Does the C300 MK2 output HD/SDI when in slow mode?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

Was on a job recently and it was with all C300 MK2 camera bodies.

At one point, the Director says, lets do that but at 60fps,then a little faster. No worries we say. We are shooting in 2K and the AC switches to the speed and all of a sudden, no video, so I plug in the cable from the back of the camera ( MON Out straight to the monitor ( Transvideo HD6 Silver knob Evolution), nothing, I plug it directly into a Panasonic Broadcast 17", Nothing, I pull out my CInetronic GEN 1 7", ..Nothing. We switch back to regular speed, Got picture, several AC's tried their hand at it and nothing, so we kept rolling at 23.98, later in the shoot, a guy walks up and says "Ah, the MK2, we have one at my agency, and it's a love hate relationship", I ask why, he says, " Cause we can't see anything out the BNC's when we shoot slow mo!". So... What are we missing here folks?

I tested this with all 6 cameras and nothing!. I must be missing something, It's not possible that Canon made an upgrade to their C300 and decided that if your in 2K ( which outputs a regular 1080 picture just fine), you would not be able to monitor externaly the picture if rolling at a higher frame rate...

 

School me, Cause I just don't know!.

Thanks in advance,

I've had this same issue on Late Night With Seth Meyers a while back. Slow mo, no picture on my DP7 HiBright, No picture on my DP6. I ended up shooting it looking at the top monitor...

I had a similar issue except that my monitor did get video signal. However it became disabled on wireless video feed. Switching back to 23.98 re-enabled the wireless video. It either resolved itself after a couple of reboots or changing the output frequency fixed it, can't remember but it worked....
