SmallHD 502 Bright overview

  • 1Description

Based off the original 502 monitor, the SmallHD 502 Bright On-Camera Monitor brings a bright 1000 cd/m² panel to the compact platform. While the 5" display is bright it doesn't sacrifice resolution, yet it won't overwhelm a DSLR or mirrorless camera if secured to the accessory shoe. The 1920 x 1080 panel is sharp and can be used to check critical focus and exposure. The wealth of monitoring tools included with this monitor are easily accessible using the innovative PageBuilder OS which utilizes customizable pages to cycle through monitor inputs and outputs, as well as your favorite tools.

The unibody aluminum exterior keeps the monitor durable yet lightweight, while also acting as a heatsink for the internal electronics. A bumper is included for further protection. At the rear of the display you'll find the SDI and HDMI I/O. Having two of each port allows for cycling two different signals, cross conversion, or sending a signal downstream to another monitor, switcher, or wireless accessory.

PageBuilder OS
PageBuilder OS is an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that puts all the advanced functionality of the monitor at your fingertips. Rather than have confusing menus, this GUI allows you to selectively apply monitoring tools such as waveform, vectorscope, multiview, LUTs, and focusing aids on different "pages". These pages can be easily flipped through using the joystick. The buttons on the front panel can also toggle monitoring tools on and off for each page.

    SmallHD 502 Bright reviews

    502 Bright On-Camera Monitor is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Owned the 502 Reg, This is much better... I was very excited about the 502 when I purchased it years ago. After several attempts to rig it as my main monitor on the Sony FS7 (no loupe, just this monitor) I realized its just not bright enough for most real world documentary situations. I continued to buy SmallHD products. First the 702 Bright for a wireless directors monitor. I kept thinking - I wish they would make a 502 Bright. And here it is. I purchased it in lieu of the newer 503 UltraBright in hopes that later on I may shift this to my gimbal setup. All in all this is a monitor bright enough for almost all documentary field applications. I do wish they would of properly sealed the SD card slot and some other open ports for when the rains come. But for several thousand less than the 503 this is is great piece of gear.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to get a good one First unit had a defective HDMI-IN port. Image would flicker in and out. Tested with several cables and two different sources to confirm the monitor was faulty. Returned for an exchange. The new one’s HDMI port was rock solid, but the screen had a defect. Along the left side was a thin strip of image from the far right side of the image. Just put in a request for another RMA. Fingers firmly crossed.
