The monitor can take power inputs of DC 7-24V and it has a power draw of ≤9W. It features a built-in Sony NP battery plate. Given its low power draw, I don’t think there was any real reason to have a dual battery plate.
There is also an 8.4V DC output so you can power your camera or other select accessories.
The monitor is fairly light and tips the scales at just 175g / 6.17 oz.
There are plenty of monitoring tools available, including all of the usual suspects that you will find on most of today’s monitors.
As far as mounting is concerned, CAME-TV gives you a rotatable camera bracket that attaches to a cold shoe mount.
It also features two 1/4-20″ mounting points.
Price & Availability
The CAME-TV monitor retails for $156 USD.
