I've tried a lot of field monitors over the years. A lot. Small, large, bright, ...not so bright. They all have their perks, and their downsides. But, very few really stand out from the crowd. The OSEE T7 is one of those that do.
The tiny but mighty Sony ZV-1 has a few drawbacks that almost any user will immediately notice. A plastic build, a tiny grip and a battery/SD card door that doesn't open if you have ANYTHING attached to the 1/4" screw thread on the bottom.

I originally reviewed the Portkeys Keygrip in comparison with the RVLVR Clutch, and pointed out that it had a lot of potential, but a handful of frustrating flaws. Well, they updated at least a few of those things, so here's a second look. Check out the video and let me know what you think! https://youtu.be/Vkbme88lvXM [...]

Well the LH5H takes all that and puts it in a cheaper, HDMI only but light weight body with 1700 nits (vs. 2200 on the BM5). 1700 is plenty for most outdoor use, if you're [...]
The Hollyland prosumer Mars wireless video kit lineup is already pretty full- running from the $179 Mars X (a single HDMI transmitter that works with their mobile app) up to the $649 mars 400S (a solidly built kit with both HDMI and SDI interface plus mobile app compatibility). Well, now the last piece of the [...]
