Have any of you ever made a viewfinder monitor for a 16mm camera? Or, can these just be bought somewhere?

If you're talking about a cheap, DIY video assist, this might work...

even the video camera in the setup previously discussed (as opposed to the CCTV cam) can be poked up the rear of that EBM/new SBM's (?) finder to get an image if its lens is wide enough and is not restricted by lens barrels, rubber finder cups etc...

You just have to make a mount for it.
