Hi,I`m on a tight budget and I need a decent HD camera. At the moment I`m considering a sony hx9 or a used canon 550d(rebel t2 in US). Canon will obviusly be more expensive bu it it worth it? I already have a DSLR for taking photos and I hate lugging it around every time I go somewhere and I`m afraid it would be the same with making videos.
This is the kind of videos I will be making...hopefully.

Does anyone use this camera? Does background defocus also work in video mode?
