The 502 has been a workhorse for me until I upgraded to the larger 702 Bright. The form factor of the 5″ display is a sweet spot for many users looking to keep the weight down on rigs and gimbals.
The 502 Bright only weights 9.4oz compared to 17oz of the 702 Bright. This is almost half the weight! Every ounce makes a difference on a gimbal for the operator.

The 502 ships with the updated OS3 software that features real-time 3D LUTs, Scopes, Waveform, False Color, and Focus Assist/Peaking, premium tool set and Page Builder operating system.
SmallHD has a kit special for a limited time that saves you $300 on all of the above including a tilt arm, SDI cable and a dummy battery with D-Tap cable all in a hard case. The kit price is $1299 (regular $1599)
I wondered why SmallHD took so long to bring the 502 bright to market. The only other option was the expensive Ultra Bight 503 ($2499). This is a great addition to the bright line at a fair price.
SmallHD also introduced a limited edition black version of the 702. Same features only in an all-black frame.
