Introducing NA-502B-H

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.

Exposure Tools

Exposure Assist (False Color)

This overlay mode "paints" areas of the image that have reached a certain brightness value allowing the shooter to see what parts of the image may be over or underexposed. The colors used to show these luminance values can be customized as well.

 

Zebra

A slightly simpler version of the Exposure Assistant this tool "paints" areas of the image with a stripe pattern when they reach a pre-set brightness value allowing you to quickly see areas that may be in danger of being over or under-exposed. You can run two zebra overlays at once allowing you to monitor both highlights and shadows simultaneously. This tool does not change the underlying color of the image on the display making it a less obtrusive option than False Color overlays.

Waveform

The waveform shows you the brightness of the image as a map, matching the screen from left to right. This tool can also be set to RGB mode in which case it monitors Chrominance (Color) as well as Luminance (Brightness). The RGB and RGB Parade modes will also help judge color balance (i.e. white balance), especially useful to underwater shooters.

RGB Parade (Histogram)

This tool shows an RGB Luminance Histogram that allows for easy judgement of each channel and the overall image's exposure.

Focus Tools

Pixel Zoom

Zoom in on any page by simply pushing the joystick up. This allows for accurate judgement of critical focus.

Focus Assist

This mode highlights the sharpest areas of the image with an assignable color. This allows for quick an accurate judgement of focus without having to zoom into the image.

Peaking

This is a more subtle version of Focus Assist that does not change the underlying image as much yet still shows the outline of the sharpest parts of the image in an assignable color.

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.

How long will it take for my order to arrive after I make payment?

That depends on where you live and whether we have an item in stock or not. While we do have many items in stock, we don't carry everything. If you need an item in a hurry, it's a good idea to contact us and find out if your item is in stock.

If we have it in stock, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment, or you can pick it up. If an item is not in stock, we'll need to order it from our suppliers, which means it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your door (usually closer to a week).

Sometimes delivery can take longer, if our manufacturers are out of stock, for example, but this is unusual - we let customers know as soon as possible if something like this happens.

Update 18/12/2020: There are some production delays at present that may increase wait times on items like housings. We apologise for the inconvenience. If there are any delays with your order, we will communicate this immediately.

When you buy something from us, the price is literally exactly what it says on the tin.

If you buy something from an overseas supplier, that is most definitely not the case. While the product might seem like a great deal on screen, it's important to understand customs and import costs.

In addition to the ticket price on an overseas purchase, whatever the exchange rate is on the day (this can fluctuate wildly - trust us, we know), there are also tariffs, GST and border processing fees. This can easily add upwards of 25% to the ticket price. Items costing over NZ$1000 also incur import entry transaction fees.

In addition to these extra costs, Customs clearance can also cause delays. Sea Tech has been importing for years - we've got this down to a fine art, and we've built relationships with customs that help our items clear quickly.

By buying from Sea Tech, you avoid all the headaches, delays and extra costs. We handle all this stuff for you, so you don't even have to think about it.
