smallHD launches external HD monitor for DSLRs

Now available to pre-order, SmallHD’s DP-SLR external monitor for DSLRs allows you to preview 1280 x 800 resolution images on a hand-sized screen. Complimenting your existing LCD screen, this 4″ x 6″ x 1″ is the world’s smallest HD monitor.

A bracket adapter makes it possible to mount the DP-SLR onto your camera’s hotshoe, and a neoprene sunhood accessory to prevent glare will available soon.

The DP-SLR has a screen density of 270ppi, which allows you to preview your shots with quality you’d expect to see from an actual photo print. With on-screen adjustments available for all the essentials such as contrast, brightness, hue, saturation and sharpness as well as RGB control and Gamma settings, photographers have a large-degree of photo manipulation.
