- The built quality is OK- Bottun layout is very basic- On/Off switch is a soft click key (not a hard switch)- View angle is very good with color consistency- comes with a Mini to full HDMI cable (Thick cable) and not angled- The Sun shade has two parts (
This works outside in bright light. The price is right. I wish they had a 5 inch monitor as well.
Overall very pleased. An added threaded mounting hole on the bottom would help and it is a bit annoying that the camera display info reads backwards when the image is rotated. The picture quality is good enough. The peaking and focus tools and added visual tools are nothing to brag about and best ignored. But really this is a great basic and amazingly light-weight monitor at again a great price that does the job. I recommend buying it without any hesitation.
I was looking for a reasonably priced camera monitor-happy with this purchase.
its a good monitor
I now own two of these. They are a fantastic value. I use them primarily to help with focus and to place the monitor in a more ergonomic location as opposed to the camera EVF/LCD. I've owned several similar monitors from other manufacturers and I put the image quality of the FW760 with the best of them. A couple cons: Not a unit you can "throw around". I treat mine well. It did take some adjustment to get them to match the camera colors.

I bought this to pair up with my Sony A7sii. It looks amazing while recording. However, this monitor, like all the others that are not an external recorder, will steal the camera's signal and the camera operator will not be able to view the camera's LCD screen display. You can not view both at the same time. So just beware- this monitor is only useful as an on-camera replacement to the camera's on-board LCD screen, as it will steal the feed from your camera during recording. Make no mistake, the visual quality is superb, but simply will not work as a field monitor.
I purchased this to compensate for my failing eyesight. It works great. I have not gotten a feel for how long the battery lasts, but the power light being on when the unit is off is disconcerting. I am using it as an external monitor for my Nikon D600. The hotshoe mount could be better designed for less freeplay when not tightened ( there is no little loose, only tight and real loose). The latency is not a real issue when using the camera for photography as apposed to videography. At this time I would definitely recommend this item. I have an extended event to shoot on Saturday. If I get a feel about the battery duration, I will report it here.
Pros: I used this monitor on my Canon 6D (this camera doesn't support clear HDMI but the monitor still works on it, just set over scanon the monitor) and URSA mini pro 4.6K (yes, this monitor works on 4.6k resolution without problems). A8500 mah battery lasts about 7 hours on it.Cons: When you need to flip the monitor and watch it upside-down, you have to flip the image in the menumanually. Then, if you want to change other settings, the arrow buttons still behave as when the monitor is upside-up. You need to thinkinverselybefore you press the arrow buttons.
I have only had a chance to use one of the 2 purchased and only the one time. I found the 7" screen more than I anticipated. It is great I had use another type before and the picture on this I one heck of a lot better. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for something over the 3.5" display on the camera.

