I'm also curious as to whether or not it would be better to buy $500-600 dedicated camcorder as opposed to the T3i or any other Digital Camera?
My brother plans on creating his own automotive video blogs and was wondering if the Canon Rebel T3i would be sufficient. His price range is anywhere under $600 and would primarily use the T3i for when he shows off the cars features from the outside (not live action). He would, naturally, use the T3i with a microphone for added audio quality and would upload the videos for viewing on Youtube.
If you all could suggest any video cameras that would provide higher quality video at around the same price range that would be greatly appreciated.
Also, if anyone has any suggestions on live action camera around $300 that he could use to mount to the car (currently looking at the GoPro Hero 2 or 3 silver) that would also help immensely.
I apologize if a similar topic has already been posted, this is my first forum post.
