The camera does have a composite output--one of those mini to rca cables made by canon. The only issue is that you cannot output both HD and SD at the same time. So when video village wants an HD feed you have to figure out a way to get sd for your monitor. For me/us it was getting an SD feed back from vtr land. I'm not sure about an hdmi downconverter.
We tried an aja hdmi-hd/sdi converter box on the test day but it could only take up to 5 volts so that was no bueno for my sled (12/24). But that was also just to see if we could eliminate the hdmi cable from the equation--not to downconvert. A blackmagic box was found that would work so that lived at video village. VTR land then had ur average aja box that allowed me to get the sd feed from the hd/sdi signal.
If you have more questions, or If im causing more confusion, I could get you the vtr guy's info as he and I learned as we went in terms of what would work. He was incredibly helpful and great to work with.

For anyone interested, Canon just announced manual control of all the functions...
I'm not affiliated with them, but I've been doing a lot of testing with this thing...
Would you happen to have your hands on a pre-release beta of this firmware?
