Okay, finally got over the complete intimidation of this thing. Went out and shot some stills and clips. I know this sounds absurd, but when I plug it into the computer, it opens up in iPhoto and I can see it mounted in iPhoto but I cannot drag the video clips to the desktop. Also, there is no Canon 7D on the desktop and I don't see it in the Disc Utility either. Went to FCP's log and transfer window and nothing there either.
I must be doing something wrong with this thing. Suggestions?
Steve download the Final Cut Pro Plug in from Canon's website. Then the footage will show up when you open Final Cut and Log and Transfer window.
Under the drivers window and it's the Canon 5D plug in. It will work for 7D and if the camera plist is modified also for the T2i. I have the camera plist file if you want me to email the modification to the file to you. Works wonderfully.
It will allow you to bring the footage in as Pro Res and edit it easily.
