Camera-specific discussion / Re: Canon EOS M

I'm sorry to ask again, but I believe my question might be getting buried.

What are the limitations of HDMI output?

I'd be interested in hooking up an EOS M to a capture card.

I had heard you can get clear output with Magic Lantern, but I've also heard there are resolution limitations.

But with everything so constantly changing and it not being talked about explicitly I've found it hard to track down definitive information.

Okay, so I can use a script to functionally kill the timeout.

Does that mean the other things I've researched are correct?

I think the saddest loss for me would be forced 1080i, I'm not quite sure how well trying to deinterlace the footage while streaming would work out.

And thank you for putting up with this odd question.

I hate to ask as I feel like this is likely known information posted somewhere (I haven't been able to find it despite reading half of this thread and searching several times both here and on Google), but if I was to pick up an EOS M would I be able to use it as a webcam for streaming with a capture device and what would the limitations be?

I'd like to find something better than the standard Logitech C920 webcams used all over Twitch, but wouldn't have a huge budget to do so (I mean I can go up to a T3i and I know that should work, I'd just rather not). Plus, if I'm honestly, I did go to school for film and I've wanted a DSLR for years, but could never afford one. Besides, I would need something that can perform double duty like this.

I like the form factor of the EOS M and you really can't beat that price tag either, so if it'd work, it'd really be the ideal choice for me right now.

I know it doesn't support the capture over USB feature.
I am pretty sure I can get clean HDMI output with Magic Lantern from what I've read.
I've heard some things about the video output being locked to 1080i.
I wouldn't be recording while in this mode, I hear time out may be a problem?

I'm just trying to get a feel for this.
