SmallHD Focus Bolt 500 TX 5" HDMI Monitor

  • focus-tx-2.jpg


The SmallHD FOCUS Bolt 500 TX On-Camera Monitor combines SmallHD's popular FOCUS monitor with Teradek's Bolt 500 wireless transmitter, in one integrated unit. Using the built-in transmitter, the Focus Bolt can send uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2 HD video to a Teradek Bolt 500, Bolt 500 LT, Bolt 500 XT, or Sidekick II receiver, or to a SmallHD FOCUS Bolt 500 RX or 703 Bolt monitor, up to 500' away. But the game changer is that monitor/transmitter fits right atop your camera's accessory shoe using the included tilt-arm, or mount it to your gimbal rig with the 1/4-20 mounting threads.

Display-wise, the FOCUS Bolt 500 TX is based off the same display and I/O as the well-regarded standard FOCUS models. The bright, 800 cd/m2, 1280 x 720 touchscreen IPS LCD panel can be viewed in daylight, and is driven by a single micro-HDMI input. Using the 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. If your camera outputs UHD 4K over HDMI, the FOCUS will support that input resolution as well as HD and SD inputs. At the rear of the monitor, a single NP-F battery bay accepts Sony L-series battery for power, while an integrated power output can also power your camera with a separate DC coupler for Canon or Sony a7 cameras.
