Active video out in recording mode w. Lumix G3, G5 (GH2, GH3)
Jan 27, 2013

Curious to learn if any of these Lumix models give you an active video out signal in video recording mode (not in playback mode), either only before you start video recording, or perhaps also after you start video recording, but then dropping to a lower resolution? They could do this via HDMI or the AV OUT cable or both. It would be a great feature, for instance when you are shooting in the studio or on a tabletop and have the AC adapter powering the camera, and then you can plug an external monitor into the camera and frame and focus using that larger screen. So, would anyone know if any of these Lumix cameras are capable of outputting active video signal via HDMI or AV OUT in recording mode? I know the GH3 does, not sure about these others. Here is hoping.
