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:

(Un)limited Power!

Whilst the EVA-1’s viewfinder is great for menu settings and indoor use, some find that it struggles in strong daylight. Many users have been opting for 3rd party EVFs or on-camera monitors, such as the SmallHD Focus monitor, that offer brighter, clearer images and are perfect for framing and focusing.

What's new at NAB 2018?

All the key new products from NAB 2018: Blackmagic Design, Teradek, SmallHD, CoreSWX, Panasonic, Sonnet, SLR Magic, LEDGO, more! Richard Payne, Head of Technology writes... "The NAB Show is the world's largest convention encompassing the convergence of media, entertainment and technology. The general consensus was that despite the crowds around certain stands, attendance might have been lower than previous years. Wednesday and Thursday seemed quieter, so it will be interesting to see if this is proved when the attendance figures are released. You can read our show magazine at your leisure!"

  • Auto-Calibration
    Using the official SmallHD color probe, auto-calibration can be initiated simply by attaching the probe to the monitor via USB and letting the monitor do its thing. Watch our Auto-Calibration How-To Video
  • Customizeable False Color (Exposure Assist)
    Creating a visual, data-driven exposure tool has never been this customizable. Create up to 10 different IRE ranges, with custom color assignments, and start using False Color exactly how you want to.
  • Spot Metering in LUMA Waveform
    Adding to SmallHD’s customizable Waveform tool is the ability to highlight and monitor critical areas of your image. Using a spot meter box with an adjustable size, the targeted area’s data becomes easy to see on the Waveform.
  • Image Gallery Viewer
    Screen captures and images loaded onto SmallHD monitors via SD card can now be accessed in an image gallery. Quickly glance at dozens of frame grabs from a day of shooting, and do so without being connected to your camera.
  • Adjustable White Point
    We’ve added support for the following white points for the desired input space and monitor calibration: D65, DCI-P3, 3000K, 5000K, 5600K, 9300K.
  • SmallHD FOCUS now accepts 4K30
