This is the best price I could find the Canon EOS 550D body (without lens) that includes an extended 3 year warranty and 8GB SD Card. Its probably also worth adding the Mega Kit Upgrade for £30 as its a good price for a spare battery, let alone the Samsonite case and extra SD Card.
At half the price of the Canon 7D, this camera has an 18mp image but has identical features for film recording.
These DSLR cameras are great digital stills cameras but are the next generation for film photography. They have an unbelievable 1 sensor cmos chip that records at 44mbps, 1080p, 24, 25 & 30fps, also 720p at 50 & 60fps for great slow motion shooting. You have the advantage of filming with a natural film look similar to 35mm cameras but at a fraction of the price compared to the overall cost of a Sony EX3 Camcorder (only records at 35mbps) and DOF Adapter (ie. Redrock Encore 2). It films to SDHC cards or the new SDXC cards.
Websites are popping up everywhere with video footage of these Canon DSLR cameras.
