The SmallHD Focus Bolt 500 TX On-Camera Monitor is a version of the original Focus monitor with a built-in Teradek Bolt 500 TX for transmitting wireless video to compatible devices. Key features include:

  • Built-in Teradek Bolt 500 transmitter for wireless video

  • Bright touchscreen LCD with micro-HDMI input

  • Camera-top mounting via FOCUS Tilt Arm or 1/4"-20 thread

  • Uses Anton Bauer L-series NP-F976 batteries

Same Focus Monitor. New Internal Wireless Transmitter.The SmallHD Focus Bolt 500 TX On-Camera Monitor builds on the very popular SmallHD Focus monitor by finding room in the housing for a Teradek 500 transmitter that allows for up to a reported 500ft of wireless video transmission. This package does not include a wireless receiver, but works with a Teradek Bolt 500 Wireless Receiver / Bolt 500 XT Wireless Receiver paired with a monitor of your choosing. Alternately, you can rent this Bolt TX with the SmallHD Focus Bolt 500 RX Wireless Monitor or SmallHD 703 Bolt Monitor for a combined monitor/receiver solution. Lastly, if you want a comparable wireless kit without any monitors, head on over to the Teradek Bolt 500 / Bolt 500 XT Wireless Kit.

Bright Touchscreen. SmallHD Focus Bolt 500 TX On-Camera Monitor’s bright, 800 cd/m² touchscreen 1280 × 720 IPS LCD is viewable even in daylight, and attaching the included sun hood makes daylight viewing even better.

Swipe OS Interface. The new Swipe OS system gives you graphical user interface (GUI) intuitiveness with touchscreen navigation. It lets you use the touchscreen to apply monitoring tools like waveform and vectorscope to twelve different “pages,” swipe through different preset pages, and adjust settings, saving you from endless menu diving. The monitor’s OS also allows for 3D LUTs to be applied for real-time viewing.

Camera Setup Integration. The FOCUS’s headphone jack and power output make it perfect for use with smaller cameras. If your camera doesn’t have a headphone jack, this monitor can give you real-time audio playback. Using a separately available power adapter cable, you can increase run-times by powering your camera directly from the included battery mounted on the monitor. See recommended or Q&A sections for full list of power adapters available.

Easy Mounting. You can use the included FOCUS Tilt Arm via shoe mount or the 1/4"-20 thread to secure this monitor to your camera. The Tilt Arm enables 180° of tilt for convenient monitoring, and its cold shoe lets you use equipment—such as microphones, LED lights, and wireless receivers—that’d normally be displaced from the camera’s accessory shoe.

HDMI Compatibility. Do note that the SmallHD Focus requires a microHDMI cable with a somewhat custom-sized plug. We carry separately rentable versions of the required cable in Micro-MaleMicro-Mini and Micro-Micro configurations.
