DSLR Video Output Mirroring?
on Sep 9, 2012 at 6:54:43 am

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and in my next video production I will be attaching a very long RCA cord to the video out ports on it and feeding it into an older camcorder that can display video input so the camera operator and a second crew member can see the video feed. I received the monitor today and plugged it to my camera, and when I did the screen on the camera shut off and I could only see the feed on the external monitor. I have magic lantern installed but I couldn't find the option in there. Is there any way of mirroring the image instead of only showing it on one monitor?

Hi Bryce -

It appears that this box is the only option you have:

One of the huge limitations of DSLR film making is the inability to output a separate video signal and have a live LCD monitor on the camera.

Here are some usage scenarios you might run into using the Orchid box:

Wait a minute, what do you mean by 'RCA cable'?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RCA_connector

Not sure how you would go about connecting a DSLR to RCA, but it won't be easy. That would be a analog to digital conversion as well as a SD to HD conversion.

I am assuming that this is a mistake in terminology since you said you could see the picture on the external monitor.

I would mean using the component cable that can plug into the DSLR that outputs a composite rca signal. And the coupling it to a camcorder that can display composite video input on it's screen and viewfinder.

Oh,yeah. I completely forgot that those cameras had that output.
