I'm always getting asked which camera I use when I'm shooting videos or stills. I bought the Canon T3i a while back and have been very happy with it. It's easy to use, the picture quality is great, and with an external mic it produces great video. If you are budget conscious, this is by far the best deal I've seen on the T3i.
This camera is refurbished but is $150-$200 cheaper than I've found it other places and it still comes with the full 1 year warranty.
If you're afraid of going the refurbished route, I have found better deals on the new cameras at Amazon.com
or even on ebay.
However, if your'e looking for the latest and greatest, I'd go for the Canon T5i or if you have a little more cash to spend, I LOVE the Canon 7D.
