There's a big technical problem with movie mode on Canon DSLRs: the
EOS system was not designed for contrast-detect autofocus. As you may
be aware, the XSi/450D takes a number of seconds to autofocus in
contrast-detect mode.

Any movie mode would basically be fixed-focus, which would put it at
a big disadvantage over even the least expensive digicam.

For now. I am sure they'll find a way to do it reasonably. It's in their interest.
