phone as monitor

hello
i have been considering the purchase of an external monitor for my XLH1. On the way to work yesterday the idea hit me .... would it be possible to use a phone or tablet for this purpose.

i am certain that I am not the first one to think of this, but are there any success stories out there?

cheers
KF

The short answer is no. You need a field monitor or atomos recorder.

Kurt, does that decade-old camera even have HDMI out? Not from specs I found online.

That will limit your options for an external HD display to perhaps COMPONENT ANALOG only

Thanks

Not HDMI, but this iOS app works with some wifi enabled cameras and devices: https://www.adamwilt.com/fieldmonitor/index.html

Or this one lets you use it as a computer monitor: https://www.duetdisplay.com
