I notice that my Fuji x100f has a micro HDMI port. I know that it can be used to view live video on eg an external monitor as I shoot, but does anyone know if it will also output a live view of whatever the viewfinder is seeing while I'm shooting stills? What sort of device would I use to record that output?

I have an Elgato HD60 S+ that I use to capture the output from my X100F.  You must be in Movie mode in order to get the full resolution.

An interesting note is that the digital tele-converter does not work in HDMI output mode.

OTHERWISE, the following will happen. If you are in the wrong mode, you will get a lower res output.  Similarly, the viewfinder overlay will show up if you put something in near the eye sensor, this can be avoided by turning off all of the overlay items in the menu via WRENCH -> SCREEN SET-UP -> DISP. CUSTOM SETTING -> EVF/LCD; unfortunately, when the micro-HDMI is plugged-in, you can't disable the eye-sensor so it will always show unless you turn off the overlay items or just don't go near the eye sensor. 

Note: when the micro-HDMI cord is plugged in, the read/write LED will turn solid green when it recognizes an HDMI device.  Interestingly, when the micro-HDMI cord is plugged-in, you cannot toggle off the LCD's info overlay using the DISP/BACK button like you could when the micro-HDMI cord is not plugged-in. 

Another oddity is that you can use the hybrid OVF (when you select VIEWFINDER ONLY view mode) with the micro-HDMI plugged-in, and the signal you'll get will show the usual overlay and you can even toggle the Electronic rangefinder (ERF) window.  But, I don't really see an application for this.

Can you share the steps you use to get your x100f to output correctly to the camlink? My macbook pro sees the camlink, and will let me select it as a video input - but the closest I've gotten to a working x100f with the camlink is a black screen output.

This is what I've done:

  1. camlink to usb on the mac
  2. mini hdmi out on the x100f to camlink input
  3. turn the camera on, switch to video mode

That's all I've done, really, and I only get a black screen as output.  The LED on the back of the camera does turn solid green, and the lcd on the back of the camera shows an HDMI icon which seems to indicate that it is connected... but no luck!

Any help is appreciated.
