Administrators Andrew Reid Posted April 20, 2014 Author Administrators Share Posted April 20, 2014 I have tested it. Clean means no onscreen graphics or icons. 'Clean' in the sense of image quality means no moire, aliasing, false detail. Uncompressed clean HDMI does not effect moire and aliasing. On the A6000 the HDMI is free of onscreen icons so you can record from it. It is also uncompressed so you avoid the worse instances of break-up with the crappy internal AVCHD codec. However there's a lot of processing being done to the signal between sensor and HDMI output. I don't think it is 4:2:2 and the pixel binning process loses you quite a lot of the original sensor data making for a thin signal. End result is that although you can record it to a 10bit 4:2:2 file, it doesn't look like one. It looks only a little bit better than AVCHD! Still lots of banding and blockiness especially in shadows. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
