Hey guys, I'm awaiting the macbook pro on which I'm gonna do music and video productions. I haven't bought the camera yet, so everything is open. My max is around $850 in total, but gladly less. I'm gonna use this cam for YouTube videos mainly - focusing on instructional videos (music lessons, tech tutorials, reviews, live concerts/studio jams, greenscreening) and hopefully later on for documtary movies. So it's paramount that the video image quality is as crisp and pro as possible with this amount of money. I've been looking at the Canon HF S200 And then get a 16 or 32gb sd card for it initially. I like all the manual video control's and the fact that I can get/use other Canon DSLR and video lenses on this. So I've more or less settled on this if I go the video camera route. BUT then the big question is, should I get a DSLR instead? The t2i comes to mind because it's actually even cheaper than the S200 (with the 18-55mm lense - I btw have no idea what lens to go for with the purchase..the included? just get the camera and get a lense seperate from the get go? What..) Why I'm leaning towards the t2i is because of the quality of the video...I haven't seen direct comparisons but I always think the expensive canon dslr video's that I see look more pro, than the ones done on these consumer video cameras.. So long story short I'm not quite sure what to do...I do like the fact that with a DSLR I can also use it as a really good PHOTO camera - which would probably be a big plus when it comes to doing my own marketing and website etc. (though I think the S200 would take OK pictures aswell, a DSLR would definitely be better) Help and suggestions much appreciated !
