Here's a video overview of Aputure's latest VS-3 7" IPS LCD HDMI Monitor. You'll notice we have this hooked up to the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera [#BMPCC], and we've confirmed that it can display the 10bit uncompressed 4:2:2 output.
One main concern for affordable monitors is always color accuracy. This is a highly subjective subject, but Aputure claims the colors on these monitors are pre-calibrated before shipping out from the factory.
I'm not saying it's going to look as good as a SmallHD AC7, but keep in mind the Aputure VS-3 is a sub $400 dollar display that offers many advanced overlays the AC7 does not - (audio meters, etc.). The monitor offers an HDMI pass through so you can still send the signal to another monitor or wireless video transmitter.
