Ditto the above on the use of a monitor. It sure can make life easier.
One of my young videographers hates dragging along a monitor. One day he spent two hours on a shoot for a training video. The viewfinder was bright so he darkened the view finder vice stopping down. Then he shot for two hours. He said it looked fine in the viewfinder. If he had taken the external monitor he would have seen his mistake immediately. Reshooting the footage he disliked even more. He learned.
I advocate using the external monitor whenever practical.
