Hello everyone,

I'm trying to use my A9 for some product videos—very simple webcam stuff, not why I bought an A9 but I think it ought to be able to handle it. However, even in Movie Mode, our monitor includes the black strip of camera settings along the bottom of the screen no matter what I do with the display button. What am I doing wrong? When I simply play back the video on the computer it shows the normal view. Back to hooked up as a webcam and the strip is there again.
