Using an external monitor w/X70

I think I must be senile. I have tried all kinds of settings but I can't seem to get an HDMI signal to feed my new monitor.

Which of you Brainiacs will win the cigar?

Re: Using an external monitor w/X70

Hi Dan,

Not an X70 owner, but borrow my buddy's X70 frequently ;-)

From the manual:

In Menu - use EXEC button to select (REC/OUT SET) > [OUTPUT SELECT] > the jack that you want to use for output.

Pg. 74 of pdf - https://pro.sony.com/bbsc/assetDownloadController/PXW-X70-Operating-Guide-(45442421M).pdf?path=Asset%20Hierarchy$Professional$SEL-yf-generic-153708$SEL-yf-generic-153753PXW-X70%20Operating%20Guide%20(45442421M).pdf&id=StepID$PXW-X70%20Operating%20Guide%20(45442421M)$original&dimension=original

If memory is correct (without looking it up again), if in 4K record mode, you cannot output live video when recording. Must be in HD mode to get HDMI output. I've used Atomos Assassin and Ninja 2 units with the X70 to record 1080i output via HDMI and worked great for both.

Thanks

Re: Using an external monitor w/X70

Still no luck. I hope you are wrong about outputting in HD while recording in 4K!

Thanks

Re: Using an external monitor w/X70

Is that what you're trying to do, output while recording 4K?

The Ver. 3.00 firmware update recently came out which may fix this issue, as it says "5. External output and the face detection function is now supported when recording in XAVC QFHD."

Have not yet tried this myself. But I'm sure that without the update, you can not output video when in 4K mode, at least not while also recording in camera.

Update thread here - http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/sony-pxw...te-out-v3.html

Thanks

Re: Using an external monitor w/X70

Reviving this old thread.

Can anyone confirm whether, with the latest firmware, it is now possible to monitor externally while recording in 4K? Thx.

Re: Using an external monitor w/X70

Every time I hit the record button, my external monitor goes black. I have the latest firmware, 3.0.

Re: Using an external monitor w/X70

You cannot get LCD/EVF and video output at the same time in 4K while the camera is actively recording in 4K mode.
