Based off the original 502 monitor, the SmallHD 502 Bright On-Camera Monitor brings a bright 1000 cd/m² panel to the compact platform. While the 5" display is bright it doesn't sacrifice resolution, yet it won't overwhelm a DSLR or mirrorless camera if secured to the accessory shoe. The 1920 x 1080 panel is sharp and can be used to check critical focus and exposure. The wealth of monitoring tools included with this monitor are easily accessible using the innovative PageBuilder OS which utilizes customizable pages to cycle through monitor inputs and outputs, as well as your favorite tools.

The unibody aluminum exterior keeps the monitor durable yet lightweight, while also acting as a heatsink for the internal electronics. A bumper is included for further protection. At the rear of the display you'll find the SDI and HDMI I/O. Having two of each port allows for cycling two different signals, cross conversion, or sending a signal downstream to another monitor, switcher, or wireless accessory.

PageBuilder OS

PageBuilder OS is an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that puts all the advanced functionality of the monitor at your fingertips. Rather than have confusing menus, this GUI allows you to selectively apply monitoring tools such as waveform, vectorscope, multiview, LUTs, and focusing aids on different "pages". These pages can be easily flipped through using the joystick. The buttons on the front panel can also toggle monitoring tools on and off for each page.
