5d mark ii external monitor

Im shooting video with the 5d. I'm coming out hdmi and going into an Aja box and out hdsdi (bnc). When we record I lose picture. Is there a way to have an external monitor and and picture up while recording video?

Re: 5d mark ii external monitor

The 5d mark ii switches to SD when recording starts. Your SDI adapter may not uprez SD to HDSDI and if it doesn't your video will stop when you press record.

Try a HDMI monitor and you should see it go black for a second or two when you press record. You should get your picture back once the monitor adjusts to the SD HDMI signal.

The only other way is buy a hdmi splitter and a second hdmi monitor.

For your specific problem it won't help.
