Well got the 7D the other day and decided to give it a wing on video. first of all, I learned stabilization is even more important with video. Before I was concerned holding the camera steady for fractions of a second for a photo, and now I have to hold it still for complete seconds to minutes? Difficult. Now I know the 10-22 will come in handy for sure with this feature.
I also learned that a pistol grip head on my tripod is a very bad choice when using video. Guess I will have to pick up a new head as well.

But any basic advice in my direction is appreciated. feel free to let me hear it, just be nice, my feelings are easily hurt HAAHAHAH.

have you use the the 10-22 with video and in video mode does it auto focus or you have to manual focus?

Ive used the 10-22, it's nice.

You can AF in while the video is running, but it's not that great. It's better to just MF.

Thanks, the tripod I was using had a pistol style grip which is awesome for photos. You can move in any direction with a pull of the "trigger". However, this is a poor setup for video where you may want to just pan, smoothly.
Editing, I just used the standard program that came with the camera. It's functional. But looks like I may have get aperture 3 for more editing possibilities.

the AF does not work very well when recording... Usually it will pull the view out of focus further then run back into focus. It is not smooth at all and you have to press the button to get it to refocus, it is not full time AF. You are best off manually focusing like the OP said

What is the secret to getting the camera to focus where you want it? Did you use manual focus? My manual says that continuous focus of a moving subject is not possible with AF. Even with still subjects, my camera goes out of focus when I move it from foreground (in focus) to background subject (goes out of focus in AF.)

Manual focus at infinty or follow focus. Follow focus takes practice.

The video I shot? ... I focused on the center of the box's height and locked it on manual from that point onward. x5 or x10 will help in live view.

So, follow focus and zoom are going to require both hands and a good tripod plus lots of practice.
