Multiple Shortcut Options

You can set different shortcuts to functions on the VS-1's directional pad. Shortcut options include: Volume, Brightness, Contrast, Check Field, Aspect Ratio, Zoom and Screen Marker. Setting shortcuts allow you to avoid entering the menu to use a function and saves shooting time.

Dual Power Supply System

The VS-1 can be powered in two ways: with an AC adapter or two lithium batteries (batteries not included). The two methods of power can also be used simultaneously so you can charge your batteries while using your monitor. Lithium batteries are commonly used (Sony F/FM/QM Series) and are easy to find and replace.

16:9, 4:3 and Full Aspect Ratios

The VS-1 can switch between three common display ratios: 16:9, 4:3 and Full Screen. By changing your display aspect ratio to your shooting aspect ratio, the VS-1 avoids any possible image distortion and makes for a more accurate monitor viewing experience.

Speaker and Stereo Headphone Output

In addition to broadcasting picture, the VS-1 is also equipped with an audio output so you can simultaneously monitor your audio input while watching your picture.
