ForcilloDude the only difference between the t3i and 60d is the build and the clickwheel. Same exact sensor. Same images. I own the 60d and I'm saying that you can find a rebel for cheaper and it will give you the same images.
No i know, i also have a 60D (aswell as my new 7d2) and I personally think, after having used both for both photos and videos the 60D is much better.
It isnt just the build quality (which is stellar) and the clickwheel (which is also really really nice).
The 60D has more cross type AF points for taking photos, and it handles ML better IMO and i think it is a more reliable camera in general. I have killed 2 different Txi's (T2i & T3i) while on shoots and the 60D has never had a hiccup. It is a fucking tank.
I personally think the AF on the T series is straight fucking trash. Yeah, it works, but it hunts for decades.
The 60D was a killer cam for all arround use. And the OP specifically said he wanted a good cam for both. I would not suggest a T series to anyone looking to do photography, i just think having a few buttons doing multiple things makes you learn how to use the buttons more than it makes you learn to use the camera.
If OP goes with 60D, they make cheap battery grips on Amazon (35$) and then get some Wasabi Batteries (LP-E6 is 25$ish for 2) and then i personally think that is all you need to get into Photography and Video at the same time.
I just dont see the value in spending 50-100$ less on a T series when you could pick up a 50D/60D/70D for not much more.
