Huge Rebates on SmallHD's Most popular monitors.

focus assist PLUS

One of the underlying principles behind SmallHD’s products is that they should greatly improve the operator’s ability to focus a high-definition camera. Increasing resolution is step number 1, as it adds detail to a scene that you wouldn’t otherwise see. In addition, the AC7 now offers one of the most accurate in-monitor focus assist filters on the market:
“Focus Assist Plus”.

Due to demand, we’ve added an even more intense version of Focus Assist Plus called “Focus Assist Max” for those situations where you might otherwise be struggling to see details.

Via a recent firmware update we now have “Focus in Red”, improving even further on our already extremely accurate focus tool:
“Focus Assist Plus”.

In many situations, particularly when shooting in a LOG-based color space, judging proper exposure needs to be more than simply looking at the image. “False Color HL” (High/Low) is the AC7’s built-in exposure meter that ‘paints’ overexposed and underexposed areas in a specific color—similar to a ‘Zebra’ filter but working for dark tones as well.



“False Color HML” (High/Mid/Low) is similar to HL but adds a new zone for Midrange/Skintone values at 55 IRE, plus a green gradient and purple gradient to highlight exposure values above and below the midrange.

Framing guides

The AC7 comes equipped with several “Framing Guides” to help you line up your shot. The options available are Crosshair, Crosshatch, Aspect, and Title guides.

dslr scale

Most Canon and Nikon DSLR’s output signals do not fill a monitor’s screen completely. The AC7’s “DSLR Scale” function enables the operator to quickly and easily fill the full screen with the incoming signal, removing those useless black bars, giving you a larger, more detailed look at the scene.

1:1 pixel mapping

If you need to double check focus, or need a slightly closer look at an element of your scene, “1:1 Pixel Mapping” does the trick when it comes to 1080i/1080p signals, showing you a bit more detail than when the image is scaled to fit the screen.

2x zoom

“2X Zoom” , or 1:2 pixel mapping simply zooms into the image past its native resolution allowing for a very fine look at the details of your image.

anamorphic desqueeze

Anamorphic lenses are often both beautiful and strange. Make them look less strange by using our “Anamorphic Desqueeze” filter. Even works on 2X anamorphics, stretching and cropping to a 2:35 aspect ratio for a 16:9 input (pictured).

monochrome

Have the choice to monitor in black and white with “Monochrome”. Some prefer monochrome while pulling focus because it can be easier on the eyes not having chrominance interfering with the focal plane. Another simple benefit is when shooting in color, but plan to deliver the final product in monochrome, you can avoid surprises in the edit bay.

User-Programmable buttons

Every camera operator, AC or DP has their own methods that allow them to work comfortably; with that in mind we included two user-defined function buttons which can be mapped to instantly switch on or off the effect of your choice, from Focus Assist+ to False Color to 1:1 Mapping and more.

Field-Updatable Firmware

As with all of SmallHD’s recent products, we’ve created a way to add new features to the AC7’s menu system through a simple USB firmware interface. We’ll always be working on software improvements, and as a result, your feedback will directly influence the development of features.

Backlight Adjustment

Simple and novel, the backlight brightness adjustment allows you to choose whether to crank things up for bright, outdoor situations, or turn things back to conserve battery when in a studio setting. (ONLY Available on LCD Version)
