LCD display to liveview K-7

Hi

I have been wondering if there's LCD photoframe or such 6"-10" display which accepts hdmi signal? I didn't find any in affordable price range 100-250$.

Why I'm asking is that i'm interested in building a rig with display, battery and such to help taking HD video.

Thanks in advance for replys.

The size/price range results impossible.
The best match I could find is a 15" monitor: Amazon.com: Coby TFTV1524 15-Inch Widescreen LCD HDTV/Monitor with HDMI Input, Black: Electronics

That's not going to be very useful unless you're only shooting within reach of an extension cord / with a generator running. It requires 100-240V mains power:

Incidentally, you might want to look at what the 5D Mk II folks have found:

cinema5D.com • View topic - Portable LCD TV 9"-10" (800x480) as Field Monitor?

The Lilliput they refer to is around $300, runs off 12V DC, and has an HDMI input among others. It's a 10.4" LCD, 800 x 600 px with claimed 400:1 contrast ratio.

I have no personal experience with it on Canon *or* Pentax, just throwing it out there since I saw the thread on Cinema 5D.

Actually, searching Lilliput on Cinema 5D turned up another more recent thread I hadn't seen. Seems there's a 7" HDMI LCD from Lilliput now for $230:

cinema5D.com • View topic - Lilliput 7" HDMI Review (it really does 1080p, $230)

That's in your price and size ranges, and it's again 11-13V DC so you could likely rig a battery pack for it.

Thanks for the replays, very useful. That 7" Lilliput. Yeah I have been planning on a reasonably prized "rig" where I would have camera and behind it that display and a good handgrip + battery.

That would make filming without tripod so much easier, also with focusing.

But thanks again, I knew I could trust these forums for the answer
