iPad as an external DSLR video monitor

I know in days gone by, you could use an iPad as an external video monitor for a DSLR. I have an iPad mini 2 and an old Android tablet. Can I use either for my (non-wifi-enabled) Nikon D7100 DSLR when I shoot video? Thanks, Andrew

Hi Andy
I’ve used this device from Manfrotto
and it is compatible with that Nikon.

I love it, and now that my Canon comes with USB 3 port, the video lag is minimal.
I’ve tried other options based on wifi but nothing beats the connection between the USB port 3 and a Lighting adaptor.

had it on my iPad mini and now on my iPad Pro 10.5 I love it
