    Hi Guys,

    I was looking for some advise from the community for a High Res monitor without the 5.8 Ghz receiver. Preferably built in battery so I don't need to power it on the field.

    Cheers!
    Anderson

    Go to B&H (http://www.bhphotovideo.com) and search for field monitors.

    Sorry, super late to this party, and you've probably already picked something up, but I got a Marshall M-CT7 from B&H (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...ectronics_M_CT7_CE6_7_CAMERA_TOP_MONITOR.html), that has a Canon LP-E6 battery plate on the back. I wanted something for both FPV and on-set monitoring with a Canon DSLR, and this fit the bill quite nicely.

    For FPV, I use an Immersion Uno receiver, which uses the same voltage range as the monitor. With a power cable splitter, one battery drives both the monitor and the receiver, and I'm certain I haven't come anywhere close to draining the battery through several flights with a gimbaled Phantom 2.

    The monitor has both HDMI and VGA inputs, and comes with a sunshade and a battery. There are other flavors of this same monitor with battery plates for Nikon batteries as well as standard AAs, all in the same price range.
