external monitor with Canon 5d mk3
« on: March 20, 2014, 07:25:35 pm »

hello, i have a 5 inch external monitor that I would like to use for viewing photos I shoot while tethered to it. viewing only, not downloading to the monitor of course. there is a small plug on the monitor that says A/V and it is a single hole that looks a bit bigger than the headphone hole on an iPhone. how can I hook this up to my 5d? The 5d has a slot named ' A/V digital out ' that looks kinda like a weird USB hole. Any suggestions how I can join these two together with a long cord? What cord?

A HDMI to Mini HDMI cable usually does the trick.

thanks but I looked that cable up and it is not the correct fitting. the port on the monitor is just a round hole like I described in my post, it needs some sort of male microphone jack thingy.

mini HDMI output on your camera and the analog A/V in on your monitor are not compatible. Forget it.

Sounds like it is an RCA socket, which is analogue. HDMI is digital.

Time to hit B&H?
