Feelworld has a new 2600nit 6″ SDI/HDMI Touchscreen Monitor called the LUT6S. The monitor weighs in at 300g (10.58oz) and it has a power draw of 16W.
Freeworld already has a large range of affordable on-camera monitors that are available in a variety of sizes. However, this is one of their first affordable monitors to feature SDI In and Out as well as HDMI In and Out.

Screen & Brightness
It features a 1920 x 1080 6″ IPS panel that is made out of optically bonded glass with an anti-reflective coating. Feelworld claims the monitor has 2600nits of brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 368 pixels per inch (PPI). he viewing angle is 160º.
Feelworld is claiming that the LUT6S is an HDR capable panel. Strangely though it only supports ITU standards and HD video Rec.709 standard color spaces and not Rec.2020.
We have seen plenty of high bright displays come to market in recent years, and I have found some of them to be a lot better than others.
A 6″ panel is also a little unusual, with most monitors either being 5″ or 7.
OS & Monitoring Tools
The Feelworld OS can be accessed through the touchscreen operation, or via physical buttons.
As far as monitoring tools are concerned, it features waveform, RGB parade, vectorscope, RGB histogram, histogram, audio meters, focus peaking, image zoom, zebras, false color, frame guides, anamorphic de-squeeze, and safe area frames.
The LUT6S, as its name implies, allows you to load up your own 3D LUTs or you can use the built-in LOG to Rec.709 LUTS.
You can load internally up to 50 custom LUTs via the SD Card ( Support for FAT32 and NTFS).
The LUT6S has built-in HLG 2020, HLG 709, HLG P3 HDR 3D LUT, and Rec709. In-built LUTs includes SLOG2, SLOG3, LOGC, and VLOG.
Inputs & Outputs
The monitor has both 3G-SDI In and Out, as well as an HDMI In and Out. You can loop thru outputs, so you can display live video on external screens or with embedded audio. You can also monitor audio using the 3.5mm stereo headphone jack.
For power, there’s a 12V DC input and one NP-F battery slot. The monitor does feature a fan that automatically comes on depending on the backlight brightness. If the backlight brightness is set to greater than 80, the fan will turn on automatically.
In a nice touch there is a DC out so you can power a smaller mirrorless or DSLR camera from the monitor. However, this does require the use of an optional dummy battery and that will mean you need to keep the battery door open, which isn’t always an option if you have the camera in a cage.
There are two mounting points, one on the bottom of the monitor and one on the right-hand side. The 1⁄4-inch hole on the right side can be mounted to your camera using the included Tilt Arm.
Every LUT6S monitor ships with a cold shoe mounted Tilt Arm. The LUT6S can be rotated 360°. It also comes with a 1/4 20″ to cold shoe mount and the Tilt Arm also has an additional cold shoe mount for attaching other accessories.
Price & Availability
The LUT6S should be available soon for $389 USD.
