Brightest "Budget" 5 Inch Monitor

Recommended Posts

I'm rebuilding my kit and just got the Feelworld Lut7 7" monitor mainly for the price/brightness ratio (2200 nits/$269) and it's good but it's way too big and heavy for me, even without the f970 batteries. So I'm going to return it. I'm looking for a 5" (ish) monitor that's bright enough to be visible in daylight without horrible reflections, that runs on f970 batteries but won't drain them in a short time, for the $300 range. I've read good things about the Atomos Shinobi so I'm leaning toward that. The Portkeys BM5 is intriguing but maybe a bit too expensive. I thought I'd toss it to you guys in case there's something I don't know about, or if I should just go with the Shinobi. I'm using it with  Z Cam E2C.

I think the best options already have been said but there's also the 6-inch version of the Feelworld one, It's slighty lighter than the 7. But I think if you have the z-cam the camera controls with the Portkeys could be quite useful.

Atomos Shinobi, 1000 nits, 193 g 
Portkeys LH5H, 1700 nits, 170 g 
Feelworld LUT6, 2600 nits, 300 g
