smallHD has released a 500 dollar "Control Kit for RED" for its professional on-set monitor Cine 7, which allows the user-friendly control of RED&s DSMC2 cameras via the touchscreen of the Cine 7. The control menu, which appears as an overlay above the camera image, can be used to change camera 7 settings down to the deepest menus via the touchscreen and to control the camera recording. The Cine 7 is connected to the camera via the Ethernet port.

Previously, for the Cine 7, an integrated real-time camera control was only available for the ARRI Alexa Mini (LF) and Amira for a surcharge. Prerequisite is the latest firmware upgrade to the version smallHD OS 3.6.0.
The smallHD Cine 7 has a 1.920 x 1.200 7" large 1.800 nits bright Touch-IPS panel and can be used in sunlight - its color space coverage is excellent with 100% DCI-P3. It has one HDMI and two 3G SDI inputs as well as one HDMI and one 3G SDI output, between which it can cross-convert.

Also on board are a headphone output, an Ethernet port (for camera control) and an SD card slot. SmallHD&s OS3 user interface provides a number of useful functions - for example, filmmakers can display waveforms, scopes and e.g. False Color of their image, draw the focus supported by Focus Assist/Peaking and also adjust the exposure. With the pinch-to-zoom function, the user can easily adjust the settings of his shot. Colors can be corrected using 3D LUTs (look-up tables) via SD card.
