External Recording of Full Res Live View?
« on: August 07, 2018, 03:16:39 PM »
Is it possible to record the Full Res Live View using an external Recorder which is capable of handling such big resolutions such as the AtomOS Shogun Inferno?

In more detail:

When I set the resolution in Magic Lantern to ‘Full Res LiveView‘, is it possible to record this with a higher Framerate using an external recorder like the Shogun Inferno from AtomOS (this thing can handle 5.7K at 30 FPS) over HDMI? If HDMI is a bottleneck, would it be possible to record FULL 4K (3840x2160 or 4096×2160) at 24, 30 or 60 FPS with an external recorder?

Thanks

Edit: I am trying to do this all on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

Currently we know very little about the HDMI chip, see this thread.

If you have "the knack", i.e. if you can figure out useful information from several megabytes of logs full of numbers, your help is welcome ;)

On 5D3, full-res images can be captured at not more than 7.5 FPS (well, unless you can find a way to overclock the sensor).

The HDMI output of the camera is 1080p 422 color. That's what you can record from HDMI.
