SmallHD Cyber Monday Sale and DP6 Firmware Update
SmallHD are set to hold a big sale on Monday 2nd December. They will be offering 10% off everything on their site.
This is great news if you’re sizing up a DP7 monitor bundle. SmallHD make some fantastic products, I’m still using their original 5.6″ field monitor – the DP6.
Speaking of which, the DP6 has just been given a firmware upgrade. See the below video for it’s features.
This update is testament to SmallHD as a company. The DP6 was discontinued some months ago, yet they are still supporting current firmware updates to keep past products up to date.
Here’s a list of the added features to firmware version 3.0
- Focus Assist with optional edge colored peaking (red, blue, green, cyan, magenta, yellow)
- 2X Zoom for focus aid
- Anamorphic desqueeze for when working with 2x anamorphic lenses.
- Improved font design
- Focus assist max
- Added DSLR scale option to tools menu (previously available feature that has simply been moved for better menu access)
- More accurate menu scrolling
- Enhanced display feature and added ability to map it to smart key
- Improved image flip
- Renamed scale menu to aspect scale.
- Changed false colors names to exposure assist.
As a DP6 user, I’ll warmly welcome the new peaking feature, more accurate scroll and improved image flip. The former looks very nice with optional colors, and the latter is a bug that was in much need of a fix.
You can download firmware version 3.0 for the DP6 here.
Be sure to check out the SmallHD store on Cyber Monday for their 10% sale.
