While using a battery grip with your DSLR or mirrorless camera, you will not be able to power the camera with the FOCUS monitor. The faux battery adapter cable used to supply the camera with power is designed to fit the single battery slot that’s native to each camera body. If you like using battery grips, our suggestion is to continue using the grip to power the camera and use a Sony L Series battery to power the FOCUS monitor.

Burn In Policy: Burn in/ Image retention is when an image basically gets stuck on a monitor panel, this is most common in OLED / Plasma / CRT displays but it can happen on LCD displays as well. Image retention is the reason screen savers were created in the first place. This is still a concern today especially with SmallHD’s OLED products. To avoid burn in you should try not to leave the same image on the monitor for an extended period of time- even something like frame lines can burn into your monitor. Burn in is Not covered by warranty policy. Repair Policy for monitors over 2 years old:
