At NAB 2014, Manios Digital & Film will introduce a 7-inch LED 1080p HDMI field monitor that is packed with professional features and available at a price that is a breakthrough for its class.

The Manios MD7 Field Monitor, which NAB visitors can see at Manios Digital & Film Stand C9539, is designed for use with DSLR cameras. Less than an inch thick and weighing only 12.9 oz., the monitor offers high resolution (1280×800), high brightness (400 cd/m2) and high contrast (800:1). Key features include record/run control for DSLR Cameras, a safety marker, check field, freeze input, peaking, and a histogram for exposure. Yet its cost is less than $450.

“The MD7 Field Monitor is super sharp, rugged, reliable and outperforms everything in its class—and it’s affordable,” says Manios Digital and Film president Steven Manios. “It’s perfect for all types of field applications and works seamlessly with all of the most popular DSLR cameras and most camcorders with an HDMI out.”

The monitor is available in three kits. MFM-777D, priced at $440, comes with four DV-style battery plates (for Canon, Sony and Nikon cameras).  MFM-777S, priced at $460, for Snap-On™ batteries and. MFM-777V, priced at $460, for V-mount batteries. All three versions also include a D-tap power adapter cable.  Snap-On and V-mount plates may also be purchased separately for $40. Other available accessories include shutter release cables for most popular cameras, and a detachable sunshade.

Controls on the front face are designed for easy operation. They include buttons for input, menu and  run/record, navigational controls, and three programmable function keys. The menu system includes selections for display, DSLR, audio and system options. The function keys are set by default to peaking, exposure and histogram, but can be reprogrammed to match user preference.

“The run/record button is a unique feature,” says Manios. “It controls the start and stop of the recording process with an optional remote control cable. It’s great for rigs attached to Steadicams, jibs and car mounts.”
