SmallHD Sidefinder Accessory for 500 Series Monitors
Key Features
  • Removable Optical Loupe
  • -2 to +4 Diopter Adjustment
  • Works with SmallHD 501 & 502
  • Accepts Optional EVF Solutions
The SmallHD Sidefinder Accessory for 500 Series Monitors is an optical loupe that attaches to a SmallHD 501 or 502 on-camera monitor to create a flexible, hi-resolution EVF for virtually any camera. The optical loupe mounts on the 501 / 502, which causes the 501 / 502 to resize the image from 1920 x 1080 to 1366 x 768. This keeps the loupe a reasonable size, while still presenting you with a clear image with sufficient pixel density that individual pixels are not visible when used as an EVF. The loupe incorporates diopter adjustment from -2 to +4, which is a generous adjustment range for those of us that do not have 20/20 vision.

SmallHD ACC-500-VF5 Overview

The SmallHD Sidefinder Accessory for 500 Series Monitors is an optical loupe that attaches to a SmallHD 501 or 502 on-camera monitor to create a flexible, hi-resolution EVF for virtually any camera. The optical loupe mounts on the 501 / 502, which causes the 501 / 502 to resize the image from 1920 x 1080 to 1366 x 768. This keeps the loupe a reasonable size, while still presenting you with a clear image with sufficient pixel density that individual pixels are not visible when used as an EVF. The loupe incorporates diopter adjustment from -2 to +4, which is a generous adjustment range for those of us that do not have 20/20 vision.

The loupe features a detachable bracket that features multiple 1/4"-20 mounting holes, and is designed to allow you to attach optional mounting systems such as an EVF mount, 15mm rod clamp, ARRI-type rosette, or a 1/4"-20- mounting arm.

The optical EVF loupe mounts onto the SmallHD 502 or 501, and features a high-grade friction hinge that allows you to turn the Sidefinder into a 5" on-camera monitor without needing to remove the optical loupe, but by just flipping the loupe out of the way.
The loupe incorporates a diopter adjustment from -2 to +4, which accommodates most camera operators that do not have 20/20 vision.
You can adjust the Sidefinder's field of view for approximately 40° (the default setting) to approximately 20°.

Is it not possible to see the RGB parade through the EVF? Seems like an odd design choice.
Asked by: David
You can assign RGB parade to a page within the monitor to view when looking through the viewfinder.

will this work with the blackmagic video assist?
Asked by: Luis
I don't think so, it's designed for use with the small hd 501/502 monitors.

question

Will this work with the Ninja Blade or Samurai Blade?
Asked by: Anonymous
While it may be possible to apply this finder to those ATOMOS products, the Sidefinder is specifically designed for and will work best with the matching SmallHD monitors.
