The SmallHD 5.5" FOCUS Base OLED HDMI Monitor combines the accuracy of an OLED display with the ability to power select DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Viewable even in full daylight, this onboard monitor's 350 cd/m² bright 1920 x 1080 OLED panel is great for pulling focus and features a single micro-HDMI input. SmallHD's Swipe OS leverages the monitor's touchscreen for menu access and control.

Powered by a single Sony L-series type battery (not included), this versatile monitor can also supply power to select cameras when used with a separately available adapter cable. Coupling the touchscreen display with SmallHD's intuitive OS3 you can turn on various monitoring tools like waveform, false color, and vectorscope, as well as focusing aids like peaking, with a tap on the screen. OS3 also allows you to load and save profiles and load custom LUTs. The FOCUS OLED's rubberized plastic form includes three 1/4"-20 threaded mounting points. Additional features include SD card storage, a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack, and a low 5.76W power draw.

  • Supports up to UHD 4K video
  • SD card slot for loading custom LUTs

OS3

Built on SmallHD's intuitive PageBuilder OS, OS3 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.

Micro-HDMI

A micro-HDMI connector is used to display up to a UHD 4K signal.

Camera Power

Instead of powering your on-camera monitor from your DSLR or mirrorless camera and quickly draining the camera's internal battery, the FOCUS monitor allows you to power your camera from the monitor instead (requires optional dummy battery for your specific camera). This output is active even if the monitor is turned off.

Convenient Mounting

The FOCUS monitor secures to your camera using the optional FOCUS Tilt Arm via shoe mount or 1/4"-20 thread.
