    Terry when you tried it would be cool to see a quick review here.
    I'm currently debating between this one and the SmallHD Cine 7 monitor.

    Cheers,

    Finally just got mine after many months of waiting ;)

    First quick impressions :
    - It's heavier than the normal 7". The hinge version is 265g heavier than the normal hinge Lemo version I had until now, once I added the Lemo adaptor. (I don't use the pogo connectors, only cables)
    - It's also bigger (not the screen by itself, but the framen it's like 1 cm more in width) and thicker (a few mm, but it's quite noticable).
    - It's wayyyyy brighter than the original 7". Obviously, that's why I bought it and it seems to deliver ;)

    It's a bit early for me to say how accurate it is colour wise.
    I also need to find the right brightness setting for indoor use. On the original 7", I usually dialed back 3 points of brightness when shooting indoors. On the Ultra-brite, I think the right setting would be around -5 or even -6.

    Anyway, can't wait to try it out outside, I might finally be able to see what I'm framing even in broad daylight :D

    What is your impression so far, now that it's been a couple months?
    And how is the power draw with the new ultra brite?

    We have not user ours that much but I must say it is a joy to look at the screen. If you enable HDR luminance to it the image looks almost like looking at real sunlight.
    So very good so far! Also I know touch sensitivity is supposed to be better than the old monitors.
    It is of course a bit heavier and thicker but the image is great so far.

    Still very happy with it. No regrets here.
    A bit heavier and bulkier than the normal 7" but I was afraid it would be worse, it's not such a big difference after all.
    Touch sensitivity seems a bit better indeed.
    And really bright, as expected. Shooting outside in bright sunlight with the Movi is not a problem anymore.
    The only thing is you need to remember to bring the brightness wayyyyy down when shooting inside or in low light (I use it at +1 most of the time), otherwise the picture on the monitor will appear way to bright and you'll tend to under-expose your image to compensate for that. ;oP
    Not a problem once you're aware of it of course.
    Power draw seems similar to the old one, haven't done any scientific comparison though.

    Plus 1 on a smaller version of the Ultra Bright Red monitor. Maybe back to the old 5" touch screen would be a nice touch for all those of us using it on our Underwater housings and other uses.
