    swivel LCD

    A swivel LCD adapted from a device that was used on
    early camcorder that only had a viewfinder. Battery powered
    and uses the A/V output from the camera. Might be handy for someone
    who does a lot of indoor architectural shots.

    That is fantastic. I want one! Would you supply more details.
    Power supply, A/V jack, LCD, wiring etc.
    Would love to get enough info to buy/assemble the unit.

    Thanks

    I bought the LCD setup in the 1990s when the
    Camcorders didn't have LCD screens. It is made by
    Citizen, it is a minature Moniter with A/V inputs
    and takes 4 0r 6 AA batteries, you can take the
    A/V cable that comes with the FZ camera and
    join it to the LCD cable, they also supplied the
    bar that fastens to the tripod screw and the
    swivel head for the LCD, also a hood to shade the
    screen for viewing. Maybe B&H still have them in
    stock.

    It is Citizen Model No.M329-1A, may help in
    a Google search.

    You could use a portable LCD TV like this one...

    Casio 2.3" Handheld TV (TV980) $54.99
    http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Casio...oductDetail.do

    It looks like it has video in and you get a TV to boot!

    I will goto CC on Thursday and look at their portable TV's.

    I understand that there are devices that accept A/V input [from the FZ20 in this case] and transmit the signals to a TV. I Googled and Froogled MSN'd Yahoo and cannot specify it correctly so the search engines can find it

    Thank You

    You want to use the term "RF modulator".

    A/V transmitter?

    Tried the term. Not quite what I need. Want a battery powered 'transmitter' to connect to the AV camera output cable and transmit the picture to a hand held TV. It's the transmitter part that I'm trying to find!

    Thanks

    Uh, how exactly do you benefit from this (external, swivel lcd) since the FZ-15/20 have video out during playback mode only!? My initial thoughts were that this would be cool for over-the-head shots where you can't see the fixed camera's lcd screen, but being that it only displays video out during playback this seems kinda pointless.

    You want a wireless tranmitter to TV? Try searching for "portable video transmitter". Here's a product that I found that looks pretty good...

    You might find other (less expensive) solutions.

    But, again, this would only work for playback (At least that what the manual says. I don't have my FZ15 yet. ), so I don't exactly understand the benefit.
