VIDEO 1. SmallHD 502 Monitor Review 



SmallHD On-Camera Monitor

5-inches of Full HD

   The SmallHD 502 on-camera monitor features a Full HD, 1920 x 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 SmallHD-1c-Hardware-Procontrast 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 HD 502 makes signal processingSmallHD-3-Hardware-Pro
simple. Using a custom-built processing engine, the 5-inch field monitor will accept nearly any resolution and frame rate 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 size of the 502 hits a sweet spot for tack-sharp 1080P viewing while remaining extremely space-efficient. Its size, weight, and resolution make it an attractiveSmallHD-6-Hardware-Pro 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 touchscreen 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.



Easy image analysis

   The foundational purpose of an external monitor is to help shooters quickly and accurately analyze the image the camera is capturing (framing, focus, exposure, etc.). As advancing technology provides powerful analysis tools, how the user engages with these tools is often overlooked or neglected. The goal when designing the user interface behind the 500 Series, was to create a powerful and flexible system that’s easy to learn.
