So one of the most irritating things about shooting on pretty much any of canon’s camera line (minus the 7d) is that the HDMI port goes from HD to SD when you press the record button. This normally causes most field monitors to blink, but thanks to a little info from dzoemie you don’t have to put up with this blink any longer. If you set your Lilliput monitor to DVI mode the video footage stays in SD output but you get no blink when you press record.

The nice thing is that you can use the hdmi port for video output which frees up the usb port for a usb Follow focus. So if you don’t want to use the RCA output on your camera for monitoring then DVI mode on your Lilliput monitor could be handy.

The Lilliput monitor might be a good affordable choice and if you’re looking for an hdmi field monitor for any of your cameras. It is also nice to know that you can keep this monitor on with out having to deal with the Blink.
