I apologise if this has been hashed to death already but I'm trying to decide between the two kits. Let me preface by saying I really want the 60D but it's out of the budget right now.
I am a rank amateur but I'm working my way through the Digital SLR for Dummies book before I buy. I've read up on the differences between the two cameras and I really like the articulating viewfinder on the T3i. I'm still a bit confused on the differences in movie mode though.
I was ready to purchase the T3i with an 18-55 lens for $749 but then I saw a final clearout package on the T2i for $899 which includes the 18-55, 50mm, 430EX flash and bag. The store is also offering $100 discount if you turn in any working or broken camera...so $649 or 799. I'm really stuck and need some helpful advice.
Sorry, almost forgot...I will be mainly taking pictures of kids and travel shots.
