Return monitor advice.

Same with prompter. I have been told that both of these can be regular old composite.
For example I see 4.3 inch monitors on Amazon for $35. I don't care about quality. I really just need to see what is in program. Is there a particular reason I should stray away from going ultra cheap? I'd kind of like to spend my dollars on other gear right now.

Modify the cable to plug into your rig
Tiffen has a great return monitor bracket that adjust to different monitor rods , see the Phantom•V
As far as the return monitor go with the 7" analog again modify the cables to fit your rig and then make a mounting bracket to attach to the top handle of the camera allowing the monitor to sit just above the lens
Hope that helps

I'm getting the idea that the quality of the prompter basically doesn't matter : ) The plan now is to power it from one of the Hirose connectors on my Master sled. Has anyone else done this with a Master sled?
John Perry recommended this one for a prompter:
Don't know if it's worth spending $300 on this or just buying a cheap $80 7".
It'd be nice to be able to buy some inexpensive equipment for once! : )
