EX3 S video to monitor
on Apr 26, 2013 at 3:55:08 pm

I just purchased a new EX3 and want to use my 7" monitor and the S video cable on the EX3 to view live what I'm shooting in that monitor.
But I can't get a picture in the monitor.
in my camera settings I have I-link turned on.
I also have the "video display out" set to on.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me.
Thanks
Roger

I believe S-video is only Standard Def, so I think you need to setup the format for SD to use your S-video monitor.
Display ON sends out the same display for menu and camera setting to an external monitor, I-link ON sends out DV or HDV signals.

Good Luck

Sorry for being behind the curve on this but I don't quite understand. Is there a way to set up the EX3 so the external monitor can be seen in SD when the camera films in HD?
Thanks Michael.

Can you not use the SDI out to view in HD? Or is it only an SD picture that you want?

I don't care at all if it's SD or HD. I just want to record in HD and view it in my 7" external monitor so I can get an idea of what I'm filming.
It's for our program in which I do a painting demonstration. I have the camera tight in on my painting and I need a monitor beside me to make sure that I am not covering the painting with my shoulder or head as I paint.
I use to use my Z1U perfectly with the monitor but can't seem to figure it out with my new EX3.

Hey Roger nice work with your show, very enjoyable. Did you find out how to spit out SD and record HD? I don't think it is possible.

Good Luck

I don't think so, you can answer this question by setting the format to SD and see if the S-video port give a signal to your monitor. My EX3 is out with a friend or I would have checked myself.

Good Luck

I don't know about the EX3, but on the EX1, I believe S-video is only available in HDV mode. So, you would need to use CAV or composite out in HD mode for analog output. Composite out is a dog.
