    TXD300 and Cannon T2I

    I just got a Cannon T2i for a gift. Yeah, nice gift.

    I thought it would be fun to connect it to my txd300, but so far not much luck.

    It has a mini usb out that is SD out only to Y.

    It does have a Mini HDMI out for HD, but without having to pay $600 for a HDMI to SDI converter, not sure what else I can do.

    Any thoughts?

    Well actually you could use the A/V cable included with the camera to bring in Composite video into the XD300 but of course that would not be HD.

    TO get HD into the XD300 from this camera live you would need to go with a HDMI to HD-SDI converter.

    AJA makes some great ones as do BlackMagic Design.

    Its not possible to get live HD out of any Canon dslr without menus on-screen and when you hit record on the camera, the output changes to 480p.
