Question about Accessory Shoe

Sorry for this stupid question.

I'm going to purchase the Varizoom VZ-TFT7U 7-Inch Widescreen Color LCD Monitor Kit. It looks like the monitor attaches to the XL2 Accessory Shoe via the VZ-Shoe that comes with the kit.

From time to time I will be using the VL 10LI light that also connects to the XL2 Accessory Shoe. My question is: Is there an adapter that would allow me to mount both the monitor and the light at the same time? Am I missing something?

Thanks...

Just about any photo / camera retailer (Ritz, Wolf etc.) will sell you an accessory bracket with two or three shoes on it.

Hey Tim--

I bought an NRG accessory tri-mount from B & H. I could easily mount a shotgun, cam light, and or a portable monitor. Works great!

Yep

That's exactly it! I could mount my shotgun, on-cam light, and the kitchen sink. (If I had an lcd monitor, I'd mount that instead :(
