SmallHD's New AC7 Field Monitor Arrives...

Just recently received my new SmallHD AC7 field monitor (LCD version, though they sell an OLED too). I need a monitor that has a sharp screen for pulling focus, without weighing much at all, along with both SDI and HDMI inputs. The AC7 seemed to fit the bill, with a 1280x720 screen, and weighing about .85 of a pound, at $899. I'll be testing it out in the next week or so and posting impressions. So far, I can tell you that I had to up the Brightness on the monitor to properly see shadow detail in C300 footage shot with Canon Log, but after making that adjustment, things seem pretty good.
