Is there a way to set up a G15 to see live images on a Tv screen prior to shooting?

Hi Paul, Thanks for your question about the Canon Powershot G15.
I've included a photo of the location of the HDMI port on the G15. You can connect to a TV using the HTC-100 HDMI cable or its equivalent.

I have not personally used the G15. I believe it's easy to display video and still images already taken in the playback mode with the G15 by connecting the proper cable and entering playback mode.

Unfortunately, I do not know if this can be carried over to record or shooting mode.

You do have the option of wirelessly transmitting to a computer screen while shooting with the addition of a transmitter mounted to the flash hot shoe.

I've found the technicians at Canon to be quite helpful. By calling Canon directly for your territory, you'll get the answer you're seeking.



Good Luck!
Bruce

Canon G15 HDMI out
by: Anonymous

I tried exactly that and can confirm it is not possible to a life view out of the HDMI.
The screen of the cam stays dark as long as HDMI is connected.
And you will only get the screens view in playback mode out of the HDMI. With all the menus.

Maybe this is helpful for someone.

Yes, it does help, Martin, and thank you for your comment. I appreciate it.
