Title: SmallHD focus monitor
Post by: jefro on April 25, 2018, 10:05:20 PM
I'm using a 1.1.3 build on my 5D3 and I have a problem with my SMallHD focus (5 inch monitor) displaying the proper aspec ratio.  When using the zoom button to go into 3k mode, the SmallHD focus does not show proper framing (it shows the zoomed image).  Anyone else deal with this .. suggestions ?

It's working as intended.  The 1.1.3 firmware will mirror the LCD output on its HDMI.  If you update your camera's firmware to 1.2.3 , and use a 1.2.3 ML build, which will give you clean HDMI output.

You will still have the zoomed in view on your external monitor in 3K mode (which you use for pulling focus), however, you can set it up so you depress the shutter button, and you will see a low framerate preview (that has proper framing!) in your camera's LCD.
