Connecting an external Video Camera and Recording onto that camera at the same time.


I use an external Sony FDR-AX700 video camera when I am conducting a Zoom gathering.  I would like to ALSO record with that same camera onto the SD cards loaded into the camera.  However, whenever I push 'record', the Zoom screen goes black. I am wondering:  is there a video setting that allows me to use an external video camera AND also record onto that external camera's SD cards?  I want to use the Camera Recording rather than using Zoom recordings, so that my subject (speaker) fills the screen for the entire presentation rather than just a tiny window on the side (when the presenter goes to shared screen).  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thank you.

This is very much dependent on the camera you use. There are plenty of cameras that can output a clean feed via USB/HDMI while recording to an SD card, but plenty that can't. 


This is a question for Sony forums, not Zoom, but after some quick searching, it does appear that this camera can do what you need it to.
