--capture-movie currently would capture preview frames. Weird that it does not
work for this EOS.
Newer Canon EOS DSLRs (around 7D and later) : Switch the camera to movie record mode on the camera. Then run gphoto2 --set-config eosviewfinder=1 --set-config movierecordtarget=Card --wait-event=10s --set-config movierecordtarget=None --wait-event-and-download=2s (in 2.5.6 or later, replace eosviewfinder to viewfinder).
