In this project, we're going to make a DIY monitor using an 5 inch HDMI touch screen and a 3D printed enclosure.
A display monitor is a very helpful tool for video production, you can check the pictures right away to make the adjustment。
OK, let's find out what we need：
1. A camera which support HDMI output. such as NICON or Cannon and so on.
2. 3D printer.
4. HDMI cable with MiniHDMI cable or a MiniHDMI converter.
5. A bracket, you can just design it and print it by 3D printer or make it by yourself.
6. M3 screw X 4
Step 1: Print Out the Screen Enclosure and Assemble It.
At the very beginning, print out the screen enclosure, you can just download from the links below:
You can assemble it after printing the enclosure just by that four screws.
Step 2: Connect It to Your Camera With HDMI Cable
You can just plug it into your camera with HDMI cable.you can see that MiniHDMI cable is smaller than normal HDMI cable, and also you can just buy a HDMI converter as the pictures that showing.
Step 3: Setup Your Bracket for the Monitor
Setup the bracket for the monitor, and put your 5 inch touch screen on it. It's perfect fit for this screen...
Step 4: Turn on Your Camera and Enjoy It
