Ooh, nice. Thanks.

Any suggestion for quickly covering the ovf during live mode? That little plastic thing on the Canon strap is a pain in the you know what, especially because you need to remove the cover of the ovf first.

I would throw my lens cloth over. But liveview on the canon, the mirror is in the lock up position. So you really don't need to cover it.

Interesting. Good to know. The manual says to cover it, but perhaps that's wrong -- or maybe they fixed that after the 40D?

nope, sing bags are what you are after if you want horizontal access.

Do these dSLRs all film with the lenses wide open, or can you adjust the aperture for video? How does that work?

I am actually not really sure, I have HD on my camera, but never really use it much. Think with the t2i on, you can adjust the aperture.
