Device to attach phone to act as tilt screen (with Flucard)

As we are all aware the K3 doesn't have a tilt LCD screen..

I was wondering if there is a device that will attach to the camera or tripod that allows you to clip your phone to it, allowing for full articulation when connected to the camera via the Flu-card.. Basically a pseudo tilt screen?

??

It may be simpler to use a field monitor via HDMI, if all you want is an articulated screen, instead of bothering with a phone, Flucard, WiFi etc etc ...

You could put this on your tripod, but a field monitor would be cheaper and more rugged.

I bought one of these for exactly the reason you described. I appreciate it's Amazon UK, but I'm positive you'll find it on Amazon.com.

I already have various mounts to attach it to, both for on and off camera. The bracket I bought will attach to any standard tripod screw mount.

Great. Thanks for the tips.. A monitor didn't even cross my mind but seems to be the better solution, especially as the battery in my cell phone depletes quickly.
