Is there a way to hook up an LCD screen or any sort of small hd video screen to the Arri BL-3. I have a CEI color tap for the camera but not sure how to attach an hd LCD screen on this camera.

Hi Paolo

 

Can you post an image of the color tap? Because it's on a BL III it might be an old one that only outputs a standard def NTSC/PAL signal.

So either find an on-board camera monitor that has NTSC/PAL input, or use a NTSC/PAL to HDMI converter for the newer monitors or you might 3D print a housing and battery plate to house one of these:

One cool solution is the Z camera E1, which has a micro 4/3 mount and sensor, get a 4/3 to c mount adaptor, plus an external HDMI monitor. The Z camera can record 4k or 1080p video and has a LDC on the back of the camera, the external monitor can be connected by HDMI cable.Also the z camera can transmit image via Wifi!

It looks very cool. Does it flicker? Did you have to put any additional hardware to make it work aside from the lens adapter? Also, does the image fill the entire screen on monitors or does it have black bars on either sides?
