    Nor would it have anything to do with LiveView video being like QVGA resolution or anything. :hsugh:

    I fail to see how the sensor is going to get fried anymore than when anyone uses liveview. If I understand it correctly, he's just rerouted the signal from the liveview feed and initiated a record command so that it records at the LCD resolution. Either way, the sensor is seeing the same amount of voltage/light/whatever else you think is frying it.

    Someone splain it to me better if I'm wrong.

    CHDK to the rescue, from the looks of it: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/40D

    I don't own a Canon DSLR, but I think this is pretty slick. Hopefully they can get this working.
