Live View Monitor output size?

From the manual,

"If you connect the camera to a TV set with an HDMI cable and display the Live View image while shooting a movie at [1920x1080], the image displayed on the TV set will be small.
However, the movie itself will be recorded in the [1920x1080] size as set."

Has anyone out there connected it up to see just how small?
I hope this doesn't mean major problems for Follow Focus operation.
Man, I was really hoping to just plug in an external monitor and go but this may require some kind of scaling to make it big enough to pull focus.

My local Canon dealer is having a show next month so I hope to test it or at least have an answer then.

This preview reports to have "Live View capture recorded over HDMI" (direct quicktime).

Based on my analysis of this, the live HDMI is approximately 1360x880 image area with controls and metadata surrounding it, inside a 1920x1080 frame.

Yes, thank you.
I saw that at DP Review when it first came out but I thought it was live view during stills capture.
Should be the same I guess....
Looks like I'll need the biggest monitor I can afford.

Wonder if it'll output full uncompressed, if you're viewing via HDMI output, but not recording in camera at the same time?

Doesn't look like it because the shooting info is always displayed except on playback.

concerning HDMI output: The user manual is online and from what I recall there is not raw output that can be encoded. It's not surprising that Canon would put limits on this model.

Not really surprising to me. They have to protect their future product announcements. NAB maybe? You'd think they would be taking this technology and making a "Digital Cinema" (i.e. Red One) style camera.

Still, this is a big deal for this camera (we are talking the Mark II, right?) - b/c looking at that rear view finder will old real fast.
