV guys need a secondary monitor for return video. I fly a 3.5" just under my 7" and I am looking for two more and for some reason I am having a hard time finding them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Here is an example of what I am looking for

Just search in Ebay for " 3.5" LCD Monitor" and you will see too many to choose from.

I bought 2 of these, they are not perfect, but do the job

a 4" LCD

Don't use the Marshall, i had one a couple of years ago with my first 'stabilizer', it was from Glidecam but it is exactly the same monitor. The contrast is poor, even inside.. !

Best, Erik

Thanks Guys for the input,
Jens the Transvideo is too big and too expensive for what I need and the Ikan does work its just a little too small

Eric I agree the Marshal 4" is too big too expensive and crappy on top of it

Rob, great idea, might just be what I am looking for

William, good idea, I may get the LCD Module and make my own housing

Again Thanks guys

Hi

Why don't you give the TV-One LM-401M a shot, it's light, rugged, has two inputs and an output.

Good value for money, I bought mine on ebay for about 90$
