SmallHD 503U Overview

  • 1Description

The SmallHD 503 Ultrabright Value Bundle offers a monitor kit that includes an ultrabright monitor, sun hood, BNC cables, microfiber cleaning cloth, and an 8GB class 10 SD card. The 503U monitor features 1920 x 1080 native resolution and is well suited for use on exteriors and interiors with or without the included hood. The increased brightness also makes the monitor capable of displaying HDR images. It features SmallHD's well-known PageBuilder OS.

The sun hood protects the monitor from harsh direct light, the included cables enable connecting you monitor to a camera source or outputting to a monitor, and the cleaning cloth helps keep the touchscreen clean from fingerprint buildup.

  • 503 UltraBright On-Camera Monitor

    If your video or cinema camera has a monitoring LCD that easily washes out in bright sunlight, the SmallHD 503 UltraBright On-Camera Monitor, with its 2200 cd/m² bright backlight, can be your solution to this environmental difficulty. The 5" 1920 x 1080 LCD provides a sharp image, ideal for focus pulling and image analysis on set and in the field. Another advantage of the high-brightness panel is the monitor's ability to preview HDR content. HDR preview extends the display's dynamic range to portray a greater range of brightness in the image.

    The 503's form factor is at home on mirrorless cameras and smaller cinema cameras, though it is equally effective on larger cameras as well. A unibody aluminum exterior keeps the monitor durable yet lightweight, while also acting as a heatsink for the internal electronics. Further adding protection, the LCD panel itself is topped with a layer of optically bonded Gorilla Glass, notable for its transparency and toughness. The optical bonding process ensures that blacks are not washed out while simultaneously reducing the harshness of reflections.

    On the sides of the display are the SDI and HDMI I/O. Having dual SDI ports allows for A/B viewing of two different SDI signals, or the secondary port can be assigned as an output for sending an SDI signal downstream to another monitor, switcher, or wireless accessory. All the functionality of the monitor is available via the PageBuilder OS, which provides advanced functionality with a simple and efficient graphical user interface.

    PageBuilder OS
    PageBuilder OS is an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that puts all the advanced functionality of the 503 UltraBright 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.
    ColorFlow 3D LUT Processing
    To keep your images consistent from production through to post-production, ColorFlow allows you to import 3D LUTs and display the treated image side-by-side with the untreated image to correctly gauge exposure while visualizing what is being recorded by the camera. Side-by-side preview can also be used with the HDR preview function. Separate LUT-treated images can be sent downstream over SDI and HDMI so you can have the 503 UltraBright display a log image or LUT-treated image, while the director or client monitors connected to the outputs can receive images treated with a different LUT. An image capture function saves a still frame from the incoming video stream onto an SD card, and records the applied 3D LUT for post-production reference.
    On-Set Problem Solving
    PageBuilder OS has a dedicated "Output Preview" page which allows you to apply LUTs and other image adjustments specific to the output signal from the monitor. Whether you have your camera connected to the HDMI or SDI input on the 503 UltraBright, you are not limited by that protocol; the 503 UltraBright cross-converts to ensure compatibility with downstream hardware.
    HD Scopes
    Fill the screen with up to three simultaneous scopes including waveform, vectorscope, and histogram, while still being able to observe the camera feed.
    Exposure Tools
    Exposure Assist supports both ARRI- and Spectrum-based false color, with built-in IRE guides for reference. Utilize 2x Zebra to warn you when reaching a brightness level of your choosing. This is great for matching exposure across shots and cameras.
    Customizable Focus Assist and Peaking Tools
    As recording resolutions increase, so does the importance of focusing precision. With Focus Assist, you can highlight the areas that are in focus with a bright color. These highlights are easily visible on the fly for quick focus confirmation. Focus Peaking increases the sharpness of the image for a subtler focus confirmation without the need for bright outlines. The color and intensity of these tools are adjustable to fit your preference.
    Versatile Frame Guides
    Select standard markers and safety areas that can be overlaid on the display as lines or matte overlays, with custom opacity level and colors. Default aspect ratios include 4:3, 1.85, 2.39:1, 16:9, and Custom (user-selectable).
    Power Options
    Separately available DV, V-mount, or Gold mount battery plate can be attached to the rear of the display. A mounted battery can power the monitor, as well as attached accessories, through the 12V LEMO pass-through connection.

SmallHD 503U Reviews

503 Ultrabright Value Bundle is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low quality gear This is my second SmallHD screen and its arrived with a faulty Lemo power input. I will have to send it back. Few years ago I had another similar unit and it had a broken power input on the second shoot. The connector just fell in the body. This one seems like a beautiful design but come on guys, I’m not buying this stuff again.
