HD recording with Canon 7D

Does anybody know what record rate and what sampling is used by the Canon 7D for HD movies? Is it 50 MBit/s (or less?) and 4:2:0 or a real 4:2:2 sampling?

Yeah, from what I've seen it's just under 50 Mbps (48 or so). I think 4:2:0 is a fairly safe assumption, unfortunately. But if you can record live out of the HDMI port and bypass the compression... I think a lot of creative pros will be taking a long hard look at this thing.
