The Aputure VS-5X V-Screen 7" On-Camera Monitor is a monitor that features a RGB waveform and histogram, along with a vectorscope, that helps assist the camera operators with bring the best consistent imagery possible. Because of the HDMI and SDI I/O, this can connect to an array of gear that is both consumer and prosumer. Not only that, but because of the cross conversion, it allows consumer equipment to be used with broadcast equipment and vice-versa.

The 1920 x 1200 screen can fit Full HD images without scaling, while leaving room for data display such as timecode, scopes, and other relevant information. Scopes can be displayed as overlays, or side-by-side with a scaled down video image. Power can either be provided by the built-in NP-F battery slots, or via the 2.5mm barrel jack. A D-Tap cable is included for powering off professional batteries or power distribution plates. The 450 cd/m² screen is more than adequate for indoor viewing. A sun hood with mounting bracket is included to block glare outdoors. HDMI cables, a cleaning cloth, a shoe mount, and a carry pouch are also included to round out the package.

LCD Panel

Like the FineHD monitor line, the VS-5X sports a 1920 x 1200 LCD display for representing Full HD images without scaling. The 160-degree viewing angle makes it easy to see from all angles, and the additional monitor space under the 7" display allows for indicators, shortcuts, signal inputs, and battery info to be seen without overlapping or interfering with your picture.

Versatile I/O Options

HDMI and SDI inputs can interface with professional and consumer video equipment. Cross conversion allows for versatile workflow options, enabling consumer gear to interface with broadcast-grade switchers and recorders, and vice-versa.

Power Options

Two NP-F battery slots can accept a wide variety of batteries, while allowing for hot-swapping to keep the monitor running. A separate optional DC 2.5mm adapter, or Gold/V-Mount batteries with the included D-Tap cable, can also power the VS-5X.

Sun Hood Included

For outdoor shooting, secure the sun hood for glare-free monitoring. Both the hood and the mounting bracket are included in the box.

RGB Waveform

With both RGB parade and RGB overlay modes available, these valuable on-set tools can help you accurately find the pixel-to-pixel color values of your images. This makes it easier to calibrate your image's white balance, ensuring greater consistency between images and less time required in post for color matching.


Another valuable tool for analyzing color, the vectorscope built into the VS-5X measures the hue and saturation of the image. Using these measurements, directors, DITs, and colorists can quickly make necessary adjustments to achieve accurate and consistent colors.

Scope Display

The RGB waveforms, vectorscope, and RGB histogram can all be displayed on the screen simultaneously, while the video image is scaled down for concurrent viewing and accurate framing.

Other Monitoring Tools

Besides monitoring color, the VS-5X can also display zebra lines, false color, peaking, a volume bar, and SDI timecode functions that can be used to better monitor your production workflow.
