CLM-V55: Sony's Clip-On 5-Inch LCD Screen For Digital Cameras

Are you missing a large screen on your camera that lets you monitor your footage whenever you shoot video in HD? Then the CLM-V55 Sony announced today might be the right solution for: it’s a 5-inch clip-on screen, which features WVGA solution (800 x 480).

The screen can be attached to “most” interchangeable lens cameras and compatible HD camcorders with an auto-lock accessory shoe or ISO shoe through an adaptor (which Sony throws in). It connects to other devices via HDMI and tilts and swivels “to any angle”.

Sony Europe says the CLM-V55 will be released in March (without mentioning a price). If it’s any indication, the street price in Japan will be a whopping $505.
