How can I monitor video in the T2i as well record?
I tested with an HDMI from camera to TV, but I only get a signal to the TV, the signal doesn't show on the camera when attached to TV.

When an HDMI cable is attached, the camera switches off the lcd-screen on the cam but will record video to the card.

Is there to view on both? So the camera-op can see the T2i LCD and the director and producer can view on a TV or video village.

To my knowledge, there's no way of convincing the camera not to shut off the LCD, when plugging in an HDMI cable.

What Peter said. There is no way to do both. Further evidence that if you want a fully featured video camera, you need to get a fully featured video camera.

These are still cameras that happen to shoot video. They don't have video mirroring, which is what you want. It also crops the image and puts up your camera info around the image.

I do have an external monitor which helps for focusing.

I have seen a few ways but it just adds on equipment.
I think it was hdmi out to a small black magic box that did SDI out to a tiny LCD mounted on camera for operator and another SDI out to video village. But that also needs external battery power for black magic box.

I was hoping an adapter or magic lantern would work and save money and weight.

I've read the with the HDMI to monitor set up the quality of the video on the monitor looks terrible once you hit the record button. Is that true?

That is true. Because the HD signal then switches to a low res SD signal.

Magic Lantern on T2i can give clean 1080i output to record to Black magic hyperdeck shuttle for instance and shuttle can mirror the input on another hdmi out (through)
