Sony CLM-V55 DSLR monitor

The CLM-V55 from Sony is a 5-inch LCD monitor for DSLRs, designed for its own Alpha and NEX cameras, but suitable for any camera or camcorder with an HDMI output.

It has a tilt and swivel attachment for ease of viewing, and useful video features, such as colour peaking and 100% pixel magnification, both of which make fine focusing a lot easier.

The 800x480-pixel display features on-screen markers for framing, and comes with a detachable sun shade for outdoor viewing. There is a built-in mono speaker plus a headphone jack.

It is powered by a standard Sony Alpha battery or an optional AC adaptor. 

The CLM-V55 should be available this month for around $399/£300, which makes it very good value for an HDMI monitor with peaking.
