I'm sorry to say, you are wrong (simple google search will help to see). the G7 does not allows to record internally and send out the signal via hdmi. you will need an external recorder in that case or get the g80

Hey Gregorio, unfortunately as Jonas said, the G7 doesn't have the capability to do internal recording and external monitoring at the same time.

You can, however, use a tablet or phone as a monitor through WiFi. This is good for remote monitoring and / or control. But as expected, this method will have lag and wouldn't be good if your intent is for focus pulling.
