HD video with EOS 7D

Hi,

I was using my 7D for still photo's a few nights ago and wanted to eventually take video through my 10" scope. When I turned to video mode on the camera it asked to put the lens on. How do I get it to take video using the telescope adapter ?.


Cheers,
Brett.

I don't know in reference to the 7D per se, but my 5D-II works fine without it in any mode. I just removed my 24-105 and hit the live view button. I then hit record and away it went - no issue. I can't imagine that the 7D is different, but maybe it is.

Brett, just disregard the message.

If you then hit the record button it goes to video mode, hit it again to start recording.

Cheers,
Jason.

Hi Jason,

Thanks. Yes the message is just a warning to attach the lens but it should be fine to video.


Cheers,
Brett.

The 550D does this too, except when I put a Sigma teleconverter on it before attaching to the telescope. Have fun with the 7D video, Brett.
