Does anyone know if the Vixia M500 outputs "raw" video via the HDMI port in 4:2:2 format rather than the compressed format saved on the SD cards? I'd like to connect a field recorder to the camera to get better quality. The sensor is really good but I'm hoping to get more out of the camera before spending big bucks on a prosumer camera.

Without speculating, there isn't a way for us to confirm whether this camera will capture uncompressed video through the HDMI port on the camera. This is because that is not a published specification in the manual. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you at this time.

Thanks, Tim. Is there any way to find out from the design team on this? I know companies keep their engineers shielded but certainly someone at the company knows the answer to this. Even though it's not a published specification, there had to be some design decision and implementation to match a standard on the HDMI output port.
