On this video photographer and videographer Caleb Pike from DSLR Video Shooter takes a look at an inexpensive high resolution monitor with some interesting capabilities from Feelworld.
The monitor is great. However there are quite a few things to keep in mind when looking for a monitor including the quality of the panel, the resolution (and supported resolutions), the connections, ergonomics, build quality, and of course, all the different features such as Histogram, Peaking Focus Assist etc. Besides that you will need to consider pricing – most displays that tick all these boxes can cost close to a $1000 or even more depending on the brand and size (typically small monitors start at about 5 inches and go up to 17 inches or more for large pro studio/production monitors).
The Feelworld F7 is a 7-inch high res (1920 over 1200 – a bit over FHD) based on an IPS panel with 4K HDMI support, Two 1/4″-20 Thread Sockets, 1200/1 contrast ratio, and a flexible battery system that supports Sony style F970 battery plate (standard), D28S/D54, E6 and U60 battery plate (optional).
Maybe the most interesting are the features of this screen with a histogram, Peaking Focus Assist (Red, Yellow, Blue, White), False Colors, Zebra Exposure, Zoom (Auto,4x,9x,16x), Anamorphic Mode (1.3x,2.0x,2.0x mag) and more.
As for pricing – this is an inexpensive unit. Actually when you think about what you are getting this monitor can be considered extremely affordable at just under $190.
