So whether you are a Canon DSLR user, or you shoot your videos with the Sony A7s you can get the best 5-inch monitor that money can buy today.

Pure joystick integration
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 502’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.

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.

Designed with the Sidefinder in mind
The 500 Series monitor is the key component to the SmallHD Sidefinder (the highest resolution EVF with a flip-out 1080p display).
