G50 HDMI output question

Hi all,


The Canon G50 internally records 4k at 4:2:0 8-bit.  Is that what it outputs through the HDMI port?  I ask because when set to 1080p it can output 10-bit 4:2:2 through HDMI.  Just curious if the 4K HDMI output is also 10-bit 4:2:2.


Thanks for any info!

Re: G50 HDMI output question


The 4K HDMI output is limited to 4:2:2 8 bit.

1920x1080 does a 4:2:2 10 bit color sampling, however.
