WHat external monitor do you use with the GH2/3?

My aging eyes need a bigger, sharper screen for focusing when using my GH2. What do you use for external monitoring?

I'm using my ipad via bluetooth when I need a bigger screen. Haven't needed it much however as I find the camera easy to focus with the evf.

Bill - are you using expanded focus? GH2/3 shooters tend not to use monitors because expanded focus is so good. And, as Duane suggests, the wi-fi mode on the GH3 is a great alternative to the expense of a monitor.

If I were going to buy a monitor, though, the best quality and value for the money are the SmallHD DP6 or a 5.6" Ikan, but if you're shopping based on price alone, you may want something like this http://www.amazon.com/Professional-LILLIPUT-569GL-50NP-Monitor-Functions/dp/B00AF61E40?tag=battleforthew-20.

Cheers, and good luck with your decision.
