is just like any other camcorder...

If you need to monitor the video only, then use the AV cable connected to a monitor with the yellow composite video output.

There are specially made "monitors" that can be camera mounted. If camera-mounting is not a requirement, then the monior size/weight is not an issue - any LCD panel or CRT TV works. When I use a camera crane, I use a Sony 8.5" portable DVD player with the "Input" switch selected.

(There are other camera mount - or not - monitors that can use composite or HDMI connections for high definition camcorders.)
