The sharpest and smartest 5-inch Full HD on-camera monitor in the world.

5-inches of Full HD.
The SmallHD 502 on-camera monitor features a Full HD, 1920x1080 LCD display. With a pixel density greater than the iPhone 6, the 502 is the sharpest 5-inch camera-top monitor in the world. As far as color and contrast are concerned, the 5-inch display is again, best-in-class. The 502's LCD display is able to produce 85% NTSC Color Gamut (greater than the REC. 709 color standard), rivaling the color capabilities of OLED technology.

Simple and powerful.
The SmallHD 502 makes signal processing simple. Using a custom-built processing engine, the 5-inch field monitor will accept nearly any resolution and framerate from nearly any camera.

Building upon the 3D LUT functionality of the DP7-PRO Series, the 502 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.

Compact size, without sacrificing strength.
The size of the SmallHD 502 hits a sweet spot for tack-sharp 1080P viewing while remaining extremely space-efficient.
Its 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.

Pure joystick integration.
The joystick on the SmallHD 502 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 502'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 analyze 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.

Dual-purpose device.
Highest Resolution EVF + Full HD Field Monitor.
The Sidefinder is a fully featured HD viewfinder with a flip-out 1080p display. It's the brilliant, natural union between the SmallHD 500 Series Monitor and a cleverly designed, patent-pending, EVF loupe. The Sidefinder gives shooters all the benefits of using a field monitor AND an EVF, without compromising speed, agility, or quality of the image. The Sidefinder represents the highest resolution EVF and the highest resolution 5-inch on-camera monitor in one device.

Crisp, clear image.
The foundation for precision.
At its core, the Sidefinder is a 1920x1080 resolution on-camera monitor. The EVF loupe uses a 1366x768 portion of that display to create a crisp, clear image in a truly immersive environment. The Sidefinder's pixel density prevents pixelization (you can't see individual pixels) when magnified by the optics. In addition, the Sidefinder is equipped with a wide range adjustable diopter (-2 to +4) for a customized focus.

Customizable viewing experience.
Connect with your image. Share your vision.

Adjustable field of view Create a personalized viewing experience by quickly adjusting the field-of-view on the Sidefinder EVF. Choose a wide field-of-view for greater immersion into your shot, or a narrow one to reduce eye strain. At the 40 degree default,the experience is like watching a 60-inch television from 6.8 feet away.

High resolution 3D LUTs
Apply a 3D LUT to your image and share it with others on set using the flip-out 1080p display. Loading 3D LUTs of any format and any size is made easy with the Sidefinder's SD card slot and intuitive user interface. The Sidefinder's implementation of 3D LUTs is best-in-class, capable of displaying high resolution, 17-point 3D LUTs.

Universal mounting.
Affordable mounting solutions without sacrificing stability.

A universal viewfinder requires more than one acceptable mounting solution.The Sidefinder has the most robust list of EVF mounting options currently available.Using a carefully engineered, well-balanced bracket, the Sidefinder allows shooters to attach the viewfinder extremely close to the camera using all the popular mounting solutions (NATO rail, ARRI Rosette, 15mm Rod, and 1/4" 20 mounting holes).

Smarter design, effortless interaction.
Simple solutions for U and I.

By incorporating a joystick + back button, the Sidefinder provides the flexibility of a touch-screen display. High resolution scopes, customizable guides,and 3D LUTs are accessed effortlessly, without having to touch the screen.

The good, the bad, and the unparalleled.
Improving what you've seen B-4.

he Sidefinder isn't SmallHD's first compact, high resolution monitor/EVF viewfinder.The SmallHD DP4-EVF introduced this concept in 2012 and it has remained a user favorite.We've taken the best aspects of the DP4-EVF and added even more flexibility into the Sidefinder.
