Gotcha, all very helpful!

So what about a memory card? Any recommendations for the T2i?

You dont need the speed of a Sandisk Extreme for video recording on a DSLR. They're capped at 29:59 in recording. Class 6 or faster is all you need, Class 10 if you want a bit more speed.

Aren't there certain Class 10 cards that won't work with the T2i?

Also, not sure why you want to be so close to the subject. If you need it to fill the frame, buy a lens with a longer focal length. Not to mention, the closer you get to the minimum focusing distance (MFD), the more exaggerated depth of field becomes. That can be a curse or a blessing depending on your style, but if it's for video.... I would say curse.

As a Nikon user, this is my favorite post in the thread.

Another vote for the T2i. I just shot some video with it last night. it's pretty awesome smile.gif

I don't see why there would be any issues. That being said, you don't need a class 10 card by any means. A faster SD card will only make a difference with continuous photo shooting, not video recording. Class 6 is sufficiently fast for 1080p 30fps shooting, with a minimum transfer bitrate greater than the camera's average bitrate. The camera also has a buffer, so a class 6 card will be no problems smile.gif

Gotcha, I'll search around for a nicely priced Class 6-8 then. +rep to all who've helped.

A quick update. I've now narrowed it down to the T2i and the Sony NEX 5N. I will no longer be needing an external mic jack as I will be using a recorder. The 5N's video looks absolutely stunning to me although it is a bit more expensive than the T2i.

Plus, the autofocus seems to be quite formidable. thinking.gif

I'm not sure if you're being facetious or what, but I can't think of a single Nikon in his price range that rivals the T2i for video features.
