Canon 40D hacked to record movies


Feeling a little out of the DSLR movie-shooting crowd? Understandable since almost every DSLR announced within the last few weeks have had the new capability, but one chap hacked his Canon 40D so he wouldn’t feel so left out. The clip embedded above shows that in fact, he is recording live off the camera, not via the TV-out; here is a clip from the camera. Granted, you aren’t going to be shooting an HD commercial with the newfound ability, but for the occasional clip, it doesn’t seem so bad if he can work out the bugs.
