Monitor mounting options for HD110u

I just purchased the SmallHD DP1 and I'm wondering what sort of mounting options I have. I have found it surprisingly hard to look for the accessory arms so I must be missing something. I'd like to have some options for mounting the monitor, one for mounting it on top of the camera and having the ability to swivel and tilt the monitor as needed and another option (which might be more challenging) to have a bracket that mounts on my tripod. I'm not sure if such a bracket exists or not.

What ideas do you guys have?

I have the same monitor and tried two solutions.
- A shoe-mount (which I had from a previous monitor) but it makes the camera very top heavy on the tripod. And the camera handrest also bends a bit while touching the monitor. Not good at all for safetly and quallity pictures.
- So I use my Bebob Leo bracket instead which places the monitor left from the camera.

Do you have any information or a link for this Bebob Leo bracket? Sounds interesting.

Bebob stopped producing these LEO brackets a few years ago unfortunately.
They are great tools though.

Thanks guys, I ended up getting the iKan 10" articulating arm, a very well made and sturdy arm! I can't believe how much cheaper it is than the Noga arms!
