Removing icons from G20 display not possible?

SeeJ

My teacher has an HF 620. He wants to use it for streaming his tai chi classes via Zoom. Be picked up an INOGENI capture card.

 

The problem is that there seems to be no way to remove "all" of the icons from the display when recording or, in this case, when streaming. He's getting this as a result:

The instruction manual makes it clear it can't be done:

Yet I thought I'd ask here anyway, in case there's a workaround or hack that might accomplish it that someone might be aware of.

 

Thanks!

I have a G40 which is similar in many ways to the G20. You can disable the menu screen from appearing on the HDMI out. Have a look here. This is from the G40 manual. See if you have a similar control on the G20.

It turns out it can indeed be done, just as you said:

 

Menu > wrench icon > Output On-Screen Controls > turn Off.

 

Thanks!

Most consumer camcorders will not have "clean" HDMI output while recording; just for playback.   The Vixia HF G50 (and I believe the G60) will have clean HDMI output since they have features to work with external recorders.  So will the the vast majority  of professional camcorders.

Thanks.

 

Any chance you can suggest something, even refurbed or just used, in say around the $300-ish range that might fit the bill?

 

 

You'll have to do your own pricing research.  Here's a list of products maintained by Canon that has clean HDMI out.
