The 7″ monitor features a 1000-nit bright, 1920 x 1200 resolution IPS LCD touchscreen display. It’s also able to accept video up to 4K resolution at 30 fps, thanks to its full-size HDMI input.
When mounting the display, it offers 1/4”-20 threads and an optional Tilt Arm mounting accessory. The Tilt Arm reportedly uses your camera’s cold shoe and “provides friction-based tilt for easy monitor adjustments.”
