The SmallHD FOCUS Bolt 500 TX On-Camera Monitor combines SmallHD's popular FOCUS monitor with Teradek's Bolt 500 wireless transmitter, all in a single unit. Using the built-in transmission, the Focus Bolt can send uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2 HD video to a Teradek Bolt 500, Bolt 500 LT, Bolt 500 XT, or Sidekick II receiver, or to a SmallHD FOCUS Bolt 500 RX or 703 Bolt monitor, up to 500' away. What's more is this monitor fits right atop your camera's accessory shoe using the included tilt-arm. An L-series battery kit, cable clips, matte and glossy screen protectors, a cleaning cloth, and an assortment of HDMI cables are included as well.
Display-wise, the FOCUS Bolt 500 TX is based off the same display and I/O as the well-regarded standard FOCUS models. The bright, 800 cd/m2, 1280 x 720 touchscreen 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 the included available L-series battery for power, while an integrated power output can also power your camera with a separately available DC coupler.
