Cameras have become much smaller and much more powerful thanthey used to be. These days, you can get full HD, even 4K, resolution and a cinematic look with a camera that can fit in the palm of your hand. One of the drawbacks of small cameras is that they usually have small displays with can make it difficult to make sure that your shot is as perfect and beautiful as it can be. It can be difficult to tell if the focus is just right, exposure is correct, or any other small details about your show.

The best way to get around this is to use a monitor when you shoot. A monitor can give you a better idea of what the image will look like on an HD screen. However, monitors can be very expensive and bulky to carry around. This is where LukiLink can help. LukiLink is a device that links up your smartphone with your DSLR or other camera and turns your phone into a monitor that you can use in realtime to adjust and monitor your shots. 

You can also use the device to record directly to your phone, and stream live to your favorite services like Facebook and YouTube.

Currently still on Kickstarter, the device is made for Android but there are plans to make a version compatible with iPhone as well.

The LukiLink is currently available on Kickstarter for $93 but will have an eventual launch price planned at $150.
