1920 x 1200 Beyond High-Definition

Similar to the rest of the Aputure FineHD line of monitors, the VS-5X boasts a 1920 x 1200 resolution display, making every pixel of your image clear and crisp. The 160-degree viewing angle makes it easy to see from all angles and the additional monitor space under the 7-inch display allows for indicators, shortcuts, signal inputs and battery info to be seen without overlapping or interfering with your picture.

RGB Waveform--Professional Color Monitoring

RGB waveform is the newest addition to the V-Screen's list of visual optimization functions, including two methods of displaying the data of your image: RGB parade and RGB overlay. Whatever method you choose, waveforms can help you accurately find the pixel-to-pixel color values of your image. This makes it easier to calibrate your image’s white balance, ensuring the highest quality control possible.
