Video Monitor Candidate Suggestions
Posted 15 April 2013 - 08:35 PM
First, I like a small power-light 12V B&W monitor, anywhere from 5 to 12 inches, because they are hearty, use little power, have usually have wide dynamic range for intensity (you can turn them way down), but they still must deliver good images like my dying one does. Anyone have any suggestions? Because the a 5 inch is so light, it can virtually be taken and packed anywhere. I might, however, still get another 10 or 12 inch because the high res B&W image is often very good and relatively light/portable. Suggestions for the smaller or larger?
Second, a small high res color monitor to make the MallinCAM Hyper Color deliver everything it has is always nice. I don't need huge or heavy. It has been awhile since I have reviewed what people use, but I need to get something that delivers and is a little lighter than the Sanyo.
Thanks for reading. Any links or comments would be appreciated. If this subject has already been recently reviewed, send me to the right thread. Thanks.

I'd suggest SONY DVP-FX970 (9" wide 800x480 TFT LCD - DVD Player with rechargeable battery, used as monitor). Search fleabay item 261131370663 (mfg refrub, 1 yr parts&labor warranty), about $90 shipped.
In non-stretched 4:3 mode, the LCD resolution is approx. 600x480.
Note: model specific, many other models do not have composite video in capability.
(Buy only you need, let others have an opportunity to buy their own...)

In CN's equipment forum, there are few DIY project threads on a DIY 12V DC to (a lower DC voltage) converter. E.g., this CN thread.
There may be some commercial products (12V DC to 9v or 9.5V step-down/buck converter) as well. Fleabay 380586922019 ($3.69) can be a good starting point.
Also this fleabay item 181059065642 or 181059054638 looks cool.

Use the model I mentioned. I studied quite a bit.
