The new V-LCD71-MD 7-inch monitor from Marshall Electronics is claimed to be the first camera-mount monitor to offer full HD resolution. It uses a high-brightness 700-nit, backlit 1920×1080 LCD panel, and input/output modules that can be easily swapped to give the specific I/O combination users require.
