SmallHD MON-701L overview

  • 1Description

SmallHD's 701 Lite 7" HDMI On-Camera Monitor is a rugged and versatile video monitoring solution. Designed for use in the field and in the studio, the 701 Lite is constructed from aluminum and is covered in a rubberized textured finish for a sure grip. With its 450 cd/m², 1200x800 LED-backlit LCD screen, the 701 Lite is designed for monitoring HD video sources. Connectivity-wise, the 701 Lite has HDMI I/O for connecting to video sources and other downstream equipment. For power, either Canon LP-E6 or Sony L-series batteries can be used, without switching plates.


Page Builder Interface
The highlight feature of the 701 Lite monitor is its Page Builder interface. Using customizable "pages" you can easily transition between different monitoring options with different settings. You can easily see the effect of your configurations on the image, swiping between pages using the joystick.
Focus Assist
Offering peaking and joystick zoom, the 701 Lite monitor makes pulling focus easier. Using the joystick, you can control the degree of zoom as well as move the zoomed-in area with a single finger.
Exposure Assist
To aid in achieving proper exposure, the 701 Lite has built-in tools including waveform, false-color, and zebras. All of these functions can be assigned to various pages for ease-of-access.
LUT Preview
If you are shooting using one of the various log profiles, you can monitor a LUT-adjusted image by importing the desired LUT to the monitor using an SD card. Like other settings, LUTs can also be assigned to their own pages. LUTs can also be sent downstream via the monitor's outputs for viewing by directors, clients, etc.

    SmallHD MON-701L reviews

    701 Lite 7" HDMI On-Camera Monitor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really awesome! I'm really loving this monitor! It has the solid build quality that SmallHD is known for, so I know that if I ever need to play hacky-sack, and don't have a ball, I can just use my monitor (SmallHD did this I their torture tests). And I'm psyched that it comes with the built-in options of using 1 or 2 of either Canon batteries or the big Sony batteries. I'll be using it with my Pocket Cinema Camera for everything from films and commercials to weddings and corporate videos. The screen is bright and the menus are easy to navigate with the joystick. I'm really liking that I can have a big screen to position anywhere that I want it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good The image is amazing. Love the waveform. The focus peaking needs to be dialed down to about setting 2 to be accurate. Anything higher than that was showing eyes in focus, when clearly on my c100mii monitor with the punch-in feature, the eyes were not in focus. False color also could use improving and more colors. 50IRE to 75IRE all looks the same green. Would like more color variation in that range for skin tones. Other than that, love the size and portability. Note: skip the smallhd neoprene sleeve. I read a bunch of complaints the 701/702 didn't fit properly. I bought a Google Nexus 7 Tablet neoprene sleeve (GLE10100) and it fits perfectly and a lot cheaper than the smallhd version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Stellar Value, Assuming You Know What You're Getting This having been a crossgrade purchase from a previous monitor, the SmallHD 501, I have some valuable insight on the quality of this monitor. As my 5/5 rating suggests, this monitor is simply a stellar value for the price. The display is not perfect, but it is still excellent. It is slightly lower in resolution compared to the 500 screens which, in my opinion, is perfectly suited, since this display will generally be viewed from further away, and thus the resolution difference won't be visible. This is a good theory on paper, and I can guarantee it also holds true in practice. I haven't once missed the higher resolution of my 500 monitor unless I had my face within inches of the 701. Also, there's a noticeable shift in hue on this screen. It appears warmer and less magenta, compared to the 500. From some casual tests I've done, it seems the 500 screen is the more accurate one, with this one being slightly warmer than what's truly being captured. Again, a small tradeoff, but in my estimation, totally worth it for the size/price benefit you get here. No regrets. Again, you have to realize the price is heavily discounted compared to the 500 series and even more so compared to the bright series of 700 screens. If you're coming in expecting the 500 screen quality on a larger display, you'll be disappointed (and also you'll be dumb, because that product exists, it's called the 701 Bright, for $1500). So all in all, it is a tradeoff, but it's a tradeoff I expected, and welcomed. Dollar to dollar, you certainly get an amazing value here, if screen size is more important to you than critical resolution and spot-on color accuracy. No regrets here after switching. Thank you SmallHD for offering so many tiers of your products, to make sure every customer can get what they find most valuable. So awesome!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy if you want accurate colour I saw this monitor on sale and thought why not? Having owned and loved the 501 for some time I had high hopes for this monitor. The 501 is accurate and reliable right out of the box and I'd expected the same of the new bigger brother. Sadly I was bitterly disappointed to hook it up to my 5D III to see a daylight shot that looked more like sunset lit by a tungsten light with a yellow filter thrown in for good measure. My 701 is so amber biased its ridiculous. Running the 501 and 701 daisy chained off the 5D so I can view the same image side by side I have to dial the 701 up to 80+ on the blue channel calibration to get it close to the 501 for a normal daylight scene. I raised a support ticket with Small HD hoping that I'd got a bad panel. Again my disappointment continued when I was basically fobbed off and told its just how it is and neither monitor is advertised as colour accurate. Silly me for expecting a monitor described as being a professional tool to be colour accurate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must buy for every Sony Alpha user! I got this monitor to go with my A7S II specifically for in-studio use and not for outdoor use, the build quality is what you expect for what you pay. It feels very solid and can definitely take a beating, it's also very stylish looking compared to other options out there. The 701 Lite has a lot of features... too many to mention here. I especially like the new menu system and joystick control, yes you can buy cheaper field monitors if that's all you need to do but the SmallHD is well worth the extra money considering all the extra features you get with this beautiful little baby.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Monitor I've been using this on still shoots with a medium format back on a technical camera while shooting architecture. It's great to not be tied down to the computer. I can move around quickly and find the shot, show it to my client and move on if we need to, or set up shop. I love the customizable screens, and the grids are great for architectural photography. Top notch monitor! Will be using it on my next video shoot too.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Screen easily scratched Buy this with a screen protector and put it on before you do anything else. The screen is shiny and deceptively gives the appearance of glass. I tried to wipe a small accidental fingerprint from it with a lens cloth; not only was it near impossible to wipe it off, it left a permanent SCRATCH. I wouldn't have cared if the rest of the monitor was cheap plastic, but to make the screen material so cheap that it literally cannot be touched by anything, that is unacceptable and definitely not a good long term investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for GH4 Focus Assist I had my eye on the SmallHD 501 for my GH4 rig but B&H ran a Deal of the Day on the 701 for $500 less. That was a no-brainer... Yes, it's 7 monitor but my eyes are not what they used to be. I also purchased the SmallHD Strong Arm 7 and can swing the monitor in any position to my Honu cage. If money wasn't an issue, the 501 would be a better size but the savings was substantial. Used the difference toward batteries, charger and HDMI cable (none included with the monitor)
