Overview

5" Daylight Viewable Touchscreen w/ Built-in Teradek Receiver

The SmallHD FOCUS Bolt 500 TX On-Camera Monitor combines SmallHD's popular FOCUS monitor with Teradek's Bolt 500 wireless transmitter, all in a single unit.

Using the built-in transmission, 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.

Key Features:

  • Model: MON-FOCUS-BOLT-500-RX
  • Display: 5-inch, 1280x720, 294 PPI
  • Brightness: 800 nits
  • Input: Wireless, Micro HDMI
  • Output: ⅛” Headphone Jack, 7.2v Power
  • Power: Sony L Series Battery
  • Compatibility: FOCUS Bolt 500 TX, Teradek Bolt 500, Bolt 500 LT, Bolt 500 XT Transmitters

What's more is this monitor fits right atop your camera's accessory shoe using the included tilt-arm. An L-series battery kit, cable clips, matte and glossy screen protectors, a cleaning cloth, and an assortment of HDMI cables are included as well.

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 colour, 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 the included available L-series battery for power, while an integrated power output can also power your camera with a separately available DC coupler.

Swipe OS

Built on SmallHD's intuitive PageBuilder OS, Swipe OS 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 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.

Convenient Mounting

The FOCUS monitor secures to your camera using the included FOCUS Tilt Arm via shoe mount or 1/4"-20 thread. The Tilt Arm enables 180° of tilt for convenient monitoring at nearly any angle. A cold shoe on the Tilt Arm lets you secure equipment (like a microphone, or LED light) that would otherwise be displaced from the camera's accessory shoe.
