23 Jan. 2018 — SmallHD introduces the 502 Bright daylight viewable on-camera 5-inch monitor. The 1,000nit display incorporates the extensive feature set of the 500 Series monitors, while raising the bar on view-ability in direct sunlight.
The 502 Bright displays 100% of Rec. 709 color gamut. The 1920×1080 resolution LCD screen provides full high-definition viewing. It utilizes SmallHD’s latest software, version OS3, which provides false color and waveform tools. The unit also features is a new battery meter and the ability to adjust color computer-free with the SmallHD Color Probe.
For those who prefer to use waveform to compose an image, OS3 features spot metering to an already extremely customizable waveform. The spot meter indicates the exposure level of a particular area of an image without the psychedelic appearance false color can create. It is particularly useful for exposing faces.
Consistent with other SmallHD monitors, the unit is extremely rugged thanks to a milled aluminum frame and a Gorilla Glass protective screen. The 502 Bright has both HDMI and SDI inputs and outputs, with lightning fast cross conversion between the two video formats.
The new 502 Bright weighs just 9.4oz (267.5g), and is 6.4″W x 3.4″H x 1.1″D (16.2 x 8.6 x 2.8 cm). Deliveries begin in February 2018 with an MSRP of $1299.
The 502 Bright is available from SmallHD authorized dealers or SmallHD’s website. For more information, visit www.smallhd.com
