SmallHD Unveils a 5" Touchscreen Monitor That You Can See Outside

SmallHD's FOCUS HDMI micro-monitor is daylight-viewable.

The FOCUS is SmallHD's new $499 daylight-viewable HDMI monitor, ideal for mounting on top of DSLR cameras. The monitor touts an LCD screen that's 2-3 times brighter than most camera LCDs and features a slew of options we're used to seeing from SmallHD like waveform, false color, focus assist, 3D LUTs, and pixel zoom.

FOCUS is also a touchscreen monitor, so you can swipe through its intuitive menu, and it has a "selfie mode" that allows the screen to "auto-switch" while flipping the monitor in different positions. 

Learn all the details in the video above.  

Tech Specs

  • 2-3x brighter than most camera LCD screens
  • Touchscreen navigation 
  • Auxiliary to power your DSLR

What I'm missing here is, why is it cheaper than the 501 series? I love it btw!
