The 5-inch SmallHD FOCUS is a lightweight on-camera touchscreen video monitor designed for use with small, low profile camera set-ups. The monitor’s battery has the ability to power a camera while in use to extend your camera’s run-time. With 800nits brightness and HD resolution, the FOCUS provides visibility even in bright daylight allowing you to refine your composition, focus and exposure to take your production value to the next level.
Ultra-Bright 5-inch HD Display
Designed to make shooting great footage easy the monitor’s 5-inch IPS LCD screen has an 800nits brightness with a 1280 x 720 HD resolution and a 160° viewing angle for accurate framing and precise focus even under direct sun.
Correct Colour Representation
The monitor can display 10-bit colour and has a higher pixel density than a retina display. This gives you the ability to capture accurate colours and perfect focus to minimise extra work in post-production and be confident you’ve got the shot.
Auxiliary Power Out
The FOCUS’s pass-through power function means you can recharge your camera with the monitor’s NPF style battery (sold separately) with a camera specific battery adapter cable (sold separately), extending your camera’s battery life by about 2-3 times. Perfect for filming long events and remote shoots on-location.
The monitor attaches to the camera’s shoe mount with the included FOCUS Tilt Arm that allows you to adjust the viewing angle with 180° of vertical articulation. You can still mount accessories such as a microphone, LED light on the additional cold shoe on the tilt arm so you don’t sacrifice an accessory shoe by mounting the monitor.
Intuitive User Experience
An intuitive GUI called Swipe OS ensures incredibly simple navigation. You can zoom into the frame for critical focus with a pinch gesture, and take advantage of a range of tools and focusing aids such as Waveform, False Colour, Focus Peaking, Focus Assist, Zebra and Pixel Zoom.
A simple connection interface makes it easy to connect the monitor, with a single micro-HDMI input, micro-USB port for camera control, and an SD card slot that lets you load custom LUTs, software tools and upgrade the firmware. The 3.5mm port allows you to connect headphones for real-time audio monitoring even if your camera doesn’t have a headphone jack.
Compact and Lightweight
The SmallHD FOCUS 5-Inch Touchscreen Monitor boasts a lightweight design and portable form factor that doesn’t add a huge amount of bulk when mounted over the camera, making the on-camera monitor an attractive option for DSLR and mirrorless video shooters.
