Well I was checking out the video on getting 8 fps on a D300 without the grip, I came upon this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xQmWPAcaKU What a brilliant idea. I happen to have a pretty nice Sony player, so I gave it a try in my studio. It works great for checking lighting and exposure. Mine has an 8.5" hi res screen, it is so much better than the camera screen, (which is still pretty good). I didn't try it in live view, but I would assume it would work just as well.
