The new 5-inch on-camera monitoring standard. 

 

1080p Full HD Resolution

HDMI Pass Through

Incredibly Light and Durable

Best-in-class 3D LUT integration

19mm thin & only 198g light

Optional Sidefinder EVF Support

The sharpest 5-inch Full HD 1920x1080 on-camera monitor in the world.

The SmallHD 501 on-camera monitor features a Full HD, 1920x1080 LCD display. With a pixel density greater than than the iPhone 6, the 501 is the sharpest 5-inch camera-top monitor in the world. As far as colour and contrast is concerned, 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. It’s 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.

Processing power with a desirable form factor.

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 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.

Easy 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.

The goal when designing the user interface behind the 500 Series, was to create a powerful and flexible system that’s easy to learn.

 

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. 

Flexibility and ease-of-use are taken to the next level with the 501’s bluetooth remote. By mapping the physical interface and functionality of the 501’s joystick to a bluetooth remote, shooters will be able to interface with the monitor without physically touching the monitor.
