Share Your Videos / A Morning At The Park... 700D 2.35:1 1x3

Just a morning at the park :-)

General Chat / Fix 1x3 mode Liveview Using An Android phone
« on: October 10, 2020, 12:41:18 PM »

Shooting with the 1x3 mode is a bit hard, as the live view is small and squeezed.

After I've seen Zeek's video and found out theres an option to use my phone as a screen, I came up with an idea.

I've decided to make an Android app that would stretch the image, so we can use a bigger screen & see the way it really is.

Camera Screen:

Phone with my app (6.1 inch Android 9):

The camera output (MLV FILE):

Pay attention. About 20% of the lower part of the final image is being cut out. I think this is because the original preview does not contain that data.


Using the app:

1. Enter the App

2. Choose HDMI input res:

Use 1920x1080 unless you have a good reason not to

3. Choose current preset mode:

(I've tested only 2.35:1 and 16:9)

4. You'll get a blank black screen

5. Connect everything, while your camera is OFF (Otherwise there might be some artifacts. This can be fixed by turning the camera off and on)

6. Make sure you're on the first LiveView option (Do not press INFO, it might cause corrupted frames in the final video)

App Download Link:

The problem with stretching is that it depends on your screen ratio. For example if you dont have a wide phone, you would have to either
1. Use a smaller height with the same width, so it will fill the entire screen, but you'll see a much smaller image
2. Stretch it so you'll see only a portion of the image, but at the correct aspect ratio.

My phone worked O.K with 2.35:1, so I've only stretched it to the entire screen. If you have a different phone screen ratio you can make changes to the code to make it match ur screen.

I've currently tested only HDMI-INPUT 1920x1080 & aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and 16:9. If you test anything else and have any issues please write here.

This project is based on
(I didn't even change App's Icon) and has code that I didn't write. Use this app at your own risk :-)
