I thought some may be interested in my latest post on using the Hollyland Mars X from a 5D3 photographer's perspective:

Dear Garry,
How heavy is it? I often use with the DJI Ronin S.
I have never seen that built on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III?

@ChristianEOS

Just measured the unit for you, without cables, but with the inclosed battery, obviously: it’s 118gms.

 thank you for your effort. I compare the normal Canon display with Sony and it is good enough for me. As I try to even record in 60p I would even try to look at the real motive rather than the camera. Hope that  is in Focus as a precaution film twice. My good old friend from Fenchel & Janisch also had to a wireless system.

There're a lot of bad reviews about poor image quality and buggy software.
Interesting, how it compares to DJI Ronin Raveneye Image Transmission System
