Tom, you can email me a small 1 minute clip in native MVI format, I can try loading it in Adobe Premier elements 8, 4,3, Corel Video Studio Pro X3. Be happy to test it for you. Might be worth checking before you blow a hundred bucks. Though you may be able to download a demo version from Adobe.
I have been playing with EOS Camera Movie Record that allows you record with Canon cameras that have live view like the 40D and records directly to computer hard drive in AVI format..Not the same as 5D at all. I've been dreaming of a 7D also. :)
