The SmallHD 501 Full HD 5" On-Camera Monitor is a lightweight, 5", 1080p field monitor with color capabilities that rival OLED technology, with 441 pixels per inch. This monitor is able to reproduce 100% Rec 709 color (85% NTSC Color Gamut). Navigate by simply moving and clicking the joystick, allowing easy access to SmallHD's "pages" UI, which can be customized with any feature, including custom looks (3D LUTs). With pages set up, the 501 is an invaluable on-set tool for quickly spot-checking your shot for problem areas, as well as using LUTs to identify new creative options on the fly. Zoom into your image at any time by pressing "up" on the joystick, click to switch to pan mode, and press the back button at any time to reset. 

NOTE: The 501 Monitor is compatible with the SmallHD Sidefinder EVF (sold separately).
