Naturally when you have a tiny Raspberry Pi, you start looking for equally diminutive accessories for it, and this Lilliput 668GL monitor fits the bill perfectly. Although I think designed for mounting on top of Digital SLR's when shooting video, the fact that it has a HDMI input makes it well suited to the RPi.

It comes with a sun shade (probably not that useful for RPi owners) and a handy little stand that screws in using a standard camera tripod size screw. The stand appears to have a self-adhesive base if you wanted to permanently affix it to something, but in my case I just use it as a desk stand.

A surprising extra bonus is that the flat battery plate on the rear of the monitor is exactly the right size to velcro your RPi to if you have a suitable micro case for it - all I need now is a 6" HDMI cable rather than the half metre one I'm using right now...

It's a versatile little monitor too - in addition to HDMI it has 2 composite video inputs on BNC and even component video - although the days of needing that, even in professional video land, are probably over. The additional inputs are nicely protected by some well fitting plastic dust caps which means for those of us just using the HDMI, everything else is well covered up.

The power adapter that arrived was US fitting, but there was a travel adapter in the box which works just fine - but perhaps hints that the unit wasn't originally destined for the UK market.

The monitor also comes with a little remote control that gives you easy access to a menu that lets you adjust colour temperatures, flip the image (handy if you are ceiling mounting it maybe) and various other functions.

All in all, I think it's a great little monitor for the Rasberry Pi and clearly has more traditional uses too.

I have the 667GL version of the Lilliput and used it on a daylong shoot two days ago for the first time. It's a very very useful low cost addition to the DSLR video shooters arsenal. I have it rigged onto one of my tripod arms and it has been really useful to frame up and check critical focus. I am shooting with a panasonic GH2 and it is so much easier than using the camera LCD I can recommend it. My only niggle is that on start up, it defaults colour stauration to zero and you have to keep resetting it... but that might be me not reading the instructions carefuly enough! I wouldn't rely on it for really accurate colour temp checking, but it had worked well enough when checking the rushes later on a large pro monitor.

The Monitor was purchased to obtain a better view of what the video camera is seeing, also to help with manual focusing. After a lot of head scratching regarding mounting the unit I decided to use a small tripod to mount the monitor independently . This enables me to turn the camera without having to move myself. Filming a live stage show recently I was able to turn the camera through 180 degrees and film the audience reaction, without the need to stand up and get behind the camera.
Watching recorded footage on the camera is much easier on the Lilliput's 7 inch screen than using the camera's screen.

The unit arrived well packed and very promptly. It is very easy to set up and use. If you are making films or just filming family parties this is a useful addition to your kit.

This is an extremely useful screen for a variety of uses - I have not tried it with a camera - but tested them with Raspberry Pi computers. It has very good connectors on the back and the internal battery means it is useful as a portable screen (as long as your fonts are not too small! It does have some rather fiddly modes - designed to make it easier to see in daylight - and we found these irritating when we just needed a screen. Also for unnatended computer displays be aware that it may need to be turned on with a hardware hack.

The description says "Max 1920×1080 pixels" but that is just what you can put INTO it - not what it can display (it has a resolution roughly half that) - but full HD would be a bit of a waste anyway....

Very happy with item. I use it on my DSLR to shoot low angle and get a better look at my composition.

I have to rate this monitor only 3 stars as, with my EOS D550, I get a stretched image when recording so monitoring is compromised. It's fine when setting up the shot in standby and when playing back but I can't get it to work well in record mode.

Perhaps someone out there knows a way round this?

It's a fine monitor otherwise...

This monitor does not fill the entire screen with picture when used with some DSLR's I have a 60D you only get a box with 5 or 4 inch of actual picture so in hindsight if your gonna use this with a DSLR check first.

For the price, this a great little monitor. Good clear picture. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that to change the battery you need to unscrew the back with a screwdriver and plug a battery in with a lead. I bought an extra battery as filming outside most of the day. If you only have on for 2 hours you can get by with charge up of one battery that is done with battery in situ (no need to remove battery)

I purchased the monitor thinking that it would be just another novelty gadget. Just another gadget that would not be a lot of use. However, I have found it to be extremely useful. It sits nicely in my coat pocket, permanently connected to the camera via a short cable. It could be mounted on the hotshoe of the camera, but I think that in a hand held situation it might prove to be a bit cumbersome. It is very handy to get an instant review of the photo just taken, and much better than the on camera screen. The definition and clarity/Brightness of the screen is superb,and is a great aid for someone who's eyesight is a bit less than perfect. It does'nt have to live in my pocket.I have purchased an optional 2 metre cable so that it can rest on a wall, etc, or even the ground. The monitor automatically goes into rest mode when there is no input, and so is not a great drain on the rechargeable inbuilt battery. The charging plug was U.S. standard, so I had to buy an adaptor ( The supplied adaptor was the wrong one )
