Until now, the standard resolution of a 7″ field monitor is 800×600 pixels. Companies and manufacturers have pushed to do more creating monitors at higher price tags that provided 1200 x 800 resolution screens. Aputure has done the same with the VS-2 and VS-3. That being said there are few, if any, monitors that boast a true 1920 x 1080p resolution screen.
With all of that in mind, we’re pleased to announce the VS-FineHD line, which boasts a screen of OVER 1920 x 1080p resolution. Both the VS-1 and VS-2 FineHD have screens that are 1920 x 1200p resolution, meaning that these monitors allow for additional camera data or space for monitor menus so they no longer overlap your image.
But that’s not all. Now Aputure has pushed the envelope even more by keeping the VS-1 FineHD under $200 dollars, making it one of the most affordable and high-tech monitors on the market. This screen is powered by a 450 nit brightness and 1200:1 contrast ratio monitor in a lightweight casing that runs off common Sony NP-F type batteries. The display itself is a glossy IPS-type with an ultra-wide 160 degree viewing angle and vivid colours. You also get a sunshade in the box. It also accepts HDMI or component video signals.
If you do want additional professional monitoring functions, then you can get the Aputure VS-2 FINEHD for $279. It has the same body as the VS-1, but includes focus peaking in different colours, false colour for exposure, histogram, zebras and audio level meters. You also get a battery, charger, impact-proof, water-resistant case and articulating arm.
As always, at Aputure we believe the future is a bright one. Filled with technology that is not only cutting-edge, but also affordable to all.
