Liliput 5Inch Field Monitor compatibility with Pentax K1 MII

Please, advice does Liliput 5Inch field monitor will work with Pentax K1 Mrk II? I don't see Pentax brand mentioned on product description.
Any other good Field monitor to choose?
Thank you!

My 7 inch Lilliput A7S works fine on my K-1. I don't see any reason why a 5 inch Lilliput wouldn't.

In fact, any old monitor or TV with an HDMI connection should work with any Pentax as long as the camera does HDMI out. I think the earliest Pentax to offer an HDMI out port was the K-7.

Aha! Just a few hours ago I was asking my technical expert (or 19 year old nephew) a very similar question. He came up with much the same answer.

As long as you have an HDMI input into the thing, it should display the camera's rear screen and live-view output. Different field monitors offer various features - full HD display resolution or not, focus peaking, different power options, and other bells and whistles - but they mostly have a pretty simple job to do. And they all seem to come out of the same factory in China.
