5D chroma sampling

Does anyone have information on how to get 4:2:2 footage out of a 5D MkII? I have seen some serious moire issues that I suspect have to do with the chroma sampling on board (4:2:0 if I understand correctly), but Canon does not seem to be very forthcoming with information about the true tech specs of their equipment in this case. Is there an output out of the camera that will send 4:2:2 data? A firmware upgrade/change that will support 4:2:2? Or is it just a limitation of the equipment and I'm SOL? ;)

Hi Steve,
The camera records 8b/420 (H264) and have no better quality out put than that.

For what it's worth, the reason that the 5d has so much trouble with moire patterns is because of the recording pattern the sensor uses in video mode. There is no workaround.

Google "line skipping" if you want to know more.
