New 5″ Monitor from SmallHD ‘The SmallHd 502’

New 5″ Monitor from SmallHD!

SmallHD have just launched the new SmallHd 502 monitor, which is a 5 inch full HD field monitor. Designed to be a direct competitor with the TVlogic VFM-058W and the others in the range, the new offering from SmallHd looks like a force to be reckoned with. With all the functionality and robustness of the DP7 series with a smaller FullHD screen the 502 is perfect for use with hand held steady cams such as the Movi and DJI Ronin, as well as a reference monitor for more traditional rigs such as tripods and sliders.

We will be getting our hands on the 502 towards the end of march and a full review will follow.

There is no confirmed price as of yet, and the lead time for the first batch is still unknown, although i would imagine it will be launched somewhere around NAB

5″ inches of Full HD

The SmallHD 502 on-camera monitor features a Full HD, 1920×1080 LCD display. With a pixel density greater than
the iPhone 6, the 502 is the sharpest 5-inch camera-top monitor in the world. As far as color and contrast are
concerned, the 5-inch display is again, best-in-class. The 502’s LCD display is able to produce 85% NTSC Color
Gamut (greater than the REC. 709 color standard), rivaling the color capabilities of OLED technology.

Simple and powerful.

The 502 makes signal processing simple. Using a custom-built processing engine, the 5-inch field monitor
will accept nearly any resolution and framerate from nearly any camera.

Building upon the 3D LUT functionality of the DP7-PRO Series, the 502 will allow shooters to apply an even
higher resolution, more accurate 3D LUT, in real-time. The value of a tool with this much processing power
is amplified when you consider its extremely low profile and compact size.

Compact size, without sacrificing strength.

The 5-inch display on the 502 on-camera monitor is big enough to display 1080p well, and small enough to not weigh you down.

Its size, weight and resolution make it an attractive option for DSLR shooters looking to attach it straight to the camera, while
its robust mounting options and durability allow the display to be used on a gimbal or shoulder rig without adding bulk.

Pure joystick integration.

The joystick on the 502 on-camera monitor allows shooters to experience the flexibility of a touch screen display without all the downsides. An integrated joystick prevents smudge marks on the screen, camera jiggle during operation and reduces the overall cost of the device significantly.

Flexibility and ease-of-use are taken to the next level with the 502’s bluetooth remote. By mapping the physical interface and functionality of the 502’s joystick to a bluetooth remote, shooters will be able to interface with the monitor without physically touching the monitor.
