So semi strange question, but hopefully a fairly simple one. For recording video, which of these will have better quality? I know the Canon 7D can record HD video, but is it the same/worse/better then the Canon Vixia? Thanks for any input. O, i will be recording in Las Vegas for my friends 21st birthday. These are the only two camera options i have as well. My friend will let me borrow his 7D, and my mom has this Camcorder. Thanks again in advance. Also, the camera is not for professional anything, i just mean overall, what would the best solution be. When we are walking around vegas, and he is partying his face off, which camera will give me overall better video/sound quality. Im very novice in camera/camcorder, but i can somewhat handle my own with a DSLR as i took a digital photo class in college. But, if the DSLR is going to be a huge headache then it wont really be worth it to me. Thanks in advance again.
