fyi: M200 clean HDMI out and streaming

fyi: M200 clean HDMI out and streaming

I thought this might be of interest to some here. The video gives a nice explanation of using the M200 with it's clean HDMI out

Elgato makes products for streaming and one is an HDMI capture.

Some interesting points:

1) the M200 can use dual-pixel AF while keeping the HDMI out 'clean', at 1080p/60 (4K doesn't support this). Apparently this is unusual at this price point

2) the clean HDMI out also sends the Audio

3) due to processing on the M200 there is a slight lag, not big but shows up in mis-matched audio/video sync esp when talking, and only noticeable if using external microphone into the capture/mixing device (I don't think the M200 has an connector itself for external audio)

If i got this right, that's some big differences between the M50, which does an an external mic jack, but doesn't output clean HDMI in AF (so ppl use MF)

I think this year will see a huge increase in streaming, so cameras that don't support it at these price points will be at a market disadvantage
