Aputure VS-2 7inch Camera Monitor

Aputure 7-inch Field Monitor

Today I wanted to tell you about a cool little monitor that I had a chance to use recently. It’s called Aputure VS-2. Although you’ll find other monitors with higher specs, I found that this 7″ model has everything I want in a field monitor – including the right price. For details, check out my video review.

You can get this monitor on Amazon and eBay.

You can probably get an even better deal on this monitor on

You might want to get extra batteries – the battery that comes with the monitor lasts about two hours.

Again, check for great deals on Sony NP-F batteries

Aputure also sells a more expensive model – the VS-3 – which has the HDMI loop-through. I haven’t used this model yet, but I’m hoping to review it in the near future.

  1. Thanks for the review of the Aperture VS-2, Tom. I’ve just ordered one based on your recommendation. It looks like a good product at a very good price. Keep up the great work. We’re big fans of your work films and your reviews as well.

    And good luck with the upcoming Red Spring!
