SmallHD recently announced their latest touchscreen monitor, the FOCUS, which can improve your videography workflow by allowing you to swipe through software tools. Aside from the excellent improvements to their interface, SmallHD has also made the screen significantly brighter and more accessible with more viewable angles.
The FOCUS features more pixels per square inch than an iPad with retina display, and it offers wonderfully simple touch screen navigation.
One of the most useful features of the FOCUS is the Tilt Arm. This mount enables users to tilt the screen 180 degrees, ensuring perfect shot composition and lighting from both sides of the camera. This will significantly help solo shooters who need to film themselves on location. The FOCUS also comes with a shoe mount so you can add a microphone to your rig.

The FOCUS will be available for preorder in May 2017 and will begin shipping in June. For more updates on the monitor and its upcoming release, sign up here. (Right now, you can preorder at a NAB special price of $499.)
