Canon Mark D III and ext. monitor
on Jul 8, 2020 at 6:22:15 pm

I just got the Lilliput A7 monitor. To get the full image on the monitor I have to put the camera on mirroring, if I do that it will not play back on the monitor - only on the camera LCD...if I put the camera on no mirroring I can play back on the external but, the picture is not full screen when shooting. Question - is this a camera issue, or is this the brand of monitor? Is this with all DSLR cameras and monitors, or just the canon Mark D III? What I would like is a monitor that will go full screen, and play back full screen if possible.

Might just be that monitor. I have a SWIT 7" and I get the whole image on the monitor. What resolution is the monitor, more than 1920x1080?

The resolution is 1920 x 1200......with all the research I've done so far everyone says its the camera, that the mirrorless work full screen. You're the first to mention it might be the monitor. It works full screen with my video camera. The Lilliput was recommended to me by B & H Photo. I don't need a lot of bells & whistles, focus assist, false color etc. Swift is a new name, check it out.

Perhaps there is a preference on the Lilliput to map the output of the camera to the external screen. Again, I hook up my monitor and I get the same image on the internal and external. I even use it with MagicLantern when shooting RAW.

If there is a preset, I haven't found it yet. It does have a set where I can put D3 [canon Mark D III] I tried it, doesn't change anything. Very modestly priced, which may be limitation. You've been kind to answer give suggestions. I'm not in a place where I can go to a store and test out a lot of different monitors to see.....[good news, I have 30 days to return if I can't live with this].

Suzin,

Where are you based? I'm in Los Angeles. If you are in the area, I'd be more than happy to take a look.

That is really nice of you and if I was in Cali, I would definitely take you up on your offer. I am in Raleigh, NC. Which is why there are not too many places to try equipment out, hence B & H of NYC. Very good return policy. Out of curiosity, is your camera mirrorless?

I use a 5D Mark III. It's not mirrorless. Perhaps we can arrange a phone call and I'll walk you through my settings.

Oh you have the same camera as me, I'm always surprised when a professional as the same camera, .....You have offered above and beyond - that is very kind of you to go out of the way to offer a phone call to help. I love this forum, I have gotten so much assistance. I'm sure I got this for now. When I have a Canon III question, I might put your name in the thread title ☺ .....you've been so helpful. I hate to admit that I am technically challenged, but I have a great artistic eye. Again, thank you for taking the time, and offering to make a phone consultation to help out - you've blown me away. Stay safe, thank you again ~ Suzin
