It would be great to store the video directly to a laptop, and even better to be able to use it as a monitor. Is this possible? If so, has anyone tried it, does it work well?
[!--quoteo(post=0:date=:name=Chris Breeze)--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE (Chris Breeze)[div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]You can capture video remotely using the 5D Mark II with Canon's remote capture software. The functionality is limited to capturing the video to the camera's memory card only and there is no live view display on the PC during capture. Currently it isn't possible to capture video using DSLR Remote Pro.
Recording the live view images isn't really a satisfactory option as the frame rate is too slow, the resolution is limited to around 1024x700 and there is no sound.[/quote]
