8" monitor to 7D


so I have this 300$ eBay 8" monitor that I want to attach to my 7D. I'm using a cine-city shoulder rig with rods, ff, matte box, half-cage, etc. I don't want to attach it to rods or to the cage because it's way too front-heavy.

So, I'd like to rig it to the hot shoe of my camera and I would also like to add a magic arm to put the monitor right in front of my eyes.

Any options? I would like to go cheapest way possible.. I've seen chinese magic arms that looked not too cheap, but I don't think they are hotshoe compatible.


Edit : forgot to mention.. I already have the hotshoe - ballhead - 1/4 thread thingie.. but I need something to really deploy the arm further.
