Lilliput H7S 7-inch high-bright and T5 touchscreen are the newest additions to the growing monitor line-up from the popular monitor maker.
The popular budget monitor manufacturer’s latest on-camera monitors may be of interest to a lot of you looking for feature-rich monitors that won’t break the bank. The new Lilliput H7S is super affordable at just $278 and given its feature set, this is quite impressive. The H7S is 7-inch high brightness monitor with HDMI and 3G-SDI, targeting compact cine camera users with URSA Mini‘s or RED Komodo.
While the Lilliput T5 is a more compact 5-inch touchscreen monitor more suited to DSLR/mirrorless hybrid filmmakers and video creators using HDMI cameras.
Expanded Connectivity – 4K HDMI and 3G-SDI In/Out
Furthermore, the Lilliput H7S sports a 4K HDMI Input and Output (it’s HDMI 1.4 so you get 4K/30 support), however the addition of a 3G-SDI In and Out is more welcomed here. The display is rated at 1920 x 1200 resolution with IPS LCD construction and 160 degrees viewing angle.
Nevertheless, the biggest feature here is the 1800nits brightness, which makes this monitor daylight viewable in sunlight, at least on paper. Battery power is delivered by a couple of NP-F style batteries, which are cheap and plentiful.
In addition, the H7S supports 3D LUTs (17-points) and HDR including HLG, solving basically all your on-camera monitoring issues.

NEW Compact 5-inch Touchscreen for Your Mirrorless Camera
With HDMI 2.0 support for 4K/60p and 50p (in addition to UHD), the new Lilliput T5 is a powerful little monitor. And one that is very affordable too – priced just below $180 USD. It can be powered either by Canon LP-E6 or Sony NP-F style batteries, both of which are very popular among video creators.
Far from a high-brightness monitor, the T5 has a decent 400nits brightness making it somewhat usable outside, however it is no match for the brightness of the H7S. Nevertheless, the capacitive 1080p display should make for a pleasant experience.
Much like the SmallHD FOCUS, it has a compact swivel arm making it easy to adjust when doing low-angle shoots or using it on a gimbal.
Furthermore, what is really impressive with the T5 is the 98% DCI-P3 coverage and ability to import custom 3D LUTs in .cube format just like on the H7S. Also, the monitor has popular transform LUTs for Slog2 and Slog3 to Rec.709 and various low-contrast variations to suit your needs.
The new T5 also comes with a hefty set of professional monitoring, focus, and exposure tools such as False Color, Peaking, Histogram, and more.
