EVF-V70 settings

Hello,

I've just installed a new EVF-V70 on a C300 MK III, and when viewing the in-camera settings I've noticed that "V70 sharpness" setting is grayed out.  Since the instructions that came with the EVF are not helpful, and the Internet provides no assistance either, I wonder if there are any users who have some insight into this issue?

Thank you in advance,

Ron

I grew impatient, and performed a camera reset ... problem solved.  The 'sharpness' option is now available in both media and camera modes.

Thank you all for your assistance.

I had previously written that the problem regarding the EVF-V70 and the "sharpness setting" had been resolved with a camera reset. But I have just realized that the real issue was the PEAKING TO VIDEO TERMINAL 'ON' setting. That is the incompatibility. With the peaking to video terminal OFF the sharpness setting on the V70 works, turn it on and it grays out. The reason that the camera reset appeared to have resolved the issue is because Peaking to Video Terminal is turned OFF by default, and the EVF-V70 connects to the video terminal. I'm not sure I understand why you can't have peaking and sharpness at the same time, but that appears to be the incompatible setting.

Hi wobbleman99,

Thanks for checking in. By default, button 2 on the EVF-V70 should allow you to do setup adjustments.

It might help if you disconnect the accessory, clean the contacts, and then reattach the EVF-V70. It might also help if you try using a different camera modes.

Hi Nick,

Thank you for your reply.  The only contacts are via cable, and I cannot see how I could possibly clean the internal contacts on either the cable or the camera's input receptacle.  As for "camera modes," I'm not sure I follow?  I've contacted Canon Cinema Support, and it was suggested that it might be due to a setting incompatibility, but they couldn't immediately determine which setting/s could be responsible.  I am currently awaiting a call back in that regard.

As a followup to my initial post, I've noticed that the "sharpness" setting for the EVF-V70 is only available while in Media Mode, and not Camera mode?  Still awaiting a response from Canon Technical Support in this regard.

Do you got the complete setting which is compatible? I also got issue with black n white images. Don't know much but see different thread on intern today but unluckily no one works for me.

Sorry, I did not entirely understand your post, but try a camera reset to return to default settings ... it worked for me, and from there I found the incompatible setting that was interfering with the "sharpness" setting for the EVF-V70.

I found nothing in the user manual that addressed this issue, and the microscopically printed page that came with the EVF was a challenge to read, but it did not address this either.
