Is there any workaround to record video internally AND use the HDMI out? I understand from some googling that as standard the screen goes blank as soon as you hit record?
no you cant do both at once , its either or !! I have brought this up at meetings with Panasonic as we all would like this feature , the G7 will not do this, I just shot a feature film with 6 x Panasonic G7 cameras , its a great camera !
