Ipad as external monitor ?


As I am very interested in videography, both A7ii and A6300 and I already have Ipads (mini and Air2), I would like to use what I already have.

So, my intention is to use an Ipad as an external monitor only. I am not interested in recording externally, but only in real-time viewing, in order to judge both the focus and framing.

So, because of the lags, the wireless communication seems inappropriate. I can connect wireless via PlayMemories application, but I see lags that makes it unusable.

Did any of you succeeded any kind of communication with Ipads - maybe corded, and use it as an external monitor?

I suppose some apps will have to be downloaded also.

(I know that PC and MAC can use Ipads as external monitors via apps and cords).

Your experience is welcome to be shared with me !
