External monitors have become a pretty necessary tool on set.
While it’s nice to have giant monitors for when you’ve got a decent crew or your camera is built up, there are plenty of times that you just wish you could use your phone as a reliable monitor for a small camera or as a director’s monitor (with certain tools this is possible, but it’s not always an ideal solution).
SmallHD essentially introduced just that today with their new 502 external monitor, that features a 5″ 1080p screen with HD-SDI and HDMI input/output/cross-convert, and it’s powered by Canon batteries. You can check out the intro video by clicking here.
