Your right, I'm still doing a lot of research. All I ever used was point and shoot

- can be found used starting around $450+, new kits can be found for ~500 and up
- Full 1080p recording @ 30fps, 720 @ 60fps
- 3" flip out LCD screen, that rotates so you could see yourself while you're filming
- kit includes a 18-55mm lens, which is actually quite nice for a kit lens
- Microphone jack, ( if you want decent audio for your YT films, nothing worse sucks than crappy audio )
- Can use magic lantern, a custom firmware that adds tons of video features to the camera ( cannon cam's only )
- Most canons have a pretty good selection of modes, the standard auto modes for sports, portrates, outdoors, etc, as well as some good manual modes.

those are some of the features you may be interested in. but its a very solid camera and is highly recomended by many people.
( i can't say anything about the sony's, i've only dealt with canons and nikons )

If you do a little research you'll find that dollar for dollar, the Sony's out perform the competitors in almost every way. (up to a certain price point) Higher IQ, higher FPS, IBIS, Cont AF, live view.... and the list goes on.

Dollar for dollar sony does win in everything but video mode thumb.gif nothing beats a used t2i in video dollar for dollar wink.gif

The problem with video is its never cheap and requires extra accessories. You will want to invest in good audio and some lighting even if its cheap bright lamps and you kinda need a fluid head tripod for smooth camera movements. Shooting video can potentially become waaay more expensive than photography because of accessories used to give the video higher production quality. For video lighting and audio is crucial to not having poor quality.

Its possible to hack the firmware for other dslr cameras for video as well the person that said only canons can do it is lying. Magic latern is geared for canon only but there are ways to hack other cameras like the gh2 which is a bang for your buck m4/3 camera that filmmakers use sometimes.
