I just bought a SmallHD HB to backup my Gen2. In the meantime I thought it would make a great handheld set monitor for those in need (from assistants to directors and even me while setting that piece of foreground in just the right spot)

Has anyone framed theirs with a perfect consumer handle set? What brands might work for a 7" monitor?

I'm sure this has been discussed in the past but it never hurts to look again at what might be new and better.

Will, Those are very awesome, rugged, and cheap. I have a set with a Marshall 7" hi rez Directors Monitor with the Paralinx receiver and an AB plate on the back, all wrapped in a Portabrace that fits the Marshall while still inside the Ikan handles.

The Ikan handles are pretty cool, but they're also kind of heavy. Here's a picture of them with a Tomahawk receiver on the back:

The Ikan lists as Just Released & out of Stock. I've ordered a bunch of pieces from CoolLCD.com that I think will make a nice handle set depending on the final rigidity. In fact it seems to be a more multi optioned solution if it pans out. I'll post some pics when I have it built.
