    just need to be able to attach it to my camera for when i use my jib.

    The Lilliput 668GL is probably about the cheapest they come (under $200). You can attach it to the camera with a shoe mount.

    Most of the other small on-camera monitors from Marshall, etc. cost significantly more but do have more features.

    I need to have a 10ft cable. Can I do that with HDMI?

    I use a liliput 869GL.

    I bought some bare batteries off ebay, put some heavy velcro on them and use them. I can get a full day of shooting out of it no problems.

    It accepts an 1920x1080 signal, but the actual screen resolution is 800x640. That's actually not too shabby for a 7" monitor and you should be able to pull focus on it pretty well.

    Sure you can. Modern HDMI cables should have no problem sending a signal over 10 ft. This cable from Monoprice should work fine and it's only 4 bucks.