First, the bad news: Modest dynamic range so don't try to judge exposure solely by this picture; very lightweight plastic-y construction which wouldn't likely survive hard service in rental or student use; high latency when processing UHD so there's noticeable lag. The good news is it works as advertised and it's amazingly cheap. I'm using it with a Panasonic GX85, shooting 3840x2160 at 29.97 or 23.978 fps, and this monitor displays it (downrez'ed to 1920x1080) both live while shooting, and playing back out of the camera.As long as you understand this monitor's limitations & use it appropriately, it's nothing short of miraculous that it works so well at this price point. Would buy again!
I am a wedding videographer. The image and resolution of this monitor is quite decent. I really like it especially its price is the lowest I can find and its quality is no less than those expensive ones.
excellent product. I am very happy wit my monitor.
I bought three of these for some 3 camera interviews I was shooting and didn't want to spend a ton of money. They work great. FYI, I'm only sending them 1080 input, haven't tried 4K with them. Pro: Soooo cheap! Super lightweight- ideal for gimbals Battery life is fantastic using Sony NPF batteries. One large battery often lasts most of the day. Histogram, false color, peaking, guides, super sharp, and pretty good color (as good as many more expensive monitors out there). Very bright- works fairly well outdoors with no hood Has 4 programmable function buttons Cons: Only has one 1/4 20 mounting point which is on the bottom (though it does have image flip if you want to mount it upside down) If you're using it on a shoulder rig, the HDMI port is on the right side so I use a right angle adapter to keep the cable from protruding in front of the lens. Buttons are LOUD. If you want to use the zoom button to punch in and check focus during quiet interviews, don't do it. (I just rely on peaking- no big deal) Over-exposure (zebras) feature is strange. I have to dial it down to around 30% to display what should be 75% Refresh rate seems to be slow. When panning quickly, the picture skips frames. A handful of cons but overall: super sharp, decent color, lots of features, crazy lightweight and great battery life.
Works great but if you plan on using the composite input you need this information: I purchased this monitor so I could use it as a focusing aid for an XH-A1 for which I use the composite input. I have seen posts on other forums where people had to slightly pull out the plug (TRRS type) on this monitor to get the picture to render. The problem is that TRRS (tip, ring, ring, sleeve) plugs are not standardized and Feelworld uses a different connection scheme (pinout) than does the rest of the world. I exchanged email with Feelworld tech support and they sent me the correct schematic for their input. I ended up purchasing two blank TRRS and some 4 conductor microphone cable and making my own.
Got this because I video dance performances and as I have been getting older it is harder and harder to look at the small LCD low res screens and get anything close to being in focus. I use it with the Pansonic HCX1000 4K camera. During filming the resolution of the screen is great, but I still do not seem to be able to get sharp focusing in low light situations. Which makes me think that my eyesight is hopeless and that maybe I should be shooting with a better lense system or camera. The focus assist is helpful. There seems to be a range that it works in - just need to find the sweet spot on my focusing ring and always go to the end of the range, I did panic the first time i hit the record button on the camera and the screen went blank then after 5 seconds it comes o. I was relieved to find out that even though you cannot see anything during the black out the camera has not stopped recording.
Used with a JVC GY HM 170 which has a poor LCD screen and viewfinder. The FW760 solves the viewing difficulties of this camera. Good menu selection with useful functions. Good picture quality for this price. The only negative is the weight of the recommended battery which tends to tilt the whole rig but does deliver good battery life. Needs to be securely attached to the camera. We like the FW760 and it saved this camera from retirement..
Excellent video quality, I used it with my GH4 in 4K resolution, and works perfectly fine, has a lot of useful video features like focus peaking, histogram, zebra, false color, temp adjustment and a lot more. I really loved it since the first minute. Best bang for your buck.
Bought this monitor and overall really liked it. Good bang for the buck. However (and this is my fault) apparently, it will not display any 4k signals!!!!! I thought it would at least display 4k signals in 1080 but it was a blank screen. Tried the Panasonic G7 and G85. No cigar. However, when I set the cameras to record in 1080, then it showed on the monitor. HOWEVER, when you hit record on the G7, the image disappears on the monitor and it just says Side note: if you own or are considering a Panasonic G7, be advised that it will not display the image on an external monitor once you hit record. That is a camera limitation, nothing to do with the monitor. When you hit record on the camera, the image will go black on any monitor and then say recording video... or something like that. This is not the case with GH4 cameras and maybe GH5s. Not sure about the G85 though. I would stick with GH-series if you want to see what you're recording on an external monitor. ;) Last note.... my 4 star rating has nothing to do with the 4k limitation since the product info says it doesnt support 4k. It's because the menu fonts look really cheap and the image, while it looks good, it doesn't look stunning. nonetheless, still great! You can even zoom in on the image through the monitor to pull focus.
This monitor has been a big help when shooting sports. It's nice that it has an included sun shade. I've only had it a little over a week, but have used it several times shooting lacrosse tournaments for a client. I can actually sometimes now see the ball while in play. I haven't had time to play with all of the features yet, but they're what convinced to buy this model over several others I was looking at. It lasted through 6 lacrosse games with just one Sony NP-F970 battery. There are two things that I would like to see improved: 1) an HDMI loop through so that I could use this on the cameras (especially some of the older ones with only one, or a dominate, output) when used in a multi-cam situation and I need to run an output to the switcher. 2) the base of the cold shoe bracket does not stay tight enough with constant motion on the camera creating a little bit of a side-to-side jiggle that is mostly kept in check by the tension I've set on the HDMI cable between the monitor and the camera. I may be able to correct that when I have some time to look at, but not sure about that at this point. I would definitely consider buying this model again. I'm actually thinking about replacing my larger monitors with two of these in my multi-cam flypack as well as for field monitors for the other cameras.
I have a Sony FS5, and shoot in 4k. The problem is that that the LCD is so small, I really have to rely on the Peaking to tell if the eyes are in focus, and even the Peaking I don't find 100% accurate. So I bought the 760 because a friend had an earlier version and I could definitely see the detail in those 7 inches of monitor. So that's what I mainly use it for. The colors though, while look great, are not accurate to the Sony Monitor and footage, too overly saturated. Also to note, the box comes with no power or HDMI cable, so you need to already buy these things (mini HDMI or regular HDMI, battery and/or 12v source) or you'll open the box all excited to play with it, only to have to wait for the proper parts. Also, the Sony FS5, unless you have the raw package, will only let you see the image prior to hitting record, once I hit record, it goes back to the LCD monitor. In HD, you can see the image in the 760. Hope this helps. For the price, I think it's good enough.
Very pleased with quality of resolution and ease of setup; need to learn more about all of the functions. Great value for the price.
I use this on my shoulder rig and preset buttons to help with focus and exposure. Also it zooms in 16x so you can really dial in the focus. I worked all day with a smaller battery and it lasted the whole time.

I love this monitor. I purchased this at B&H Photo Video store at New York on last week of March 2017. I used this one with my GH5 Panasonic at Himalayan reason of Nepal. This produces a bright sharp image and right white balance so I can get great focus , frame and colors of my shots. It has many screen functions and supports many battery options. Light weight and price wise also very worthy.
Very nice monitor, not so good manual.
I got this to use with my GH4. When I first got it I didn't have a battery for it yet and used a 12V. power supply that I had. It worked for about 30 min. and quit working. I was bummed. Got home and checked the power supply and it was dead. Used a battery from my Ninja and the monitor worked fine. Have since gotten a large battery for it and it is working great. I am almost 60 years old and my eyes don't see the little GH4 screen so well. 7 screen is a must.
Hands-down, the Feelworld 760 is the best low cost monitor, period. Astonishing resolution, very true color right out of the box. Great adjustability and features. This is my third Feelworld monitor, and by far, the best.
The monitor is well build and great colors.
I looking at anything other than High Definition would be a waste. Great focus ability because you can actually see the image with the great HD quality.
Replaces a 5, lower resolution monitor. Good value for the price.
Love this device. Works very well, I have had noticeable lag using it. Excellent value for the money.
