Hi Guys,

Sometime when doing video on my 5D mk4 I use Canon Connect camera app to monitor video.

Is there a way to somehow attach the phone to my belt or hat or some other body part so that the phone screen stays in my field of view the whole time without me holding the phone? If something like that exists that would make monitoring video easier, leaving my hands free to operate the camera.

Thanks!

Have you tried something like this? With some jerry rigging, I am sure you could attach a cell phone holder.
