The Sony CLM-V55 Portable Monitor is used for viewing videos and still images from cameras or camcorders that support HDMI output. It enhances the images along the edges of the 5” screen using peaking support, and allows for precise focusing while displaying images at 800 x 480 resolution. With the ability to tilt forward and backward up to 90° and swivel 360° using an adaptor, the CLM-V55 Portable Monitor offers high flexibility in placement for easy view of the pictures you shoot. Using an easy to control dial for making easy adjustments to volume, brightness, contrast, color, and aspect ratio, it also includes a hood that shields the monitor from excessive light. Saving power with an auto shut down when the monitor is not in use for more than 60 sec, the CLM-V55 Portable Monitor uses an NP-FM500H battery which has a long life and gives high performance. It includes a headphone jack for monitoring audio levels while recording, and 2 shoe adapters for different camera hot shoes. The auto lock accessory shoe adapter is used with the Sony Alpha cameras, whereas, the other accessory shoe adapter enables you to mount the monitor on the traditional hot shoe found on Nikon and Canon cameras..
