SmallHD has launched Focus 7, a new seven-inch on-camera model that features a 1000 nit display and which offers dual battery slots. The Focus 7 has a 1920x1200 pixel resolution which equates to 323 pixels per inch of the 16x9 display, and can accept footage of up to 4K in 30p.

Designed with a pair of mounts for Sony L-Type batteries and the ability to power the camera via an optional battery adapter cable, the Focus 7 allows batteries to be swapped out during recording. The monitor offers full size HDMI input, a 3.5mm headphone socket and SD card storage. SmallHD says the screen has a viewing angle of 160-degrees, so it is able to be comfortably used by more than one person at a time.

The monitor runs the company’s OS3 software that allows users to customise tools, pinch to zoom, to desqueeze anamorphic footage and view waveform, vectorscope and histogram displays. LUTs can be loaded via the SD card slot or the USB port.

The SmallHD Focus 7 is available now, and costs $699. For more information see the SmallHD website.
