The lightweight display mounts to your DSMC2 brain or other 1/4-20 mounting surface and provides a LEMO connection to connect to your camera. The DSMC2 Touch 7.0″ Ultra-Brite LCD is positioned mainly to be an ideal monitoring option for gimbal operators, and situations where you have to place the camera on cranes and/or remote (away from the camera) viewing.
Camera operators and cinematographers can still use a DSMC2 LEMO Adaptor A in conjunction with the DSMC2 Touch 7.0″ Ultra-Brite LCD for convenient mounting options away from the DSMC2 camera brain. On the back of the monitor you can find plenty of mounting options.
However, if you are looking for a cable-less design to accomodate a more ergonomic monitoring solution when on the move, then you should check out the alternative current “non-Ultra Bright” model DSMC2 RED Touch 7.0″ LCD, which does feature a fully rotating and lay-flat hinge design.
