New lower price on-camera monitors from SmallHD

Written by RedShark News Staff

SmallHDThe new monitors start from $699

Small HD has added to its range of tough, thoughtfully designed on-camera monitors with two 450 nit 720p displays that come at a lower price than the full HD 1000 nit 702 Bright.

We're told that the new displays are highly durable, with shock-mounted screens and an aluminium chassis. They come equipped with tools like Focus Assists, Exposure Assist, Waveform, RGB Parade and Audio Meters.

We think a major strength of the Small HD range is the ability to apply LUTs in realtime, and the new monitors are no exception, with an SD card slot for transferring LUTs so that directors and camera operators can see the effect of applying correction or a look to material as it is being captured or played back from the camera on set.

Users will have access to SmallHD's free 3D LUT collection.

There are two new monitors. The 701 Lite has HDMI inputs and outputs and the 702 Lite has both HDMI and SDI inputs and outputs, with low latency cross conversion between the two.

SmallHD's 700 series monitors usefully accept both Canon LP-E6 and Sony L-Series battery packs in the same battery slot. The monitors will run continuously from a pair of Sony NPF-970 batteries for up to nine hours.

The 701 Lite and the 702 Lite are available immediately and are priced from $699 MSRP.
