Monitor your shots in advanced quality and high style. The 501 is the size of a smartphone and packs a lot of punch. It features a 5" Full HD 1080p resolution display, 1500:1 contrast ratio, 3D LUT support, scopes, 179° viewing angle, and HDMI input and output in a compact, rubberized aluminum housing.

Add the Sidefinder optical loupe and use the 501 as a viewfinder. To go back to full screen you don't need to remove the Sidefinder, but rather just open it to reveal the display.

  • SmallHD 501 HDMI On-Camera Monitor with 3D LUT Support

    SmallHD's 501 HDMI On-Camera Monitor with 3D LUT Support brings full HD resolution to a durable lightweight on-camera monitor the size of a smartphone. The screen packs 441 pixels per inch, providing a sharp clear image on such a small screen. It features HDMI input and HDMI output. With a rubberized aluminum frame, the unit is 3/4" thick and weighs about 9 ounces, so it is light enough to mount to your camera without weighing you down, yet extremely rugged.

    Small HD has developed a menu system designed to be easy to navigate with the built-in joystick. Within the system is the Pages system, which allows you to create and store up to 8 preset configurations. You can easily see the effect of your configurations on the image, swiping between the configurations using the joystick. The 501 supports 3D LUTs, and you can save those as a configuration page as well. It is worth pointing out that you can apply a configuration page setting to either the monitor's screen, the output, or both at the same time. You can also assign a different configuration set up to the monitor's screen and the output. You can mount the SmallHD Sidefinder to the 501 to use it as an EVF, SmallHD Sidefinder not included.

    The SmallHD 501 on-camera monitor features a Full HD, 1920x1080, LCD display, with a pixel density of 441 PPI. The 501'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.
    The monitor sports HDMI input and HDMI output.
    You can apply a 3D LUT to the monitor and still view your video in real-time.
    The configuration system, Pages, allows you to create and store up to 8 presets. Presets can include focus aids, exposure aids, camera metadata, 3D LUTs. Once created, you can navigate between the presets merely by swiping the built-in joystick. You can see up to three presets displayed on the screen at the same time as you swipe between the presets, which is different than having to engage a menu system and trying to remember what the name of the preset means. You can see the effect of your configuration on the video.

  • SmallHD Sidefinder Accessory for 500 Series Monitors

    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°.
