    The monitor is very compact and light weight. I like the focus color peaking very much. So far, everything is good for me. Thanks!

    I recently bought the 5" MustHD camera monitor to use with my GH4. I would say this is really a good buy. The price is very good and picture quality is really nice and accurate. Simple setup and light. I really  like it.

    I used the product for on camera monitoring while shooting video, I like the monitor because it is light weight, I can go and entire day without going through a entire battery on it (Sony F970).

    Very light, reliable, great for making sure camera is in focus, and pretty accurate colors as well.
    Very simple menu and settings. Takes a little getting used to but - it's a cinch really. Box comes with everything you need even a sunhood. Good product for the price.

    I use a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera. The M501 works fine with this camera even if I didn't try yet all the options. Anyway I have no problems with every kind of frame rate (I read on internet that several monitors from other companies have this issue).
    I hope my information can be useful.
       02/20/2014, By Edward Rozzo
    Your little monitor is doing just fine, I use it more than I thought I would!. It's lightness, the sun-hood and the brilliant image are often more important than the perfection of my Marshall 7" which cost $1200 !

    I am happy with my M501 purchase. Very fast delivery, via DHL. Good communication with this seller.

    I’ve been using this monitor for several months and love it. It has all the pro features you’d expect like focus assist, false color, marker etc. If you’re looking for a 5″ field monitor, I highly recommend it to you.
