Hi, another one of these x vs y threads. But I've been watching specs, videos, forums etc... for over a week now. today is the day and I just can't stress myself to make the choice.
I want to film mostly yoyo videos, I want to start on music videos and short movies, learn to do that. I already have a camcorder which is a Canon Legria HFM 306, and I also have a go pro. We'll be 2 people filming, the other one is about to get himself a nikon 800D and he has already very good lenses. However I'm set on Canon.
the budget difference is of no matter between those two DSLR. The first lens I'm getting will be the canon 35mm f2 to get as close as 50mm as possible (with the crop sensor), then probably some wider stuff 22mm and shorter.
here is one feature that really makes the choice difficult, the 600D 3x digital zoom
but the 60d viewfinder and 9x AF points are also something to consider.
also, I often shoot outside for a long time and the 600D battery seems not to last nearly as long as the 60D
I'm a little more leaning towards the 60D tho, mostly for the build quality and viewfinder features, mostly for the longer battery life. On the other hand, the 600D seems to be really made with filming in mind.
this will be mostly used for filming as I already have a nikon D80 for photography right now (these things are good but hard to sell now, a little too old)
I'll head out and get it today (or at least order it, availability will ultimately make the choice for me if necessary) so I'd appreciate if you could take some time and reply as soon as you can, if you can't, no biggie, I'll still make a choice.
