There are always a lot of questions about hooking up a Canon DSLR to a standard definition monitor. The special cable you need normally comes with new cameras, but a lot of people either lose it or buy used and don’t get the cable. If you don’t have it, the cable is called a AVC-DC400ST cable and you can find it here for about $10. Make sure the cable has a red, white, and yellow RCA leads, some of the cables for sale are miss labeled and are actually AVC-DC400 cables which don’t output stereo audio.
