I'm really interested in photography, however, Im a green hand... And I like figures and landscape photography, sometimes make short movies, such as shooting beauties,kids and place of interest. I got a Canon 5D Mark II from one of my friends, then I need an camera-top monitor to insist shooting, the camera should features 5-7 inch, high resolution/brightness, wide viewing angles, light weight('cause the camera is very heavy), image no delay when shooting and also affordable. So please kindly recommend some brands for me. Thanks in advance!:thumbup:

Welcome to the forum. I assume you are asking about a remote control solution for your camera that includes a bigger monitor than the camera has. I have used this DSLR Controller :: Home (http://dslrcontroller.com/) app for Android devices with lots of success on a Nexus 7 tablet. The app is free but you need some cables and dongles, and if you follow the instructions, there is both a wired and wireless remote control. Also if you have a laptop, you can download the Canon EOS Utility from the Canon Website that works with the camera to allow remote control from the laptop.

Yep, that's the way to go. I have the app on two 10" devices and use this tablet to tripod clamp (http://www.istabilizer.com/products/istabilizer-tabarm). Too much weight for the shoe mount adapter that came with the clamp. Tablets and apps provide much more versatility than just a dedicated monitor, wouldn't you think? Helicon is another free dslr controller with the addition of having the capability to automate focus stacking. With an android and a DSLR, the world is your oyster!
