The big change from B to C was that the early cameras had the flat door, the II-C has the bulge door with a much better finder system.

The new finder was brighter, had more magnification, and let you unscrew the eyepiece and fit an elbow accessory in between. There's no theoretical reason why a video tap couldn't be custom made for the old finder, but it would be sort of like retrofitting electronic fuel injection on a '51 Volkswagen. At some point, these things become antiques which are better preserved in their original state. Have a look at "Antiques Roadshow" on PBS. Sometimes they tell people things like "Your table now is worth about $650. But if you hadn't re-finished it, it wolud be worth $35,000."

The ground glass in the IIA/IIB is academy sized, 16x22mm and is fixed in place.
The IIC's is scope sized, 18.7x22mm & is interchangable. The same ground glasses are also used in the ArriIII.

Hi Leo,
does that mean if I'm not likely to shoot scope then the 11b would be ok?
