The SmallHD AC7 offers sophisticated focus, exposure, and framing tools in a 1280 x 800 HD, 7″ IPS LCD display. Connections consist of HDMI, Component, and Composite inputs. The menu is controlled via a scroll wheel on top that both navigates through all the features and pushes-in to make selections. There are also two function buttons next to the scroll wheel that are assignable with the feature of your choice, such as Focus Assist. The backlight is adjustable from one extreme of brightness to another to best support your shooting environment, whether for bright outdoor situations or studio settings.
The housing is relatively slim, and its bezels don’t add much around the display. The monitor is lightweight, coming in at less than 1 lb, well suited for on-camera mounting without placing any stress on the camera.
