Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) April 10, 2010—At the NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 12th, SmallHD® will introduce the worlds smallest high definition video display: the DP-SLR.

Great article Zoltan!

I am looking to buy a compact field monitor with an HDMI input for my EOS 7D. This SmallHD looks very appealing but it's kind of out of my budget (I've spent enough on the camera as it is!). Has anyone had any experience with the 669GL-70NP/C from Lilliput? I have seen them for sale at http://www.carcomputer.co.uk. The SmallHD is no doubt a better spec but the difference in price is significant.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Si
