Recording the screen of the EOS R

Hi everyone, I am a photography teacher and am trying to film a segment of a course that requires me to show the actual screen of the camera.  I know with Sony cameras you can record the screen using an Atomos Ninja but was wondering if this was the same thing with the EOS-R before buying the Ninja

It has an HDMI port. If it is like all the other Canon's the HDMI signal is simply the video from the LCD screen.

Since you're a teacher and making instructional material, do you just need the image on the screen, or do you also need to record menus or other image info overlaid on the screen?

Yes, I would want all of the settings and focus points, etc.

Ooooof Robot tongue. . . I suspect that the camera's HDMI output might only be the streaming image. You're wanting to add another whole layer of screen info on top of that. I'm thinking someone else on here will know if there's another possible workaround or not.

 

How about scrolling thru the menus and looking for ways to turn some of the shooting information displays on or off. But that may still only affect what you see on the camera's LCD and not what's fed to the HDMI output jack.

michaelanthony, 

By pressing the <INFO> button on the back of the camera one can change the displays that are output from the camera.  That will give you all the options available for output on this model.

You begged the question, Tim: Is the HDMI output a mirror of the LCD display with all of the overlays?
