@Jeff Kramer:

And what means that:

"If you selected "full screen view" via the info button - it just stays that way, the focus box thing goes away and a little red dot shows up in the upper right corner. Visual follow focus is very easy with an external monitor."

If its only a upscaled liveview image follow focus would be difficult.

From a quick search it looks like the actual image area of the 7D's video output is 1620x910, about 3/4s of 1920x1080. Good enough for follow focus but not full 1080.

Apparently, if you scan up that 1620x910 footage to full 1080 and compare that with the camera footage, the resolution is the same.

Just to verify, the Canon 550D = Canon T2i right?

Yes. In North America it's the EOS Rebel T2i. In Europe and the UK, it's the EOS 550D.

550d in Asia too

In Asia too, it's called the 550d, except in Japan where the Rebel is a "Kiss" camera.

Sounds like a different scheme than HDV or HDCAM but a similar principle. 1920x.84375=1620 1080x .842593=910.00044 so using your numbers they are playing with the shape of the pixels a little. You would need very good charts to see if there is any difference.

Strange... That's the same price as the 500D.

And 1349AUD is for BODY ONLY!!! The cheapest kit is 1500AUD (1350USD)
Canon USA has body only listed as 899USD for the kit!
In Shanghai, China (not on Canon's site though) I've seen it advertised online as 6500RMB (approx 940USD), and sales people are telling me 6100RMB yay! (900USD). BTW this price is amazing! I was thinking about a doing a "round table" type shoot, multiple cameras, but the cost would have been too high with previous HD-DSLRs... thank you Canon!



Seems the nice people of Oz are getting higher prices! Any other prices spotted round the world?

I completely agree! Currently US$988 is worth AU$1,001.28... So where's the other $347.72 going?

Not like I'm going to pay the RRP... I'm waiting for local stores to start getting stock... Then I'm going bargain hunting! ;)

550D/T2i body in the Netherlands will cost about 760 euro (US$1030; AU$1150) (whereas the 500D is 200 euro cheaper!)...

7D costs around 1250 euro, so for 500 bucks I can get me a nice extra lens or follow focus!

All local store prices, not the RRP from Canon.

T2i sample video?

If possible, I'd like to be able to download a sample of the raw video (any frame size, but 1080 preferred) from a T2i, when the cam is available, of course! I'd like to see how it edits as compared to my T1i. Thanks!

Why stop now?

Curious why this active thread has come to a dead end? I can't be the only one, but please, some final clarification on uncompressed hdmi out? Official recording in cam codec and bit rates, and 720p 60 frame rate or not?
Yes much of this has been answered at various times, only to be debated later. Could someone please just provide a definitive spec summary?
Maybe DVinfo itself?

Ken, we'll know much more as soon as the camera starts shipping. Nobody has it yet (outside of some select pre-release testers), but once it gets into people's hands then we'll have something to talk about (and a new forum to match).

Oooopse. My apologizes. I had wrongly assumed it was a released cam(ra). That explains a lot.
When will we know the exact specs? Based on the (pre)specs, it is a killer.
Really looking forward to this release with full details. Canon has taken the lead in the low/middle class cam, for a while now, and do not appear to want to let it go with their reach into this catagory. It appears the older low cost HD standards lock down, such as the old HDV spec, no longer apply. Finally!
