I'm not sure how that will work since the camera won't fit into the case/holder with anything attached to the back. In most cases, you really don't need a viewfinder because of the wide-angle lens. I was skeptical of that until I tried it.

As for the small icons, you don't need to see them either unless you are changing modes. If you stay in the same mode all the time, you only need one button to turn the camera on/off and the other button to start/stop recording.
