Wow, Robert! How much of the HV20 did you have to disassemble and was it hard to wire?

Okay Robert, let us in on what you did !! I seen the first discussion on doing a flip. did run wire to the top of camera internally ?

I just finished a weekend shooting with a cheap SD external monitor, shooting camera upside down, and think I would likely do better with focusing off even the small on camera LCD.
