    So i have a wedding I'm filming this Saturday and really wanted to try out my DIY crane. I noticed it pretty hard to frame with just the back LCD on the GH2 or GF2. So I came up with an idea of using the GoPro hero 3 (Black) and the GoPro app as a "wireless monitor". The app is laggy but if you a great idea what your shooting. Just using an adapter from the hotshoe to gopro and your good. Then ill be mounting an old android phone close to where I'm standing.

    I think my plan for this wedding is to have 14-45mm zoomed tight and the go pro to shoot wide to get two different perspectives.

    What you think?

    I'm going to figure out a way to lower the quality to the phone to enable more steady streaming. has anyone seen anything for this app yet?

    Thanks for looking

    I think the people at the wedding are going to find it deeply confusing :rofl:
