SmallHD has revealed its first touchscreen HD video Monitor, the SmallHD FOCUS. It’s a five-monitor perfect for small cameras such as the Sony A7SII or Panasonic GH5.
It has a daylight-viewable 800 nit touchscreen, more than double the brightness of most camera LCD screens.
The monitor comes with a Tilt Arm to fasten to the camera’s hot shoe mount and with 180 degrees of vertical rotation, it allows quick monitor adjustments. Included on the FOCUS’ mount is an extra shoe mount for accessories like microphones and video lights.
“Our goal was simple: to bring filmmakers who are limited by space, time, or budget-a tool to significantly increase the production value of their work, without breaking the bank” said Wes Phillips, SmallHD Co-Founder.
Equipped with auxiliary power out, the SmallHD FOCUS allows shooters to power their camera with a Sony L-Series battery.
Waveform, False Color, Focus Assist, 3D LUTs, and Pixel Zoom are just a few professional software tools in the SmallHD FOCUS.
The FOCUS is set to begin shipping around early June 2017. For more information visit SmallHD.com
