    The Kinotehnik LCDVFe comes with 15mm rod based mounting system, it can be mounted onto your camera's hot shoe or 15mm support rods.

(It also includes a cap for this purpose) The LCDVe has HDMI in and out, with the A size HDMI connectors located on the bottom of the unit in an easy to access location. The LCDVFe is virtually lag-free, it has a fast start up time of less than 1.5 seconds, and blackout while switching resolutions lasts less than half a second. The LCDVFe features Color Peaking, Zoom, Zebras, Flase Color, anamorphic stretch, frame lines, audio levels, histograms and more. It has a power saving mode, can be powered using the supplied Power Tap cable or the included 'AA" battery adapters. (Approx. 6 hours of run time with 'AA' batteries).
