Troubleshooting Live feeds - mini recorder / iphone


Greetings All!

I would like to ask two questions:

I am having trouble setting up my BlkMagic mini recorder and Sony a6000. A few years ago, I don’t remember having any trouble connecting a GH2. I don’t know if its the cameras. Or something else. I am pretty sure everything is up to date. I will check again though. Grateful for any helpful hints.

The other related question that I am curious about is about using an iphone as a video source, which I have done on numerous occasions. However, there is always the overlay controls or data of whatever camera app. Is there a camera app that can hide those graphics. What other work arounds have people tried. I suppose, I could zoom, and not loose quality. Any body had any luck with that.

Best to all and thanks!




From what I remember the mini recorder only works with specific frame rates. What is your camera sending out via HDMI (or SDI?) The GH2 may have sent a different signal into the recorder.

I’m not sure about the iPhone, I don’t use it myself. Maybe someone else has some thoughts.



For iPhone check out epocamHD.

Thank you! I will experiment with my settings and framerates, that could be it, thanks for your reply



I haven’t heard of that app, I will check it out. Since, I wrote, I realized that Filmic pro has the option of hiding the display and that I can enter “Guided Access” to hide the little home bar at the bottom of the screen. Thanks!



Greetings all,

I have found solutions for both my questions, thank you for your suggestions.

For the Sony a6000, I had to change the HDMI resolution to 1080i. The record settings appear not to matter.
