XF305 clean SD Analog out

I need to output a clean SD analog live signal out. I can't find a menu item to turn off the menu/info displays on the BNC video 2 output.... anyone know if it's possible to leave the info up on the LCD without having it go out the BNC connector? Can you get analog out of the HD/SDI connector?

You can get a clean output by turning off everything in the viewfinder but I really want the peaking and zebras and card info...

The 'menu out' is off so that's not the answer.

thanks

Re: XF305 clean SD Analog out

I've used clean SD output from the BNC terminal whilst retaining all the info on the LCD. Can't remember what I had to do, but it worked. Not near the camera at the moment, but just take it as a big YES!

Easy cakes. Whilst in camera mode:

Third menu icon "Video Setup" --> Component Output "SD" and SD Onscreen Disp. OFF

Re: XF305 clean SD Analog out

Thanks Tim! I knew it was in there somewhere but missed it under time pressure of a setup.

But luckily in my case, turning the display off with the button under the handle gets rid of everything including the red record light, so I was able to use that, even though I was too stupid to find the right menu item.... I toggled the 'menu out' item without result and gave up too soon!
