Question Viewing Video on Location

Need a bit of help,

Being a VERY small film crew (i.e. there is only 2 of us), it is only ever one of us is filming and directing the other.

The problem we have is not being able to show the other person the footage on location as the DSLR we use, has no playback feature for videos, only stills. This has an obvious creative disadvantage of the person being filmed not being able to have any input in the moment, leading to quite a few pick ups needing to be filmed either later on that day, or later in the week.

Has anyone found a solution to this that doesn't involve lugging a laptop around with you at all times?

Any help would be appreciated,

Kind Regards

Get a camera that has playback
Hookup a recording device to the output of the camera (if possible)

There are bad ideas like a directors monitor if the actor is also supposed to judge the performance.
