    Not sure how many have seen this yet but Im pretty excited about this monitor.

    BM7 7" 2000NIT BRIGHT HDMI/3G-SDI ON-CAMERA MONITOR WITH 3D-LUT AND SCOPES
    List Price is $999

    Nice aluminum housing.

    From their website;
    7" FHD 2000NIT Bright Screen, IPS Screen for More Accurate Color&Viewing Angles.
    made from 100% aluminum and the screen is protected by Gorilla glass.
    Custom 3D-LUT Support, HDR Preview, Guides, Waveform,Vectorscope, RGB Parade, Histogram, Audio Levels Meters, Peaking, False Color, Image Zoom, Check Field, Zebra, Underscan...
    Supports both pro batteries as well as DV batteries. Support for pro batteries ensures all day run times and support for DV batteries allows for low cost power options. Also features a mini-XLR power input for a secure connection.

    Here is a comparison of the SmallHD next to the Portkeys and that black square that you can't see anything on, the Red 7"


    A better view of the SmallHD high bright on the left and Portkeys on the right


    And the Osee 7" high bright on the left and Portkeys on the right.


    And finally the Portkeys on the left and Red 7" monitor on the right.
    (Yes the Red monitor IS turned on )



    All of my tests the Portkeys 2000nit monitor was significantly better then the smallhd high bright.
    Now the SmallHD is advertised as 1200NIT i beleive so I would expect the Portkeys to be
    better if it was really 2000nit, and it appears to be true.

    For under $1,000 usd this is a pretty significant deal!!

    Looks nice. What's the brand like? I'm worried about how they would handle returns, warranty cases, repairs, etc.

    US import is handled by Cong He, well known and respected andthe US Vaxis wireless rep.
    You would need to speak to him directly as to what service options are available.

    I'd hold off on purchasing (they aren't even available yet). Will be putting it through the paces...then potentially launching a GB! So stay tuned.

    I would hold the horses until somebody makes a video review.
    We've been there before:
    1.Most of these monitors aren't really as bright as the claim
    2. They get very hot from all these LEDs drawing all this power.
    3.In the sun a normal screen will still wash out as the sunlight is a lot more powerfull source of light than any amount of LEDs
    4.The screen needs a special transflective AR coated treatment to hold a candle to the sun. They are out there but it's usually widely advertised feature.
