What’s the best camera monitor this year?
Usually camera monitors are used by filmmakers to catch better shots and for better seeing.
But there are a huge amount of monitors to choose from.
I’m going to review five best monitors to buy if you are looking to involve in filmmaking.
A List of Top 5 Best DSLR Camera Monitors in 2019
1. Atomos Ninja Flame 7-inch
The good thing about this monitor is it can record log in 4k. I have seen other monitors getting dark and hard to see, when the weather is sunny. With Atomos it will never happen, this monitor is bright even outside.
It’s very easy to navigate in this monitor. I would recommend Atomos to professionals. Also, it has a 4.9/5 rating that means a lot of people prefer this monitor over others.
2. Neewer 7-inch Field HD
This monitor runs on Sony F-Series battery, which is not expensive, that’s why I would recommend Neewer to beginners. Another good thing about the battery, it is also used by other company’s products, that allows you to power multiple devices with one supply.
In this monitor another good thing is, the image flips for better view and positioning. This one has a lower rating than the Atomos, it has 4.6/5 but I would easily recommend this monitor, because it’s easy to use, it does everything monitor needs to do and it’s cheaper.
3. Feelworld FW759
Good quality monitor. Wide view angle and led backlight. It’s the best one if you are looking for a budget monitor. It’s the cheapest one from all of five monitors and it’s doing a good job.
This monitor supports most of DSLR’s and has multiple input options such as HDMI and AV. I would recommend this monitor for everyone who is buying they’re first monitor and learning. Feelworld has comparatively high ratings 4.2/5.
4. SmallHD 502 On-Camera
I had to mention this monitor for its size. SmallHD is smaller than other monitors and easy to pack with you and even traveling.
Its quality is good and it does all the functions monitor should do. Also it has no psychical power input.
This monitor rating is 4.4/5. This one is recommended for those who don’t rely on their DSLR’s small rear display.
5. Sony CLM-V55
The sad thing about this one is, it doesn’t rotate and its mount only tilts in two directions. I guess that’s why this monitor rating is only 3.9/5.
6. Atomos Shinobi 5″ 4K HDMI Monitor
The newest HDMI monitor available this year is the Atomos Shinobi. It’s the best monitor for vloggers and photographers. The polycarbonate body makes it light and portable. Also, with its built-in memory and the SD memory card slot, you will have extra storage when needed.
- 1920×1080 resolution
- Calibrated true-to-eye colors
- Long battery life
7. Blackmagic Design Video Assist 4K, 7″ High Resolution Monitor
You’ll love the solid build, the SD card slot, how it uses Canon batteries, and an intuitive user interface.
Good to Know
I would like to say the best monitor is Atomos Ninja Flame 7-inch. Unless you are just getting started with filming, then I would recommend choosing a budget monitor. But I have quite big experience and for me filming outside in the sun is important and this one fits for it the best.
In my opinion it has the best quality and while filming, easy navigation means a lot, that’s why it is good also.
