Turn Your iPhone Into a Powerful On-Camera Monitor With This Tool

On-camera monitors are an essential tool for anyone doing video work, but a proper display is often quite expensive. Modern iPhones and iPads have spectacular screens, however, and in those displays are a ton of potential for filmmakers. The Accsoon SeeMo acts as a go-between for your camera and iPhone or iPad, allowing you to feed it an HDMI signal from your camera and use it as an on-camera monitor. How does it perform in practice? This great video review takes a look. 

Coming to you from ZY Cheng, this excellent video review takes a look at the new Accsoon SeeMo HDMI adapter for iPhones and iPads, which outputs 1080p video at 60 fps. The Accsoon SeeMo is compatible with all modern iPhones and iPads and comes with a cradle that can hold iPhones, making it easy to keep your phone on top of your camera as you work. It also offers a 5-volt USB-C output for powering things like lights or microphones. Meanwhile, the accompanying Accsoon SEE app comes with all the expected functions, including features like a histogram, false color, zebras, waveforms, compositional overlays, focus assistance, custom LUTs, and more. Altogether, it looks like quite the useful device. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
