Pixel LV-W1 Wireless Live View Remote Control.

Pixel LV-W1 Wireless Live View Remote Control.

The Pixel LV-W1 wireless live view remote control should work for both stills and video. The 2.4ghz transmitter mounts on the hot shoe adapter and connects via the USB port on the camera. The signal is sent to a 3″ LCD monitor. I contacted the company and they currently only sell directly. No mention of price that I can see. They responded very quickly to my email. There is one on ebay selling for $335 US out of Poland. A Big THANK YOU to Joe Womble for bringing this to my attention. Keep the emails coming!

Hello All,

I have a little update on this topic. I’ve been trying for a while here to email directly with the people at Pixel and they finally got back to me. I’ll copy the conversation here…

I said:
Hello Pixel Enterprise,
It looks like you have some very nice products on your website. I’m interested in the LV-122 wired live view remote control. Can you tell me if you offer a model that will function properly with the Canon 5D Mark II? If so, is there anywhere I can purchase that item in (or for shipment to) the United States? Can you also tell me what the usual retail price is of that device?
Thank you so much,
Jordan

They say:
Thank you for interested of our product. This product LV-122 wired live view remote control is suitable for Canon 5D Mark II. But unfortuantely this product is not available at this moment, our retail price is US$180.00/set which is not included the shipping. If you have any question, please kindly to let us know.
Thanks and best regards!
Pixel Enterprise Limited

So we don’t learn too much, but we do hear that their devices are supposed to work with the 5D2 and we get a little price comparison between the wired vs. wireless options. I’ve written back to ask where we can check on future availability, but so far that’s still the unknown factor. If anyone else has additional info I’d love to hear more! Thanks!

I’m interested in the wired version of this device. It’s listed as the LV-122 on Pixel’s webiste: http://www.pixelhk.com/en/proview.asp?P_ID=1541

I’m curious is anyone has found an outlet (other than ebay) to purchase Pixel’s products in the US, if the LV-122 will work with the 5D mark II, and also what kind of video quality we can expect from such a device? I see that the screen resolution is listed as 960 X 240 (which is different than the Canon’s built in screen of 640×480, though they’re both 3″ displays), but I wonder what signal the camera puts out through the usb port and how exactly that image will be interpreted.

Anyone got some clues? Thanks!
