Neway has announced a new 7 inch high-brightness displays. The brightness range of these new HDR 4K field monitors is 1800 nits.
Today I would like to share you the test feeling.
We provide you with a monitor, a carrying case, an instruction manual, a cold shoe monitor stand, a full-size mini HDMI cable and a 3.5mm jack with an unterminated cable at the end.
The screen is a 7-inch 1920×1080 (8 + 2 FRC) IPS LCD panel. The contrast ratio of the screen is 1200:1, and the viewing angle is 160 degrees. It has a brightness of 1800 nits.
You can change the Kelvin color temperature and Gamma of the display. The Gamma setting can be changed between:
Basically, the lowest gamma setting (1.8) will make the image brighter, and the highest gamma setting (2.6) will make the image appear darker.
The weight of the 7-inch display is 360 grams (12.7 ounces). We feel very light for a 7-inch monitor, which may be an advantage if you use it with a small and medium digital movie camera.
We have placed 1/4 20 inch mounting points on all four sides of the display. It’s nice to see it, it allows you to install it in many ways.
The monitor has 3G SDI input and 3G SDI output, as well as HDMI input and HDMI output. You can cycle through the signals as needed. In my opinion, it is always a good idea to get a monitor with both SDI and HDMI input/output capabilities. You may only use the camera when the HDMI output is disconnected, but what if you change the camera to use SDI? Both greatly increase the versatility of any display.
Most of these tools can be adjusted and customized. There is no unfortunate waveform tool.
When using “Image Zoom”, if you assign it to a function button, you can choose between “Pixel to Pixel” and “Zoom”.
The magnification level depends on what you pre-selected in the menu. You can choose 1.5 times, 2 times, 3 times and 4 times. Now, the only problem is that you cannot adjust the position of the zoom on the screen. If you select 2x in the menu and want to change it to 4x, you must return to the menu.
Using “false color”, you will get a clearly marked false color indicator guide, using zebra crossing, you can adjust in the range of 0-100%. This is good because you can set an accurate level for the intermediate gray on the camera and use it to get accurate exposure.
There is also a function called freeze. Basically, if you set up a lens, then enter the menu and turn on “Freeze”, it will display that exact lens until you turn it off.
You can load the 3D LUT via a USB flash drive. The monitor also has 8 preset onboard LUTs, and you can store 6 of your own LUTs.
The monitor consumes 16W of power, and it can withstand an input voltage of 7-24V. It uses dual Sony NP battery panels. The battery can be hot swapped on the monitor.
The battery will not move or swing on the battery board, and it is easy to install and remove.
There is nothing worse than a monitor with a loud fan. Some of Atomos products sound like mini hair dryers in the same room. The good news is that pnbe is relatively quiet. Although there are indeed a few fans, they can hardly be heard.
Image quality and usability are at least the two biggest boxes for me, and they need to be ticked on any monitor to be used in a professional environment.
