SmallHD makes great monitors at an affordable price. We’ve rented out their monitors for a few years now and were stoked when we heard about their new DP7 Pro OLED onboard monitor. It produces a phenomenal image and a ton of features that shooters want.
The DP7 Pro monitor is 7.7” and has a 1280×800 high definition display resolution. Because it is an OLED display, the DP7 has a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, meaning you could incredibly dark blacks. Check out the video below where we show the difference between the DP7 OLED display and the TV Logic LCD display.
As far as inputs go, the DP7 has SDI, HDMI, and CVBS. The monitor does allow signal conversion, meaning you could input to it from an SDI camera and output to something like a 17” director’s monitor that takes HDMI, or the other way around.
The monitor has virtually all the bells and whistles you could want an onboard monitor to have including: vectorscope, waveform, LUTs, and false color.
