At CES 2011, Sony was showing off a new $399 external display for DSLR’s or any other camera with a HDMI (mini) output, which includes many Sony models. The CLM-V55 is a 5″ External LCD Viewing Monitor for live view video and stills, and a perfect compliment to a tripod setup and many other situations.
Other key features include:
The LCD has a 16:9 aspect ratio, but can display 4:3. Overall resolution is pegged at 800×460. It is powered by a M Type Sony battery, which could differ from your DSLR’s battery meaning you’ll need two chargers. Here is some photos of the CLM-V55 that we took at the show, including the peak view:
There is an incredible gallery of the CLM-V55 in action at DC Watch.
