  • Micro-HDMI Input
  • Supports UHD 4K, HD, and SD Input
  • 800 cd/m² 10-Bit IPS LCD Panel

Designed to add professional monitoring tools to DSLR and mirrorless cameras, the SmallHD FOCUS 5" On-Camera Monitor is bright, lightweight, and features a sharp display. The 800 cd/m² bright touchscreen 1280 x 720 IPS LCD panel can be viewed in daylight, and is driven by a single micro-HDMI input. Using the intuitive Swipe OS, you can turn on various monitoring tools like waveform, false color, and vectorscope, as well as focusing aids like peaking, with a tap. If your camera outputs UHD 4K over HDMI, the FOCUS will support that input resolution as well as HD and SD inputs. At the rear of the monitor, a single NP-F battery bay accepts a separately available L-series battery for power, while an integrated power output can also power your camera with a separately available DC coupler. A stand with tilt adjustment is included with the monitor for mounting atop your camera's accessory shoe or on a 1/4"-20 screw.

Swipe OS

Built on SmallHD's intuitive PageBuilder OS, Swipe OS offers the same intuitiveness of a graphical user interface (GUI), though with touchscreen navigation. Rather than have confusing menus, this GUI allows you to selectively apply monitoring tools such as waveform, vectorscope, and focusing aids to up to 12 different "pages". Using the touchscreen, swipe through different preset pages and toggle monitoring tools on or off with ease.

Camera Setup Integration

This monitor complements smaller cameras by providing power output and a headphone jack. The power output lets you power your camera directly from the NP-F battery (sold separately) mounted on the monitor, increasing runtimes over the standard batteries of many mirrorless cameras. If your camera doesn't have a headphone jack, the FOCUS de-embeds the audio from the HDMI stream for real-time feedback of audio.

Convenient Mounting

The FOCUS monitor secures to your camera using the included FOCUS Tilt Arm via shoe mount or 1/4"-20 thread. The Tilt Arm enables 180° of tilt for convenient monitoring at nearly any angle. A cold shoe on the Tilt Arm lets you secure equipment (like a microphone, LED light, or wireless receiver) that would otherwise be displaced from the camera's accessory shoe.

I think I have a solution but I need a confirmation. I have a Focus 5” monitor. It has a 3.5mm outer x 1.1mm inner DC barrel that supports 7.2v output. The Teradek ACE 500 Receiver has a 5.5mm outer x 2.1mm inner DC barrel that accepts 7-17v DC input. If I get a cable custom made with those two sizes, I could power the Teradek from the focus monitor right? I know they want us to buy dummy batteries and Teradek battery plates but this could save room and a lot of money.
Asked by: Casey
The only issue would be interference, theoretically yes that may work except that you would not know if the power of the monitor affects the receiver. Case in point I had a np style battery that powers a Canon 5D with a dummy battery, the adaptor has an output which in turn I powered the monitor, the NP adaptor powered the Camera and the monitor but caused interference with the receiver. But if its only a few dollars its worth it cause of the power issue, but that means a bigger battery to work longer. Either way there is a trade off in weight or time.

Would this connect with an iPhone with FiLMiC Pro?
Asked by: Zane
no this would not, this requires an HDMI video signal, if you are able to get an HDMI video feed from your mobile phone then you can feed this monitor, that is the only way to get a video signal into this monitor

Is this compatible with the sony fs5... Says it supports 120 frames in regular hd, curious what that means about 240 frames??
Asked by: william
This monitor has an HDMI input only. It will work fine with the FS5, however the FS5 only outputs HD at up to 60fps. It does not output 120 or 240fps through HDMI. This is a limitation of the camera, not the monitor.

Does it come with tilt arm? The one on Adorama says every monitor comes with it. But B&H doesn't seem to include it.

No it does not. Literally only the monitor in a box. No cabling, battery, nada.

Does the touch screen work with the GH5's touch focus capability or do we continue tapping the GH5's screen for this?

No the touchscreen on the monitor is a different system. You’ll still be able to touch the camera screen separately, though.
