I have considered trading my T3i for another 50D? Video use on the T3i is a convenience not a nesscessity, I can shoot raw video with the 50d and ML. The picture quality seems fairly similar, the T3i seems to do slighty better in low light. The T3i isn't quite as weather proof as the 50d, which poses a problem from time to time. The biggest killer for me having the T3i is the frame rate vs the 50d. There are just times that I would make better use to the weather and frame rate of the 50d vs the T3i. I really like the feel of the T3i, especially having a hand injury. I like the T3i flip screen, but just feel like I'm missing out on the odd moments that present themselves not having my 50d. Any comments or thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
