Hello, I just wanted to ask if anybody uses a second monitor bolted to the back of their rig ( opposite the main one )I ask because I do a lot of tv work and I think a second monitor would be good for don juan ( so I can look where I'm going whilst not having to constantly look over my shoulder ). Does anyone do this? could I bolt an LCD monitor easily to a tiffen Ultra sled without too many modifications?

Any ideas would be very welcome!

Cheers

Marty
