Gotcha. Dual digi processors definitely helps for the fps with stills. I have not tried to shoot burst on the t2i yet, but I have heard it also goes for a very short time in RAW. I know the 50d I used to own was awesome and it was only 4.7 I believe. I never needed more and it would shoot for a while even in RAW.
The body is a HUGE plus. I bought a lot of protection for my t2i for that reason. A rubber casing as well as a rain coat. I figure that should take care of the problem and it should hopefully last a couple of years of abuse.
You look into the 60d at all? Just asking because saving money is always something I look to do. It has a body that would be graded between the t2i and 7d. The screen is a little nicer and flips up and such, which is a plus for people that may not want to buy an external monitor (dont know why you wouldnt). The flip screen is actually a concern with durability I guess since its on hinges, but I must say I have never popped my screen off an HVX. Dont know anyone that has besides Trent.
60d is 5.3 fps raw I believe. A little slower then 7d, but I would imagine that could be enough? Also has manual audio levels.
I havent heard great reviews about it other then its practically the same as the 7d and t2i and kind of an unnecessary inbetween.
Maybe look into it. B&H is selling those puppies at 1 g, which is still 600 less then the 7d.
Just trying to help.
Oh you dont happen to have an intervelometer for that t2i do you? I kept mine from my 50d and it doesnt work with t2i's but it works with 7ds and 60ds. If you have one let me know and I would be very happy to trade you.
