The VS-5 is a 7″ field monitor with both HD-SDI and HDMI inputs, a 1920*1200 resolution, and a 160 degree viewing angle that makes it easy to monitor built-in functions such as waveform, vectorscope, RGB histogram, false color and zebras. This powerful device enclosed in durable, yet sleek housing makes the VS-5 the optimal SDI monitor for any shooter or cinematographer.
1920 x 1200, Beyond High-Definition
Long awaited, but never forgotten, the option of an SDI input is finally a part of the Aputure family. SDI maintains the quality of your footage and reliably transfers an HD signal in real time to your monitor. In addition to creating a more detailed monitoring experience, SDI allows for precision in your monitor assisting functions by processing the true data of your image. For those with cameras that cannot support SDI, HDMI is still available in the VS-5 as well.
Similar to the rest of the Aputure FineHD line of monitors, the VS-5 boasts a 1920 x 1200 resolution display, making every pixel of your image clear and crisp. The 160 degree viewing angle makes it easy to see from any perspective and the additional monitor space under the 7inch display allows for indicators, shortcuts, signal inputs and battery info to be seen without overlapping your picture.
Professional Color Monitoring
In addition to adding a hardware input, the VS-5 updates its monitoring software too. RGB waveform is the newest addition to the V-Screen’s list of professional assisting functions and includes two ways of displaying the data of your image: RGB parade and RGB overlay. Regardless of which you choose, waveform can help you find the pixel-to-pixel color values, it’s easier to calibrate the image white balance, and avoid different effects in different display.
Vectorscope—Measure Hue and Saturation
RGB Histogram, Monitor Multiple Scopes at Once
To better monitor your color space, RGB Histogram is also an additional monitoring function added in the VS-5. Vectorscope, RGB Parade, and RGB Histogram can also be displayed simultaneously to help gauge all the color values of your image in different scopes.
Exposure, Focusand Sound Monitoring
Besides monitoring color, the VS-5 also has Zebra, False Color, Peaking and Volume bar–all functions that can be used to better monitor your production.
Three Methods of Supplying Power
Unlike the VS-1 or VS-2, the VS-5 has adopted a new dual battery system that can eject or mount batteries with the press of a button. Though it features two slots though, the VS-5 can be powered on a single battery as well. Lastly, a separate optional DC 2.5 mm adapter or V/A mount batteries with an included D-type cable can also power the VS-5.

A USB flash drive is also included so you can easily update your firmware. We also include every kinds of HDMI cable you may need. The VS-5 is truly an all-in-one solution to start your professional monitoring experience.
