So, I've looked into this a little more and I found this video:
Swivi External Swivel LCD Monitor Photography Blog

... looks good and very handy, much like you'd have a fully tiltable/swiveable monitor on some cameras, but quite a bit bigger and with a "sun visor!.
And the company, Based in the USA: http://swiviusa.com/

It isn't as "sharp" as some Lilliput units but I would dare saying that this could do the job very well, especially for those hard-to-focus fast lenses, such as my Zeiss 85/1.4. for portraits (inside) ... and for macro.

For those who are interested in a HDMI-connected external/swivel monitor, here is one at Vistek:

Swivi 5.6" Swivel LCD Monitor On-Camera Video Monitors Swivi - Vistek Canada Product Detail

a bit pricey but I am very intrigued how good this would work on the K5/K7.

Oh! Just as I was seriously looking into this Zacuto piece, I failed to see if this was "orientable" at all.

I'll just go back to Google it some more and see if it does.

The Lilliput seems good ... perhaps a bit too big when going around on unbeaten trails and wet seashores?

But I have to admit that this could be an interesting alternative.

Thanks.

Besides being expensive, how does this work?
I cannot see any "screen" (monitor) in that pic.

Thanks a bunch for the link.

Resurrecting an old thread ... again!

So I got into the habit of resurrecting old threads and this one seems to be quite appropriate for what I am looking for:

A small, orientable external monitor which I could use for taking bird "low shots" without having to crouch low in mud .... is there anything out there resembling what I am looking for?
I mean, Canon 60D has an orientable monitor that does just that.

Any suggestion(s) would be appreciated!

Thanks.
