this is very exciting, i've been waiting for something like this to happen for a while now.

chuchin: i don't have any experience with arm/digic but i'm willing to pitch in any way i can (i have a 500d of course and i have no problem installing highly experimental firmware on it). is there any way i can help or for now is more like a one man show until things gets a little bit more advanced?

I registered to be a cheerleader for this project! YOU GO CHUCHIN & A1EX!!!!

If you guys could make external mic input and manual controls (aperture, etc.) work for video recording. I will hand type, not paste 50 times you two rock!

This looks like the best work so far. People have tried off and on many times and gave up.. Remember: "If you build it, they will come".

*Super EXCITED!!!!*

Obviously a firmware hack can't enable a hardware feature like external mic input.  I just added an external mic input.  I plan on making and instructables for it but for now I followed this youtube video.

Nice mod robbz23, are the holes to small to replace the wire with some 14 gauge wire and maybe put in a xlr socket with a small enclosure? I want to put in a Arduino board but I don't know where to solder it. I like this controller http://www.hdrlabs.com/occ/index.html maybe it can be use as focus puller.
