Re: Don't think so.......

I just tried this with the remote release button on the 270exII flash (should work the same as RC1/RC6) and I can start/stop video on a 5d ii.

1) Press AF-Drive button and select the 2 sec or 10 sec timer timer/remote setting. 2) Go to menu and set Live View/Movie func. set. to stills+movie 3) press Live View button 4) press remote release button to start/stop movie recording.

I can still remote trigger stills by either exiting Live View or by setting Live View/Movie func. set to just stills.
