Hello again,

using this cam on a strictly Steadicam based tv-programme. I can't get the info of f-stop, focus etc on my steadicam monitor. I went into the menu and found the LCD option. (Last menu, way down), and got all the text from the cam menu onto the steadicam monitor, but when I switched the menu off, the text went away. I need the f-stop info and all that on the steadicam monitor.

Is this because I need to use the s-video. Used the mini-jack today, as when I used the s-video, I just got a black and white picture.

Help and advise greatly appriciated.

Are you using a Z1 or an FX1? I have a Z1 and when I send the info to the monitor it stays there. Don't know why you are having a problem.
