Does anyone know the true color depth of the D600's HDMI output? I've read that it's uncompressed, but also that it's 4:2:2. Which is it? 4:2:2 is a compressed space AFAIK, because it's discarding color data. So is the HDMI port true uncompressed 4:4:4? Is there a quantifiable listed spec somewhere that confirms what the actual color depth of the HDMI port is? Now that there is a firmware fix that allows you full 1080P throughput, this data access point can be useful when doing bluescreen or greenscreen keying.

Thanks for any info on this.

    Unfortunately it doesn't answer the colorspace issue, whether or not it's 4:4:4. This may simply be implying that it doesn't add ADDITIONAL MP4 compression.
