Was that supposed to be trolling?!

If it's broken on the internal LCD, it will be just as broken on the external monitor.
If it's color and real-time on the internal LCD, it will be color and real-time on the external monitor as well.
If it's grayscale or slow on the internal LCD, change the preview options and start over.

Generally speaking, external monitor support is more difficult, as it requires 6 times more bandwidth (1920x1080 vs 720x480). For this particular issue, it's a matter of figuring out how to alter Canon's previewing pipeline (or how to reprogram it from scratch on the image processing hardware, rather than on the main CPU, which is very slow).

Many thanks for your answer A1ex. I won't invest in any external monitor and keep playing with the internal LCD then!

Hardware and Accessories / 5D Mark iii in crop mode with external monitor
« on: January 06, 2019, 04:41:36 PM »
Hi there and sorry if the question has aleady been asked.
Most of the crop modes work with the preview broken and I wonder if using an external monitor would fix this? Or does the same greyscale than in Liveview would be shown on the Ext. monitor while shooting ?
Many thanks for your help and happy new year !

Camera-specific discussion / Re: Canon 5D Mark IV

Hi all,

Well, I'm new on this forum and I first want to thank you a lot for all the wonderful job you're doing. ML is...Magic.
I'm currently owning a 6D but will upgrade to a 5D soon, mark iii or iv.
Just wondering about your thoughts on the mark iv. There is obvisouly more Dynamic range comparing to the mark iii but apart from this, what can justify this very costly update ? As there is no CF Fast, we will still be very limited for 4K (and higher) record.
Or am I missing something ?
