Canon 6D with Samsung S4 as external monitor

I received from amazon the mount for my Samsung Galaxy S4 and the arm so that I can attach them to my Canon 6D and have an external monitor for videos.

The things that I bought:

1. DSLR Smartphone Hot Shoe Flash Camera Mount
2. Generic 7″ Inch Friction Articulating 1/4″ Hot Shot Connector Arm
3. Micro USB Host Cable Male to USB – less than
4. DSLR Controller from Google Play Store –

You can mount the smartphone hot shoe directly on the camera and you can turn it sideways, but the friction arm gives you total control over the angles that you can shoot and place the monitor. I liked the smartphone mount’s rubberised grip and you can fit any phone not bigger than 5”.

The DSLR Controller app for Android gives you so much better control over Canon’s app plus an intervalometer (I wonder when is Canon going to add this feature)

Next step is to find a cheap and reliable dslr cage and mount all these, together with the external microphone, so that the camera won’t have to support all this weight
