Wish I could buy a super cheap 3" monitor for vblogging, as all I'd want to use it for is framing so 3" would be big enough and I'd love the compact size.

You might want to consider one of the 3.5" monitors that are designed for the Raspberry Pi.

It is completely barebones but supply it with an HDMI feed and some USB power and it'll do the job for you.

I just put it in a cheap phone hotshoe mount and voila, cameras like the GX80 have a front facing blogging screen.

If you want to be posh then you can have it in an acrylic case for a tiny bit more !

Because of its resolution, you're only going to want to use it as a framing and a "is this thing on?" aid but if thats all you need then its adequate for that.

I've used it with Panasonic and Sony cameras so I can't vouch for it with the BMPCC. Its got a fairly low res screen but the Panasonic and Sony scale their output down without a problem but I had some flaky things with a BMPCC and even BM's own HDMI>Thunderbolt recorder so as I say I can't vouch for it but for £12 the worst thing that can happen is you've got a handy little plug in HDMI cable checker.

There are a gazillion sellers so take this one as just an example

Instead of the Pocket of the Micro, why not the BMCC 2.5K MFT? 


As well as the benefits mentioned already, the BMCC MFT lacks an active mount, which rules out the usage of many of the native mount lenses for MFT
