Most brands can at least do 1080p through the HDMI.
Yes, the intention is for those cameras to be able to use an external *recorder*, a 'clean' or 'pass through' output, as the OP was hoping.

The Pentax is simply sending the Live View down the cable, which is downsampled, and contains all the text and numbers from the overlay display. That's what you want if you're using an external *monitor*. You can carry the camera in a rig on your shoulders and not have to put your eye to the OVF.
