The Portkeys LH5P II is our 5.5-inch on-camera entry-level model into the world of wired and wireless camera control. However, no corners have been cut with a bulletproof all-aluminium housing and toughened glass in front of the display, a daylight-viewable touchscreen, four user-assignable function buttons that can even start/stop camera recording, and a full suite of professional monitoring tools. With a weight of only 285g/10.05oz (without battery), the LH5P II is a lightweight addition to your camera rig, but it adds many useful features to make your life on set easier.
The LH5P II has a maximum brightness of 2,200 nits, so shooting outside in full sunlight is easy. The 10-bit (8+2 FRC) panel makes colour reproduction more accurate with rich colour details and no colour banding. Also, each Portkeys LH5P II display is factory colour-calibrated and covers 100% of the Rec.709 colour space and 85% of the DCI-P3 colour space.
The Portkeys LH5P II features a 5.5-inch display with a FullHD 1920 x 1080 resolution, a large 178° viewing angle, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. The monitor features one 4K HDMI input and one 4K HDMI output that can take signals up to 4K DCI at 24p, 4K UHD at 30p, or FullHD 1080p at up to 60p. At the back of the LH5P II, you’ll find a built-in Sony NP-F-style battery plate that can power it for hours thanks to a low power draw of only 13W.
Also, the 5-pin aviation 7-24V power input at the bottom of the monitor and the included D-Tap to 5-pin aviation cable allow you to run your monitor via an external battery for unlimited time. Lastly, this 5-pin aviation power port can also be used to power small camera accessories (max. 5V 1A).
