Canon 5d Mark iii and Blackmagic Designs new video assist monitor
So with Canon's 5d Mark III uncompressed hdmi video out, you get a YCbCr 4:2:2 8-bit video. Blackmagic Designs new video assist montor records in ProRes at 10-bit 4:2:2. This might be a noob question, but what happens to the bit depth if an 8-bit output is recorded in 10-bit? I just wondered as I am considering utilizing that option. Thanks!
