    Yes, you can but you would need an encoder, a companion app and a WiFi connection. Plus there would be a slight signal delay. There are hot shoe connectors available but are best with nothing larger than an iPad mini.

    Frankly, if you are serious about an external monitor, either use the HDMI out and a cheap flat panel TV on a stand or buy a proper 5" or 7" camera-mounted monitor.
