Has anyone else out there tried modifying there sk2 rig by changing the green crt monitor for a full colour 7" monitor.

Ive chatted with the guys at steadicam and they think it can be done but it wont be easy. I will have to the mods myself.

SACHTLER sell this bracket which will replace what i all ready have. And then i was thinking of buying a Marshall sunbright monitor.

I know a guy who can help me with the cabling.

The SACHTLER bracket costs $800 alone. And then im gonna have to fork out the cash for a monitor.
Has anyone else done this modification cheaper. If so i would love to know.

Many thanks

Dan
