    Sure the IQ180 screen is nice, but what if...

    I happened to stumble across this: http://www.crunchgear.com/2011/03/22...owered-by-usb/

    a 14" LCD monitor powered by USB. Don't know the specs or power draw, but *what if* it were hooked up to the new Phase IQ series MFDBs since they offer USB?

    $200 is cheaper than an iPad, but then again, if you can afford an IQ MFDB, why skimp now?

    From what I understood, only the Firewire bus is powered. The USB is not. Also, the battery is being charged while plugged into the Firewire which is a nice feature.

    Interesting about the USB. Have to look into that
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
