Hi there,

The camera does have an HDMI output so as long as your capture card has an HDMI input and your computer is using streaming software you should be able to see a live image from the camera, however this camera does not have a "clean" HDMI output so you will see exactly what you are seeing on the LCD screen including any of your settings display or any other interface on the screen.

Yes, I have exactly the same question and I also can't see the preview through HDMI. I can only see the captured photos.

Did anyone figure out a solution to this? I'm having this same issue, but with my G9 X. I can't get the camera feed to appear in OBS thorugh the capture card. Everything seems to be connected properly, but all I'm seeing is color bars on OBS.

The short answer is no you cannot stream live video, you will only see pictures you have taken output from the HDMI
