So I am in the market for a video camera to put together some edits this season. A couple of my friends are entering quite a few big mountain competitions this season, so that will be a lot of what I'm filming. So not so much park and followcams, more filming from a little bit further away, and with a tripod.
I have baisically narrowed my decision down to something that looks a lot like an HV30 (or similar panasonic equivalent) with a wide angle full zoom lense and the Canon T1i, I would wait to buy different lenses for this until I had a chance to use it a few times.
I know these are very different cameras, so to keep it as simple as possible, I would really like to know what the downsides are to shotting video with the T1i?
I've done lots of research and seen lots of edits from it different places on the internet, so I know that it only shoots 1080 in 20fps and cant record continuously because the sensor gets overheated. I'm just wondering if there are any other downsides or issues with shooting video on a DSLR that I may have missed.
