Sorry to post a question without doing lots of research first, but I'm on a very tight schedule before making a purchase. Hoping that my most favourite Canon forum members might be able to help me out? :o Puhhhleeeaaasee?
Summed up in the title:
I have the 50D. Thinking of selling it to justify upgrade. (Possible slight problem in getting my money back on my 50D, as I'd be selling in Australia, with a US warranty, so essentially no warranty) I am happy with the 50D and apart from the video functionality, I am not aware of anything else that I would otherwise want to rush out and buy the 7D for.
I also have a point and shoot Ixus, that I currently use for video clips.
I am considering upgrading to the 7D for the dual video capability, rather than carrying around two cameras.
Other option is to go for a dedicated camcorder (thinking of something in the US$300 range).
Is the quality of video the same/better with the 7D compared to something like the Canon Legria FS200? Am I correct in assuming that with the 7D, my main advantage (in addition to carrying only one camera) is I can use all of my lenses to shoot video too. Is that correct?
Is there any advantage of buying a camcorder like the one I mentioned, over the 7D?
Thanks and sorry for the dumb questions!!
