SmallHD has added another model to its Cine line of portable bright 4K production monitors, which, at 18" screen diagonal, sits between the previous 13" and 24" models. In terms of specs, the Cine 18 is broadly similar to these, but at 1,100 nits is slightly less bright than the Cine 13 model at 1,500 nits. Nevertheless, according to SmallHD, it is bright enough to be usable in daylight.
