Swivi HDMI LCD + Canon 5DM2 + Battery Grip + Rode VMP

A video I shot several weeks ago, but decided not to post (the product wasn't announced yet). Now that it's been shown at PDN New York, here's a look at this unit with a Canon 5D Mark II + Battery Grip + Rode VideoMic Pro (showing access to audio ports). Keep in mind that this was possibly the very very first prototype released from the factory.

Shown in this video is a very very early mockup, and not completely relevant to the product being sold today. Software and build quality have been changed since. I still have not seen the final version, but supposedly it had great response at the PDN Show this past week. I hope to see a final version of the product once it's available online at http://www.SwiviUSA.com, which is said to be in two weeks.

    @Dave - Haven't tried it, but I don't see why not. The mini HDMI cable is a bit short on the Swivi though and is located on the left side (facing back) of the camera.

    @Giulio Sciorio - It swivels and doesn't require special rods or hardware to mount. That's about it.

    Man looks great an amazing price but I just don't know if it would be worth getting one for a T2I since it doesn't output HD while recording and focusing probably wouldn't be possible with it.

    Man this is super cool! I hope SmallHD makes something cool like this for thier monitors (like an add on piece). Having a monitor off to the side would be great.

    I hope they made it a bit stronger on the final project it looks a bit flimsy but Im still going to order.

  6. It seems it takes about 2 seconds from non-recording to recording status, right?

    How good is the color rendering compared to the camera LCD screen and real subjects?

    And how long does the unit work with one LP-E6?
