The Sony CLM-V55 is a 5-inch clip-on LCD monitor for recording movies with Sony’s DSLR cameras. The aim is to give owners of Sony’s interchangeable lens cameras a bigger and better view of their footage while shooting HD video.
Sony said the CLM-V55 is a portable video monitor featuring a high-resolution WVGA (800 x 480) LCD panel. Attaching easily to most Interchangeable Lens Digital cameras and compatible HD camcorders via the supplied adaptor, it displays video footage during shooting/playback with excellent clarity and a wide viewing angle, according to the company.
The clip-on screen tilts and swivels to any angle for comfortable framing in any position – even self-shooting when you’re in the picture. The CLM-V55 LCD video monitor will be available from March 2011, to retail reportedly at $400.
