The SmallHD Sidefinder 501 Monitor-EVF is a fully featured HD viewfinder with a 5-inch flip-out 1080p display. It’s the clever union between the SmallHD 500 Series field monitor and a compact, patent-pending viewfinder accessory. The Sidefinder gives shooters all the benefits of using a field monitor AND an EVF, without compromising speed, agility, or quality of the image. The Sidefinder represents the highest resolution EVF and the highest resolution 5-inch on-camera monitor in one device.
SmallHD Sidefinder 501 Monitor-EVF has a nice viewing experience
Some prefer a viewfinder to have a large image to observe greater detail, and others prefer a small image to reduce eye strain. Everyone else is somewhere in between. The Sidefinder is the first viewfinder to allow users to adjust the virtual size of the image. At the 40 degree maximum, the experience is like watching a 60-inch television from 6.8 feet away.
Furthermore, you can apply a 3D LUT to your shot and see what it will look like after the color grading process, share it with others on set using the flip-out 1080p display. Load 3D LUTs of any format and any cube size via the SD card slot and intuitive user interface. The Sidefinder’s implementation of 3D LUTs is best-in-class, automatically converting all 3D LUTs to a high-resolution 17-point cube before hitting the display.
