    Looks like I won't have to wait for a camera that can do video. I will still save for a couple that have the native ability but there is a program at sourceforge.net called:

    EOS Camera Movie Record

    that can capture the "Live View" output of a camera that is hooked up to a computer. So as long as I have some sort of computer hooked up to the camera, I can start doing short films sooner....yay!

    5 minute review:

    * It works
    * No continuous auto-focus
    * 21-22 FPS
    * Can't seem to find any documentation
    * AVI format: MotionJPG @ 28Mbit/sec 768 x 512
    * (Obviously) No Audio :p

    Neat project, could have some potential... :)

    Must be a pretty new program...I shot a shaky, 10-second video...pretty impressive so far...now I just have to monkey around with lighting...

    how much better is the video compared to a $100 web cam?

    As good as the photos it takes....IMHO...by which I mean...looks way nicer than a webcam...but I haven't used a webcam for awhile...so maybe they've gotten better...but this is a great solution to video...
