Customer Question

I have both the A65 and the A6000. I've hooked up a monitor to both via HDMI hook up. As I do this the viewfinder won't function and the LCD goes blank. Can you help me with this? Thank You

Hello, my name is Rusty. Sorry to keep you waiting, it's because that's how the camera is designed. It shuts off the LCD screen to power the HDMI output. I don't know off hand which camera will do what you are trying to do, but I do know that they are hard to come by.
