If you had a J-Bar on it, though, I wonder if one could try to find an HD Stick camera to throw in there?

But truthfully, there really is little reason for an HD tap on most any film camera.

I'm partial to a B/W tap myself, since it's really only for framing, but for some reason looking at the frame off of a super crappy tap helps me notice how I might want to emphasize this or that a little more-- or de-emphasize. Not that you can light off of it, ya know, but moreso that, wow, I am not noticing this enough  maybe I should check that.

I've a pulnix colour tap on my aaton which is ok for framing etc, but since working with an arri with IVS (which is amazing)  it all seems a little old fashioned. The IVS obviously has a load of features I don't need on a BL4...but I would like a tap with the best clarity possible. As you say there may be a simple HD stick camera out there that could be adapted.
