THE SMALLHD 502 BRIGHT MONITOR
There aren’t enough good things that can be said about this screen. Pixel density (the specification that results in sharpness) now sits at 441 PPI (higher than an iPhone 8). The monitor is capable of displaying 100% of the REC 709 color space allowing for accurate judgement of color and exposure even in bright daylight conditions.
The monitor feels immediately familiar, almost identical in size to your favorite smart phone. A rubberized joystick is used to effortlessly flip through video “pages”. Each page accepts multiple imagine analysis tools, configured by the user for their individual needs.
NAUTICAM NA-502B-H UNDERWATER HOUSING
Nauticam has supported both the 501 and 502 models of SmallHD montiors and continue to evolve and innovate with the new NA-502B for the 502 Bright Monitor. With more cameras offering video capability the need for an efficient and bright external monitor is only growing. With Nauticam's bulkhead system, attaching and detaching the cable system can be done quickly in the field. This means you can easily switch from a still photo setup to a video setup in between dives, quickly removing the monitor and even installing a magnifying viewfinder to the housing.
The NA-502B housing provides access to all monitor controls, and the complete menu system is available in the housing, and at depth.
The Nauticam NA-502B housing features the rugged build quality and advanced manufacturing expertise our user base has come to expect. The joystick navigation system used by the 502 Bright monitor is translated to four directional arrows, a center select button, and the dedicated “back” button. The interface is simple, but elegant, and perfectly suited to the underwater environment.
The form factor of 502 Bright monitor is perfectly suited for an underwater housing, with HDMI / HD-SDI cables nestled between two readily available Canon LP-E6 Batteries that power the monitor.
HDMI and HD-SDI are both supported by a single housing, providing an extremely broad range of camera support in a single underwater monitor system.
NOTE: This housing (17920) comes with an HDMI connection pre-installed. This can be switched or supplemented with an optional HD-SDI cable as the 502 Bright can act as a pass-through monitor with built-in cross-conversion. Unlike previous 502 models the 502 Bright is only available in one configuration that includes both HD-SDI and HDMi so choose the housing model that is appropriate for your camera, i.e. 17920 for HDMI and 17921 for HD-SDI.
CROSS CONVERSION AND PASSTHROUGH
The 502 Bright monitor can also function as a passthrough monitor, passing either HDMI or SDI to a surface monitor. The NA-502B housings feature a second M16 opening that can accommodate another HD-SDI or HDMI cable.
The SmallHD 502 Bright also features a cross-conversion feature meaning an HDMI input from the camera can be converted to an HD-SDI signal by the monitor and passed through a second bulkhead to a surface monitor. HD-SDI can travel over longer distances making this ideal for surface monitoring even from a camera that only features HDMI output. Nauticam HD-SDI Cable Accessories provide a reliable way of transporting a video signal over long distances.
HDMI and HD-SDI (502) are both supported by a single housing, providing an extremely broad range of camera support in a single underwater monitor system.
Highlights in focus edges, taking the guess work out of critical focus.
Extremely useful for judging exposure, pixel brightness is mapped to a color pattern used to see over and under exposed areas.
Available from any video page simply by clicking the joystick up arrow, zooming in to check focus has never been easier!
Right Angle Cable Connector
Provides clean cable routing, and protects the cable from wear and tear at the housing connection.
Joystick Navigation Pushbuttons
The 500 series joystick navigation system is translated to a directional pad on the housing front. Enhanced spacing is provided, making it easy to use, even when wearing cold water gloves.
Vacuum Peace of Mind
A vacuum valve, along with the Nauticam Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System is included as standard equipment. This temperature compensated monitoring circuit with LED indicator proves constant feedback about the water-tight status of the housing. Green means safe to dive!
