Are you wanting to actually get into filming or do you mostly just want to make fun little edits with your buddies. If you don't want to get to serious then you cna't go wrong with a gopro. Also fill out the sticky in the M&A forums.
People who have been working with Premeire or one of the older final cut programs hate the brand new version of final cut because it is designed like i movie so if you get the new Final Cut it shouldn't be too bad of a transition.
It seems as though you don't know much about cameras so I'm just going to say it: do some research. Learn about focal length and how it effects the image on the camera.
A 17mm lense will have more of a fish-eye effect then a 40mm for instance. If your going to be using a T2i with interchangeable lenses, it's very necessary to know this sort of information when picking the right lenses.
Here is a very good site for visualization of different focal lengths. PLEASE go to it.
