60D vs 600D Filming?

I recently got my T3i destroyed, and was wondering if I should re-buy another 600D? My budget is around 600D and 60D (max). But I noticed a huge price drop on the 60D. Maybe upgrade? Does the 60D have better HD video recording then the 600D? I like taking pictures, but I'm more into filming. One feature I like about the 60D is that its slightly better with pictures, and has better weather proof sealing, compared to the 600D which has a digital zoom which I never use. Which one records better video?

Basically the same, but I haven't had any problems with my 60D. Several times I've used a T3i for an extended period of time it overheats. Another pro is if you decide to move up to a 7D, 5D2, or 5D3, all the batteries are the same.
Also the 60D feels better in the hands.

I prefer the 60d to the T3i for things like ISO 1/3 stops and better battery. Did you have Magic Lantern on your T3i?

No, I just learned about it. It looks really good on both cameras. Is it easy to install on both cameras?

I had the same dilemma and went for the 60D because of the better ISO, battery life, and sturdier and easier to hold (for me, at least) body.

I can't comment on the performance of the 600D but, while looks should be irrelevant, the 60D looks a more professional package. If you end up doing a video for anyone the 60D would help to instill the Client with more confidence than the rather cheap looking 600D.

@John
I totally agree!


I have a 1.4 50mm prime Lenses, so I'm just going for the body. Kit lenses suck! My side is leaning towards the 60D, cos maybe I can fix the 600D ( the screen is like almost broken off) lenses busted, but can still shot lol

lol @ camera snobbery

Stretch a bit further and get 7D rather than the cheaper looking 60D

If video is what you use your camera for most you should also consider the T4i. It has better video capabilities than the T3i and 60D with continuous auto focus and a couple other options. I agree with others that the 60D feels better in hand then the Rebel bodies but that is subjective to each person.

I don't really like the whole continuous auto focus for video, because it could be unpredictable in some moments, can you turn it off? I might find it handy at times.

You can turn it off, it also has a stereo mic built in which is useful. Fps is 5 (only slightly slower than 60d @ 5.3fps) and the lightweight body is good for some things like cranes and sliders used in video.

Use your portfolio to instil confidence in your clients, not the size of your body.

I think I'll just go with the 60D, and install Magic Lantern:)

For video wise, both camera have the same sensor and the video quality should be the same. For photo, 60D have a slight edge due to the 9 cross-type AF points which is slightly better in term of focusing.

Magic Lantern is now compatible with both 60D and 600D.

Personally I would go for 60D as the price different is very minimum but it comes with 9 cross type AF and the camera body fit your hand better. Cheers.

I'd get the T4i instead of the 60D. In fact, I did just that a few weeks ago. The T4i has the same ISO as the 60D and it has the better processor - DIGIC5. You can get a T4i with the 18-55 lens on Amazon for about $649 right now. I got it for $593 (with 18-55) during Christmas. They were selling the Body Only for more! The T4i body only is going for $648, so you may as well get the lens and sell it.
