If you can get one for that price the Canon EOS 550D would be an excellent choice for video. If you're in any doubt take a look at the work of young film maker Ross Anderson (website: http://dustfarm.com/ ) whose amazing work is all shot on the 550D, believe it or not!

If you can't, have a look at the Sony A58 and the Panasonic M4/3 range of cameras. These are excellent for video and within budget, give or take £20

I made a bid on ebay for £230 for a 550d last night and it went for £270 body only used mint...But I've found that the 600d is going for£299 new on digitalrev so theres no point getting a 550d now for the prices they go for.
