Canon Rebel T1i (500d) External Monitor

I know it's a REALLY old camera, but I am still using the Canon Rebel T1i (500D). I was wondering if I could use the HDMI OUT port to connect an external monitor to the camera (for live view). If anyone knows, please respond. Thanks!

Sure, but note that it is not "clean" video, it is just a mirror of the LCD with all the shooting info icons.

 

And yours is not "Really old" we often get questions about Xs', Xi' and the odd Rebel G around here.

Thanks! However, I don't understand what you mean by "clean" video. Are you saying that you can't shoot video with the monitor on?

My wife and I still have our XTi's. We never use them, but they're available in case any of our grandchildren get interested enough to need something beyond their cell phones.

Just what I said. The video on the monitor has all the icons that show on the LCD while shooting a video like the focus point, the time remaining, the little red tally symbol...

 

If you are just using the monitor for review it is fine, if you are using an external recorder it might not work so well.
