Yes you read that right.


I'm returning to steadicam after a long time away and forced to do so on a very limited budget for now. 


The Master I'm returning with still has it's CRT, and yes I know switching it out needs a new monitor arm since the CRT weighs approximately 4.7 tons.


In the short term I'm considering a super cheap LCD and attaching a battery plate to the back of it so I can get the weight to a reasonable level until I can look at better options.


Which monitors are currently considered decent options in the super low budget bracket, and are there any obvious things I should look out for?


Thanks in advance x
