I have used SWIT products for some time now. I own several S-8U62 Li-ion batteries for my Sony EX1, as well as their S-3602U dual battery charger. The S-8U62 batteries also work great with my Litepanels MiniPlus and d-tap. SWIT also has great customer service, which next to product quality, is the most important thing in my book. Several weeks after I purchased my batteries, one of them was not holding a charge. So I contacted SWIT and without hesitation they sent me a replacement. This may seem commonplace, but you would be amazed how difficult it is to get some companies to replace items, even if they are still under warranty.

About a month ago SWIT contacted me to see if I would be interested in testing their field monitor. I was definitely interested because I am in the market for a high quality monitor. I have spent a lot of time with this monitor both shooting outdoors and indoors, trying to put it through all the tests that I could think of. The results were pretty good.

Pros
Large 7″ display
Easy to use
Various battery mounts (can use Canon LP-E6 batteries).
Comes with sun shade
Lightweight
High resolution 800×480
Price – $690

Cons
No peaking
No multiple mounting points
No image flip
Glare issues when used outside, even with included sun shade (not included in video)

Overall I have been happy with the SWIT S-1070C monitor. If you are in the market for a sub $700 monitor the SWIT S-1070C is a great value.
