I apologize in advance if this has been covered, but I've done a lot of searching and haven't found a solution to this problem.
Looking for some advice on using an external monitor with a D800 while recording to internal cards. I'm using the monitor as a field monitor on location with sports, and not set up to use an external recorder.
Video on the monitor looks great when in live view mode, but when I press record the video cuts out as the camera is now sending a smaller video format and the monitor takes a few seconds to adjust to the new stream. I understand that its a known feature/issue with the camera as Nikon quotes it as "less than 1280x720". I'm trying to find a way for the video not to cut out to the monitor - even if I have to set it up for a smaller resolution like 480p. Has anyone had any success with this? Seems like a bit of a crippling feature - I remember the Canon 5D having the same issue, but thought they fixed that in following models and I'm surprised that there's a chance Nikon instituted the same issue with the D800.
Any advice is well appreciated.
