I currently have a Canon 350d and a Canon HV20 HD Camcorder and I would like to upgrade to a single device that can capture both high quality stills and full HD movies at 24fps.
My preference would be a Canon and after a bit of research I've come up with the following options - 550d, 60D and 7D. I will mainly use the camera for family shots, holidays and the odd landscape pictures and to capture video of my two little girls... I would like my next camera to be last me a good 5+ years and I don't want it to be outdated in the next year of so.
Also, given the young family, I can't really lump a load of equipment around with me, therefore I would appreciate thoughts on a good all rounder lens that would cope well with still and movies to cover the above.
Budget is around £1500.
Thanks in advance.
Hi first any of the three will do what you want. The 550d will leave you enough money to get a lens or 2 extra. the 60d has a swivel screen which maybe better for the video 7d is the dearest option. what type of stills do you take it maybe the deciding factor
