Hi, I'm looking to invest in a wireless monitor that I can use with my Canon 5D (mark II) while operating a DJI Ronin-M. The goal is to have a monitor that someone can reference while using the Ronins remote control so another operator can focus on their surroundings and moving with the Ronin. Price isn't a huge issue but obviously I'd rather not spend a ton if I don't have to. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

PIX-E5 Puts a Lot into a Small Monitor Solution

The PIX-E5 brings great technology on top of a camera. Virtually all you would want from a monitor is here with the PIX-E series, with the PIX-E5 being the smallest, yet capable. Body aside, the processing power that will allow Apple ProRes 4444 XQ video to be recorded is excellent.

Inexpensive Wireless Video Monitoring for your Camcorder or DSLR

Inexpensive Wireless Video Monitoring for your Camcorder or DSLR
A recent documentary and wedding shoot thrusted me front, dead center on one of the important issues confronting a serious videographer- video monitoring away from the camcorder. We are all used to looking at the viewfinder or LCD monitor up close, but Im referring to monitoring what the camera is seeing- AWAY from from the camcorder- the way the professionals do it. In my documentary shoot I was using a new product from CoolJib that allows you to extend your camcorder or DSLR as much as 6 feet away from your body, and control the camera with true jib tilting/panning mode. A provided 5-in HD monitor was tethered to the camcorder by way of the HDMI cable. While the HD monitor was good for showing me what the cameramy HD camcorder was shooting at, I wished it had been slightly larger, like 7-in diagonal. And I only got about one hour of monitor on-time using brand new AA alkaline batteries! Luckily, I had spare batteries, but it was just too inconvenient to exchange them that frequently. There must be a better solution, I thought!
