Sony Announces 5-Inch LCD Screen for HDSLR Shooters

Sony’s newly unveiled CLM-V55 is a 5-inch LCD screen for videographers (or maybe still shooters) who need a larger view of what their camera is recording. It has a 800×480 pixel resolution and has features that aid in shooting video, including a “color peaking” feature that highlights the edges of areas in sharp focus and a zoom-feature for checking sharpness. It connects to Sony interchangeable cameras via an HDMI port, and can also be used with HDMI-capable cameras from other camera makers as well (in the press photo above it’s being used on a Canon DSLR). It’ll be available starting in March at a yet-to-be-announced price.
