Nice pano rig but if its a mini view camera as you state, then why the need for the hood loop ? My 4x5 Toyo field camera doesn't have a VF, it as a ground glass display, which other than showing an upside down image, is just like working from a LCD display
One item I'd suggest changing, as someone who does a lot of pano's, is the RRS panning clamp for an indexing rotator. You can get some Ebay ones for $100-150 depending on number of intervals you want around.
It makes pano shooting SOOOOOOO much easier. Just set the overlap amount you want, and then its as simple as click the rotator to the right or left, snap the shutter, click the rotator to the next position, take the shot.
It makes it error free and much quicker, especially when you have the tripod positioned in such a way that you can't easily view the LCD display or the degree markings on the clamp.
Also, in the event you want to do a second pass for blending of two exposures, (after the DP2m buffer has finally cleared!) it makes it very easy to go back to the first position and shoot it again.
