Re: Recording the screen of the EOS R

[ Edited ]

Thank you very much for the thread and answers. I was asking myself the same thing and when I googled found the thread on my fav forum! Cause I only know how to record the screen of my laptop/pc. I'll need this as well, to create after all a video for my youtube channel with this software. But first the stream from the camera. So one more time, thank you)

Re: Recording the screen of the EOS R

One thing to add is that the back of camera displays look slightly different on a connected HDMI screen/device. The camera "knows" that it's on the HDMI devices and some touch screen icons get moved or look different. Also HDMI devices have a 16:9 aspect ratio so some icons are moved a little in comparison to the 3:2 ratio LCD screen.


Fruthermore one or two functions won't display on an HDMI screen / device. Say you want to show manual focus peaking, the only way on the EOS R is to photograph the back of the camera. Even the settings menu is not displayed when you connect an HDMI device. 


I make screengrabs of the camera menus for some workshops and writing activities I do, As a result I know quite a lot about what works and what doesn't over HDMI for most of the EOS cameras.
