I purchased the T2i and while watching a video about Magic Lantern I saw the feature Monitor USB. am I undeerstanding this correctly, can I tie into my copy of Adobe's On Location for direct to disk recording and live monitoring ?

I believe that's audio only. You'd need to record from the HDMI jack and even that's pretty compromised. Stick with the cards...

If it works all you'll record is a replica of exactly what you see in you camera viewfinder, it is not a clean output.

Like Noah wrote, is for monitoring audio only. You need a special cable for that.

The Canon 7D gives me composite video out (and audio) from the USB, which I use as the SD video feed for my Steadicam.

Why oh why don't all the Canon family have the same DNA?

Hi, Phil!

So does the T2i, but the "monitor with USB"-feature of Magic Lantern is for monitoring audio with headphones.

Ah yes Magic Lantern, not appropriate for the 7D. Oh Why oh why......

I just found out yesterday that my puchase of the T2i now makes it paramount that I upgrade my Adobe Production Studio Premium CS3 to CS5.5. Iwas going to upgrade anyway but I found out yesterday that CS5.5 now supports the T2i directly. In a video on the Adobe website I saw that I can taake my SD card plug it into the card reader in my laptop access it from Premier Pro and bang its there transcoding happens automatticly no need for to do anything. Best of all it automatically detects and fixes rolling shutter. Omg I can't wait to upgrade. I haven't seen it metioned anywhere but with all that Adobe is doing to support DSLR's it wouldn't surprise me if there was something in there to make dealing with Moire and Antialiusing issues
much easier. This is getting better all the time.

Supports directly without transcoding

Native editing

Rolling shutter rarely an issue. If it is. Warp stabilizer in AE. not automatic. Have to be applied then chosen. Rarely needed
