I have had my SmallHD DP6 for over a month and have used it on several shoots to include the One Day on Earth Documentary and a cross-country road trip with a stop to Moab to hang out with Tom Lowe from timescapes.org. I have been very impressed with the SmallHD DP6 monitor it is now a must have to keep a solid focus. I have found it to be the perfect size for HDDSLR shooting and great for run and gun work. It is so nice it never leaves the rig.
Bottom line: The SmallHD DP6 is a super sharp, rock solid monitor. I think it’s flexible power system and upgrade path from HDMI to SDI makes it a worth the extra money over the Marshall 5” because it can grow with you as a filmmaker. So if its 7D/5D today and Red Epic tomorrow spring for the SmallHD.
