I just noticed that when hooking my EOS R up to an external monitor/recorder, even with the camera set to record at FHD and 23.98p, it outputs to the monitor at 59.94p. Is there any way I can get it to output over HDMI at 23.98p? It seems the only way to do this is to set the camera to 24p mode, where then obviously it's outputting at FHD and 24p. Which, from reading online is not a big deal compared to 23.98, but it seems weird that the camera won't output at the same framerate it will record to internally.

Yep, the only way to get it to output at 24p is to turn on a special 24p mode, which states very specifically that it is 24p, not 23.98.

Well, after some looking around, it looks like yes, they only allow you 59.94, or 24p over HDMI. Why does Canon have to be so arbitrarily weird like this??


I guess it's not a huge deal, other than some broadcasts seem to require the specific frame rate of 23.98, not 24, but I will probably never need to worry about that.
