Features of RUIGE TL-S500HD On-camera HD LCD Field monitor:

*What you see is what you get: CANON 5D's 3" Screen can only display %85, but RUIGE TL-S500HD realizes FULL Screen Display. (Full Screen Display also work with other monitors like Lumix GH2 with firmware V1.1)

CAMERA + TALLY: it's designed for Canon 5D mark II. The image in standby and record mode not FULL SIZE because it downgrades the original HD (16:9) image to 480p (4:3) image, and zooms out the image display at the same time, which is hard for cameraman to shoot. After you press CAMERA button, all the output signals will be displayed fully on the screen within the safety marker. And RUIGE TL-S500HD HD Camera Monitor do not drop resolution when you recording on CANON 5D or scale the image up.

*Dynamic Zoom via "Linear zoom trigger", which realizes zoom from the center point to assist quick focus. Canon 5D/7D's zoom-in doesn't work in video playback mode, so videographers cannot check the video details. But RUIGE TL-S500HD can Dynamic Zoom based on RPD technology (Restoration of Pixel Data).

 For CANON 5D, RUIGE TL-S500HD monitor Dynamic Zoom during Monitoring & Playback Mode, but can not zoom during Recording.  For CANON 7D, RUIGE TL-S500HD monitor Dynamic Zoom during Monitoring, Recording & Playback Mode.

 The reason why RUIGE TL-S500HD Can Dynamic Zoom during Recording with CANON 7D, not with CANON 5D: Dynamic Zoom is used for HD Video at least 720P, CANON 5D output 480P during recording, and Canon 7d output 1080P during recording.

*Safety marker function: 5 scales safety markers for different shooting requirements.

Reviews of  TL-S500HD+Zoom-Trigger+HDMI-Lock

     , February 5, 2013 ( FEATURED REVIEW )
    IF you're looking for a good quality, cost effective monitor for your Lumix GH2 you're in the right place. Even though the S500 was made with Canon in mind it works flawlessly with my Lumix GH2. I can't tell you how pleased I've been going through COOLLCD for my field monitor purchase. Great... and I mean GREAT...customer service. I sent a total of four emails with various questions/concerns before and after my purchase while waiting on the shipment to arrive. These guys are awesome. The longest I had to wait for a response was 2 hours! The shortest was 8 minutes! My past experience with emailing customer service has been frustrating to say the least. Not these guys. They have a sincere sense of urgency and pride in their product. Oh and I almost forgot...shipping from China to the USA??? Four business days via DHL! From the time I ordered on line until the package was dropped off at my home in Kentucky, USA - Just four business days. COOLLCD supplied me with a tracking number right away to follow the delivery progress. I couldn't believe it when I tracked it Monday morning and it said, "On vehicle for delivery!" Ordered on Wednesday and received it on Monday! Very well packed, undamaged and everything in full working order as described on their site. Can't say enough good things about these guys, their company and product. Thank you COOLLCD and thank you "Hong" for your superior customer service. -Frederick
     Look no further, December 29, 2011
    As with all the reviews, the Customer Service is commendable. Quick response and accommodating. Only took 1 Day to ship from China to Singapore, tracked! Great value for $$, monitor works well with 5D2 as described. Build quality and features are fantastic at this price point. Encountered a bright pixel on my panel, however it is not very noticeable from the viewing distance and does not affect any functions. Do note that for 5D2, at full screen mode, the on-screen info (Aperture/ISO etc) are cropped off. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a 5" monitor.

    Pour les francais, pas de problemes. J'ai interrogé sur la disponibilité et la compatibilité du produit avec le nouveau GH3 de Pana. La réponse a été quasi immédiate. Pour la livraison, 3 jours après chez moi !!! La qualité est bonne pour le prix. Le produit est conforme à ce que j'attendais. Je le conseille.
     3 days delivery, great service , August 9, 2011
    amazing, only 3 days after i placed the order. works well, it is really a great monitor at this price. good design and function. one advice from me is you\'d better add 2.35:1 image ratio which is very popular in cinema industry.

    Livraison éclair ! Hallucinant... 27€ de Douane. Vraiment hautement recommandé, bon produits, bon prix, et bip bip le coyote comme transporteur, COOOOOL !!!
     best price/performance, many free gifts, July 28, 2011 ( FEATURED REVIEW )
    very cheap price for such a good monitor, much much better than lilliput monitor i bought last year. It can display the image full screen in monitor or recording mode on my CANON 5D, just as you said FULL Screen in Monitoring, Recording & Playback mode. The sunhood is much better than LILLIPUT small useless sunhood, also the sunhood is foldable to protect the screen. I also like so many free gifts. the linear zoom trigger is much helpful. all in all, the ruige tl-s500hd is the best price/performance monitor i met. so i recommend to ohter customers.
     very good price monitor, fast shipping, August 1, 2011

    If you have any doubts about ordering from China, this is the place. These guys are amazing - outstanding and really friendly customer service. Super fast shipping - from China to California in under 3 days via DHL. Well packaged. I was going to buy the Sony 5" monitor, then I found the Ruige for way less. It's a very sharp monitor and the zoom option is great for focusing. The sun shade is especially handy. I will come back again!!
     fast shipping. Amazing!, January 6, 2012 ( FEATURED REVIEW )
    I got it today- I have never seen such fast shipping. Amazing!
