New member here. I got my M50 some weeks ago. I'm trying to set it up for live streaming, but I need a clean HDMI output to do that. I've managed to get an almost clean output, but I still get the focus box around my face. Is there a way to turn that box off?
Well, I actually just figured it out. All I have to do is set it to manual focus, and the focus box dissapears. As long as I'm sitting in about the same spot while live-streaming, I should be fine. If don't use too large aperture, I can stay in focus for normal movement while sitting in my "studio". I'm thinking about f4 to f5. 🙂
The HDMI output is probably a duplicate of what you would see on the LCD. In fact, I would bet that the camera reroutes the video signal to the LCD to the HDMI port whenever it detects something is plugged into it.
I think Canon thinks of vlogging as recording video and downloading it to the computer, not live camera to internet.
So does Wikipedia. Video (b)logging means recording, usually a selfie, not live broadcasting.across the internet.
