Technology Guides

Daylight Viewable Touchscreen

Bright enough to see. Sharp enough to focus.

DISPLAY

  • 2-3x brighter than most camera LCD screens
  • More pixels per inch than an iPad with Retina display
  • Incredibly simple touchscreen navigation

Auxiliary Power

Use the FOCUS to power your DSLR or mirrorless camera.

The downside to shooting with DSLR or mirrorless cameras is often battery life. The FOCUS provides auxiliary power out; allowing shooters to power their camera with the attached Sony L Series battery (extending run-time as much as 4x).

Convenient Mounting

It’s time to give tilt-a-whirl.

TILT ARM

  • Allows the FOCUS to tilt 180 degrees for viewing convenience
  • Includes a shoe mount of its own for accessories like microphones
  • Secure and lightweight mounting via shoe adapter or ¼” 20

Access To Professional Features

Introducing Swipe OS: a touch of genius.

Waveform, False Color, Focus Assist, 3D LUTs, and Pixel Zoom are just a few professional software tools at your finger tips with the SmallHD FOCUS.

LED vs. OLED

The Internet is full of LED vs OLED debate. But most of the time, they’re only related to big, 50"+ displays. Which is great, but what about when it comes to small, professional handheld or camera-mounted displays – what should you get… LED or OLED? SmallHD’s Focus has already proven itself as a trustworthy, lightweight, on-camera LCD monitor that’s at a very affordable price. With their addition of an SDI model and two new OLED versions, you may be in something of a quandary. Let’s take a look at the main differences between the two panel types:
