Product Description

Ultra-Sharp 5-inch Full HD 1920x1080 monitor

Improve the production quality of your video with the SmallHD 501 on-camera monitor. Packed with innovative features to help you on-location or in the studio, the SmallHD 501 will change the way you shoot forever.

Its 5-inch Full HD, 1920x1080 LCD display features a pixel density greater than the iPhone 6. These specs enable SmallHD to label it “the sharpest 5-inch camera-top monitor in the world”. 

With such impressive pixel density the 5-inch display is again, best-in-class. The 501’s LCD display is able to produce 85% NTSC colour Gamut (greater than the REC. 709 colour standard), rivalling the colour capabilities of OLED technology.

Compact Size, Solid Construction

The size of the 501 hits a sweet spot for tack-sharp 1080P viewing while remaining extremely space-efficient. Only 19mm thick and weighing a slim 198g make it an attractive option for DSLR shooters looking mount it directly to the camera hot shoe. Its versatile mounting options and durability allow it to also be mounted to a gimbal or shoulder rig without adding significant bulk.

Custom Processing Engine

The 501 makes signal processing simple. Using a custom-built processing engine, the 5-inch field monitor will accept nearly any resolution and frame rate from nearly any HDMI equipped camera. 

Building upon the 3D LUT functionality of the DP7-PRO Series, the 501 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.

Powerful Real-Time Image Analysis

The foundational purpose of an external monitor is to help shooters quickly and accurately analyse 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. 

Professional features such as frame guides, anamorphic de-squeeze, focus assist, peaking, false colour, zebra, custom LUTs, audio meters and much more are available to ensure your day of shooting is efficient and accurate.

Simple, Intuitive User Experience

The joystick on the 501 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. 

The SmallHD 501 Full High Definition monitor is powered by one or two LP-E6 compatible batteries (sold separately).
