So, next season me and my mate are going to out to Whistler to become ski instructors and just to shred for a year! Im looking at going to UBC afterwards so might be staying out there, we're from the UK. I like shooting video and am looking at getting a good DSLR camera but don't really know what i need! I use a GoPro Hero 3 at the moment for any action stuff like boarding and skiing when i go on a holiday but i want to get a decent camera for next year. I want to be using for photos and video so both aspects similarly important. I have been looking at the Canon line up and they look decent like the 650d 600d and 60d and then the Sony Nex-5N looks nice as well but can someone who know about camera gear advise me on where i should be looking for a Beginner. I don't want a beginner camera though not something so shit i will want to upgrade straight away i have a whole summer to earn money for whistler so can put a decent amount in. Also i know what sort of camera i need but i have literally know idea about lenses! What the numbers mean which ones are good and what are necessary because i presume the entry level lens kits are pretty crappy!
