SmallHD Focus overview

  • 1Description

Designed as a unified monitoring and power solution for Nikon cameras that use EN-EL14 batteries, this FOCUS Nikon Bundle from SmallHD can slim down your rig, while providing increased usability. The kit is centered around the SmallHD FOCUS monitor. A power output on the monitor allows the included dummy battery to power your camera right off the monitor's battery. An L-series battery along with a charger is included in this kit for powering the monitor and your camera. Check out the features for all the items included in this kit below.

  • FOCUS 5" On-Camera Monitor

    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.

  • FOCUS to Nikon EN-EL14 Power Adapter

    SmallHD's FOCUS monitors have a power output for smaller cameras, and with this FOCUS to Nikon EN-EL14 Power Adapter, you can power your Nikon DSLR camera right off the monitor. Insert the dummy battery end into your camera and connect it up to the FOCUS monitor's output for power. Powering the camera using the montior's battery will result in a simplified power setup and longer shooting times between charges, compared to the standard internal batteries.

SmallHD Focus reviews

FOCUS Nikon Bundle is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Happy with a Couple of Caveats Overall, I'm very happy with the SmallHD Focus. Most folks considering this item are probably interested in using it in conjunction with making videos. I, on the other hand, wanted it as an aid to my still photography with my Nikon D810. In that regard, the unit is just right in terms of size relative to the camera, clarity of the display (yes, even in midday sun), etc. Its tilt arm allows for viewing the screen no matter how low or high you have your camera/tripod set. I'm calling the FOCUS my knee saver. Now, for my caveats: 1) The FOCUS to Nikon Battery Adapter that SmallHD Focus touts so highly only works with a limited number of Nikon cameras. In particular, the adapter is not suitable for the D810 or any other Nikon camera using the EN-EL15 battery. Neither SmallHD nor B&H Photo makes this clear in their description of the Nikon Bundle. One probably still saves money buying the bundle over the bare unit because of the included battery, battery charger, etc. ($499 for the bare monitor package that doesn't even include the required battery!!!!), but it's more than a little disappointing when one opens the package to discover the adapter's limitations. 2) IMHO, SmallHD's customer support is effectively non-existent. Other than a small card accompanying the unit providing only the most rudimentary information, there is no written or downloadable User Manual explaining the monitor or the SmallHD software. SmallHD Customer Support refuses to provide any help with setting up the unit with a particular camera. I can understand punting on esoteric cameras, but the Nikon D810 and similar mainstream Nikon, Canon, and SONY models are hardly esoteric. If you are going to market a $499/$599 unit that costs several hundred dollars more than many competitors' products, at least take a few minutes to post instructions on your website for the optimum camera menu settings for the major camera models.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great screen. but.... I have just finished setting up the screen to run on my Nikon D810 and Nikon D800E and have not fully used it in the field yet. When I got the unit running I had a "Batt Low" status on the screen so after registering the product I removed the battery to the charger. It took almost 12 hours for the charger light to turn green, but when I remounted the battery I still had the "low batt" message. Back to the charger for another 12 hrs with still a "low batt" message. Contacted customer support via email and got a response almost immediately inquiring about charger light and whether I installed the battery correctly. I responded to the message with no response. Two days later I responded again still with no resolution from customer support. I suspect the battery may be faulty. I had to ask customer support for a link to the manual for this device and got an immediate response. The manual is disappointing and is more of an outline of the important setup and function part of the screen with no detail. This lack of detail left me not knowing what the menu options do. They have spent most of their time on color correction and output in the 250 page manual. I find this download to be almost useless. Right now I am giving the unit 3 stars as I find the support to be lacking. I will update this in a month when I have some field impressions of the device.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible battery I'm having the same issue as the other gentleman with the battery. I have been charging my battery all day, it's not charging. I was hoping to use this for tomorrows shoot. I should've looked into it more but all excited about charging up the battery but it's for a lower end camera not for mine.
