The DP-SLR is a secondary monitor for your camera. It is designed for movie-makers who use the latest video-shooting DSLRs but need a screen that’s bigger than the one on the back of the camera.
The biggest draw is the screen itself, which has a phenomenal 270 pixels-per-square-inch resolution. This makes it pretty much as sharp and detailed as the best DSLR screens currently available. The DP-SLR plugs into your camera’s HDMI-out port (video can also be fed in through component and RCA sockets) and mounts on the hot-shoe adapter. Given that it weighs 10-ounces, you might want to do this on a tripod.
The screen also has a wide, 179-degree viewing angle and measures 5.6-inches on the diagonal. The drawbacks? first, you’ll need to run a power cable to it — there is no battery pack yet (although one is planned). The base model costs $900, and if you want additional 3G/HD/SDI inputs you’ll need to spring for the $1200 version. Finally, if you order one you’ll be waiting 75 days. Not 75 days from now, but 75 days from when your pre-order is turned into an actual order, which could really be any time, ever.
