Field Monitor That Supports 120FPS?

Anybody know of a 5" - 7" field monitor I can use with my DSLR that supports 1080p @ 120FPS? I can only seem to find 60FPS but like to shoot at 120FPS so I can slow footage now very smoothly... but then I can't see the footage.

    I'm not sure about this but I think your best bet might be to record output from the HDMI at 10 bit Full-HD, 1080p120 onto a suitable external monitor/recorder, then use that monitor/recorder to review the recording.

    At this point the Atomos Ninja V monitor/recorder looks like the best bet, and it offers a number of compressed and a RAW format to choose from for recording.

    Rats! According to this page the Ninja V will also only support 1080p60.

    Still, you might want to contact Atomos to see what they say.

    I'm looking for live view. I shoot a lot of low footage (cars/trucks) so having a remote monitor on top of my Ronin is nice. So without a live view it's tough. I mean 60FPS still lets me slow it down, but 120 gives me a lot smoother B-Roll and looks even better. I've been searching for hours and just can't seem to find one... maybe they just don't make one and 120FPS is a novelty in the film world?

    The atomos IS on the list of things to buy especially since that Z6 will take advantage of RAW recording (if not now, eventually). But im no where near the point where i need that raw footage.
