Featuring inputs and assist functions for HDSLRs as well as professional video and cinema cameras, the TVLogic VFM-056WP 5.6″ Lightweight Compact Viewfinder Monitor packs a lot of functionality into a convenient slim form-factor that won’t unbalance a small camera rig. The VFM-056WP holds a 1280×800 LCD display and will accept video from most common sources, with Composite, S-Video, Component, HDMI, and 3G-SDI input compatibility. For using HDSLRs in a more professional capacity, the HDMI signal can be converted and looped through the SDI output—at 720p resolution—for connecting to pro-level monitors or other on-set or studio equipment.
Many monitoring tools and assist functions are built into this monitor including a movable 1:1 pixel zoom mode, waveform, vectorscope, audio level meters, zebras, false color, blue-only, on-screen markers for aspect ratio/safety, monochrome focus assist, an internal color-bar/pattern generator, DSLR scale, and more. The monitor can be powered via the included adapter or by using separately available battery plates.
