I'm not going to argue with you sir. I do really like the camera overall. Just been a bit of a tricky thing to deal with as it's really my first dslr.

Who knows?, eventually the "taxes" thing could eventually fade away and there could be some firmware changes in the years to come. I know it's just a hope, but sometimes thats all you need!.

Re: 30 minute limit. T7.

Greetings, 

 

I have a solution for you. In order to get a clean HDMI output with a canon T7 or T7i, you must utilize a lens other than the kit lens. For instance, I am using a 30mm with 2.8 aperature. Switch the camera to 'manual focus' and then switch it into 'movie mode'. Switching it into 'manual focus' will remove the white focus box. Switching it into 'movie mode' will remove the black ring (the black ring is associated with the 30mm lens). The camera is connected to an HP laptop via the HDMI cord. The HDMI cord is connected to the Elgato Cam Link, which is connected to the laptop via the USB port. I cannot attest that this works for every camera or lens, however it works for the above configuration. 1.PNG2.PNG

That is called a "work around".  It is neither a documented or supported mode of operation.  Good luck.

Re: 30 minute limit. T7.

Greetings,

 

Please explain which part of this is a "work around". Is the part where I use a canon camera? The part where I use a canon lens? The part where I use a canon recommended product (elgato cam link)? The part where I use the built-in canon camera settings? What are you smoking? The very function is documented by the makers of the Elgato Cam Link on their website. This entire setup is supported by canon, in that it entirely utilizes canon and canon approved products.
