4K-Yes, LCD-No

I just spent 2 1/2 days shooting outdoors in bright sunlight. Job requirements called for 4K so I whipped out my X70 and mounted my wonderful SmallHD 5" monitor with the "Sidefinder" viewfinder. That viewfinder is great outdoors.

Here comes the rub: I can't view the operating details except on the camera's viewfinder and LCD. Shooting run and gun you OFTEN must make changes. On a static shoot, you set the details and forget it. I do not like having to remove my eye from my external monitor, look through the camera viewfinder and make my changes and then go back to the external monitor.

The X70 has got to go! So which Sony cameras do not present this problem??? My budget is under 10K.

Re: 4K-Yes, LCD-No

Do you have frame marker on by any chance?
I haven't checked this but otherwise you should get everything out to your monitor I'd think.

Re: 4K-Yes, LCD-No

Not sure if you are the same Gunn. But this was answered in the PXW X70 Facebook group.

Chiu Yeung Ngan At the Display Menu, select “Display Output”, then select “All Output”.
Pls be careful if you are using an external recorder, as all data display will also recorded in the recorder!

Do you get display output text when in HD record mode?

Paul, I don't get the screen info into my external monitor with 4K or 2K. Now I will check if the Z90 shares the same bad habit.
