If those are as good as the 35 I get both, looking forward to the release :-)

The focus ring could be loose maybe so it might need repaired.
BTW, does the distance scale on the lens move once you start turning the focus ring?
You understand that the camera doesn't have autofocus while recording, right?
A simple way to remotely start/stop is to reassign the shutter release to start stop video (you can do this in the menu) then use a timelapse remote or other shutter trigger to start stop.

At this point getting a 5DM3 makes more sense being that its only $800 or so more unless the little wifi and gps thing floats your boat.
Right, thanks for the helpful videos and details from the manual, I get the sense that the canon mobile app has not yet worked the video out (aka crippled), although it doesn't make a lot of sense why given that it's very much in control of all the camera's functions, and EOS Utility allows you to shoot video, no problem (no digital zoom possible on the T3i).
Given that there are non-Canon apps that also allow control over the camera, including video like http://dslrcontroller.com/ with a wired connection, my guess is that someone, and maybe eventually Canon, will come up with a great iPad app that will allow remote video shooting.
In the mean time, I wonder if it would work to turn on Live View so you can monitor the focus and exposure on your iPhone or iPad, then when you want to trigger the video, you do so manually on the camera. Although, this wouldn't allow truly remote video shooting, it would likely work just fine for most applications where you just want to use the iPad as an off camera monitor and controller. This does not work on EOS Utility as far as I can tell, but maybe there's a way to allow control from both the computer and the camera.
