If you're looking to add a Director's monitor feed to your workflow, Camera Motion Research is offering a nice sale on their complete RTR Wireless Director's Monitor Bundle. This CMR Bundle includes a 7" MustHD LCD Monitor, Monitor yoke, RM12 Wireless Video Set with 2 receivers, and the Backbones for the Radian Wireless HD Video Transmitters and Receivers. With this kit, you'll be able to stream the video feed from your camera's HDMI output to a remote LCD Monitor up to 300ft (LOS) away.

Having a director's monitor available on set is one of the best tools to have when working with anyone that needs to view the videos being shot from your camera so that they can offer creative input, or at times this tool is used for someone pulling focus remotely (especially when your camera is mounted to a gimbal). You can also use this when mounting your camera at the end of a long JIB / Crane, or when you have a remote camera that needs to stream video back to a Live Switch. Tons of useful reasons to have a Wireless Video Streaming kit on hand.

Here's a simple video rig for Smartphones that offers two Cold Shoe mounts and several 1/4" threaded mounts for attaching a variety of accessories. I was intrigued by this as I believe it could be an inexpensive way to build out a handheld rig with a small monitor for use as a director's monitor.

Especially if you consider how much the SmallHD 501 / 502 monitors look like iPhones, this rig could easily be modified. The two cold shoes could be a clean and simple way to mount up those wireless video receivers too.
