    I’ve just upgraded from the Cannon C100mk2 to the C200. With the C100 I was using the Ninja Blade as both an external monitor and recorder. When using the Ninja Blade, I didn’t have to do anything but plug it in a hit record and it recorded a clean ProRess file. Through the Ninja Blade I could see and monitor everything that appears on the cameras LCD screen such as Audio Levels, Battery Life, The recording time on the SD cards etc But it didn’t record all of this data onto the ProRess file. It was the default, I didn’t have to change anything in the settings.

    Different story when I upgraded to the C200. I stupidly assumed that the combination of the C200 and Ninja Blade would work the same way it did with the C100 mk2. Unfortunately, the ProRess file I recorded onto the Ninja Blade had recorded my subject and all of the data that appears on the LCD screen. So when looking at the files it looks like a recording of the LCD screen. I really want to be able to record a clean ProRess file onto the Ninja without all the data that appears on the LCD screen. How can I make sure it doesn’t while still being able to see the data from the camera on the monitor and keep an eye on the Ninjas battery life?

    The Ninja Blade has served me well but as it’s getting old and sometimes plays up but once it’s recording it does the job well. I still went out a purchased a Ninja V as a back up which also recorded interviews with the C100 perfectly.

    Can anyone please tell me what I need to do to record a clean image onto an external monitor, in my case either the Ninja Blade or V, using the C200 without recording the data you see on the cameras LCD screen? I have fiddled around in the settings but can’t find anything that will stop this from happening.

    Any tips, tricks or advice would be most appreciated

    I have no idea to be honest, I’m wondering if that’s the kind of thing you could ask Canon or if they wouldn’t be able to help because of the Ninja stuff not being Canon… maybe worth a go? Too technical for me lol
