Designed to add professional monitoring tools to DSLR and mirrorless cameras, the SmallHD FOCUS 5" HDMI On-Camera Monitor is bright, lightweight, and features a sharp display. The 800 cd/m² bright touchscreen, 1280 x 720 IPS LCD panel can be viewed in daylight and is driven by a single micro-HDMI input.
Coupling the touchscreen display with SmallHD's intuitive Swipe OS, 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. If your camera outputs UHD 4K over HDMI, the FOCUS will support that input resolution as well as HD and SD. At the rear of the monitor, a single NP-F battery bay accepts a separately available L-series battery for power, while an integrated power output can also power your camera with a separately available DC coupler.
Included with the monitor is a micro-HDMI cable, micro-USB cable, micro-HDMI to full HDMI adapter, cable clips, and a glass screen protector.
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.

Camera Setup Integration
This monitor complements smaller cameras by providing power output and a headphone jack. The power output lets you power your camera directly from the NP-F battery (sold separately) mounted on the monitor, increasing runtimes over the standard batteries of many mirrorless cameras. If your camera doesn't have a headphone jack, the FOCUS de-embeds the audio from the HDMI stream for real-time feedback of audio.
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.
The FOCUS monitor secures to your camera using the optional FOCUS Tilt Arm via shoe mount or 1/4"-20 thread.
