  • Overview

    The SmallHD 501 5" Full HD HDMI & SDI On-Camera Monitor Starter Kit is a fully featured HD viewfinder with a flip-out 1080p display along with other necessary accessories for this kit. It’s the brilliant, natural union between the SmallHD 500 Series Monitor and a cleverly designed, patent-pending, EVF loupe. The Sidefinder gives shooters all the benefits of using a field monitor AND an EVF, without compromising speed, agility, or quality of the image. The Sidefinder represents the highest resolution EVF and the highest resolution 5-inch on-camera monitor in one device.

    At its core, the Sidefinder is a 1920x1080 resolution on-camera monitor. The EVF loupe uses a 1366x768 portion of that display to create a crisp, clear image in a truly immersive environment. The Sidefinder’s pixel density prevents pixelization (you can’t see individual pixels) when magnified by the optics. In addition, the Sidefinder is equipped with a wide range adjustable diopter (-2 to +4) for a customised focus.

    Groundbreaking. Award Winning
    The Sidefinder and 500 Series Field Monitors won 5 awards at NAB 2015. TV Technology Magazine, DV Magazine, Videomaker Magazine, In Broadcast Magazine and Production Hub all gave SmallHD the high honor of an award for SmallHD's unprecedented new series of products.

    Dual-Purpose Device Highest Resolution EVF + Full HD Field Monitor
    The Sidefinder is a fully featured HD viewfinder with a 5-inch flip-out 1080p display. It's the clever union between the SmallHD 500 Series field monitor and a compact, patent-pending viewfinder accessory. The Sidefinder gives shooters all the benefits of using a field monitor AND an EVF, without compromising speed, agility or quality of the image. The Sidefinder represents the highest resolution EVF and the highest resolution 5-inch on-camera monitor in one device.

    Crisp, Clear Image. - Take The Guesswork Out of Focusing

    • See the details of your image in High Definition through the viewfinder or the monitor
    • With higher sharpness and resolution than iPhone 6, your image remains crisp under magnification
    • A quick adjustable diopter gives you the range of focus needed to clearly see through the eyepiece (-2 to +4)
    • Instantly zoom-in to your image and check critical focus with 2x and 4x magnification via Joystick Zoom.
    • Customizable focus assist and peaking add even more assurance that your shot is in focus.

    Adjustable Field-of-View
    Some prefer a viewfinder to have a large image to observe greater detail and others prefer a small image to reduce eye strain. Everyone else is somewhere in between.

    Now You Have A Choice
    The Sidefinder is the first viewfinder to allow users to adjust the virtual size of the image. At the 40 degree maximum, the experience is like watching a 60-inch television from 6.8 feet away.

    High Resolution 3D LUTs
    Apply a 3D LUT to your shot and see what it will look like after the color grading process. Share it with others on set using the flip-out 1080p display. Load 3D LUTs of any format and any cube size via the SD card slot and intuitive user interface. The Sidefinder's implementation of 3D LUTs is best-in-class, automatically converting all 3D LUTs to a high-resolution 17-point cube before hitting the display.

    Pages of Custom Work Environments
    Substitute traditional function buttons with Pages-the fastest, most convenient way to access your tools. The Sidefinder's use of Pages gives you complete control to organize toolsets exacly how you want them and access them without taking your eyes off of the image. Pages take "presets" to a groundbreaking new level.

    Universal Mounting. - Affordable Mounting Solutions Without Sacrificing Stability
    A universal viewfinder requires more than one acceptable mounting solution. The Sidefinder comes with a solid aluminum mounting bracket that allows shooters to mount the viewfinder extremely close to the camera using any popular mounting solution.

    • 15mm Rod (quick release)
    • NATO rail
    • ARRI rosette (via 1/4-20 accessory)
    • 1/4-20 threads (multiple locations to prevent spin)

    Wireless Control. - Access All Your Tools Without Moving An Inch
    The Sidefinder makes accessing tools even more convenient with the wireless remote. Use Joystick Zoom or flip between Pages without taking your eyes off your shot or even moving your hand. The wireless remote is included with the Sidefinder.
