Hi all, just joined the forum and this is my first post.
I have a quick question. Has anybody tried using their GH2 with a Lilliput 5D-ii 7" monitor? I have seen from reviews that it flashes and takes a few seconds to obtain a lock again when starting to record when using the Canon cameras. I am trying to find out if the same happens with the GH2. I was told that the problem with the Canon cameras is that the resolution of the HDMI output changes when switching to record. Does anybody know if the GH2 also changes resolution? There is a work around if I was to buy a different version of the monitor, but that means giving up on the resolution of the 5D-ii. I don't want to do that if I can help it though. So I am hoping somebody here knows the answer.

TIA

Colin

If anyone is interested. I bought the Lilliput 5D-II and it works great with the GH2. Only thing I wish the GH2 supported was live sound monitoring through HDMI. It is nice to have the UI still displayed but much smaller in relation to the image, so it is less distracting.
