Nikon D800: There Are Limits on HDMI Resolution When Doing Simultaneous Record

Nikon | Imaging Products | D-Movie shooting functions – Nikon D800/D800E.

From @Cinesota’s Twitter feed

I covered this ground pretty thoroughly with the release of the D4, and I was surprised then that it didn’t get more ink.  If you want to record the clean HDMI output, you can’t also do a simultaneous record to the internal card.  If you do:

     “….When video is output through HDMI interface simultaneously with recording to a CF/SD card, output image through HDMI interface will be smaller than 1,280 x 720….”

A pretty serious limitation I thought.
