SmallHD unveiled its first 7-inch touchscreen monitor, the FOCUS 7. Modeled after the 5-inch FOCUS, it is designed for use with low-profile camera setups. Viewable in the daylight, the FOCUS 7 provides full HD resolution and power output functionality for under $700.

Martin Vann, SVP of Sales and Marketing for Creative Solutions adds, “The new FOCUS 7 is the latest addition to our popular FOCUS series. The line has grown to include integrated wireless monitors with Teradek Bolt technology, as well as OLED and SDI offerings."
The FOCUS 7 on-camera monitor features a 1000-nit bright, 1920x1200 resolution, IPS LCD touchscreen display.
