The SmallHD 501 and 502 monitors have been really popular with handheld gimbal stabiliser operators and FS5 and FS7 owners. The units are really well built, feature incredible resolution and colour reproduction as well as a vast array of image monitoring functions such as Peaking, False Colour, Zebras and are the only monitors in this price range to support 3D LUTs for monitoring.
SmallHD have some great news for shooters who are new to the world of 3D LUTs. The innovative US-based manufacturer just announced that they are giving away a free set of colour grades that recreate the unique look of seven different iconic films, and are also publishing multiple video tutorials explaining how to get the most out of these looks during both production and post production—all 100% free of charge.
SmallHD have just released details of their latest firmware update for their brand new monitors - the 500 series, including the HDMI based 501, and the HDMI/SDI SmallHD 502. Firmware 2.0 allows users to downstream a custom Look Up table to another monitor - such as a directors monitor or another monitoring device, in addition to HDMI/SDI cross conversion on the 502 model.
