i already have two nikon lenses so i would only need to get the body of the nikon but i would have to get the whole body and lense for the 7d i read a comparison between the two and the final score was nikon 69 canon 7d which one should i get im about 70 video and 30 photo which one should i get or if theses arent for me any suggestions
I shoot with a Nikon and love it. Technologically they are very similar to Canon, but Nikon is a smaller company and makes primarily cameras (not that that matters that much). Even though I prefer Nikon, if you want to use your camera for video I would get the Canon and sell your Nikon lenses. That being said, even the cheapest camcorder will take better video than the dslr because they are made to focus properly for video. Finally, the d7000 is a lot of camera for an amateur photographer. I shoot with a d40 but spend loads more on lenses, which are what really matter I think.
I think that the statement about a cheap camcorder shooting better than a DSLR is not true at all....
A ton of really good filters on here (Will Start, Zac Moxley, Mike Blatt etc) all shoot with either primarily DSLR's or have them as a secondary camera. DSLR's are actually really great for video, and a "cheap camcorder" isn't even going to compare to a DSLR quality wise.
either way, wait for these two great camera's replacements if you can. the d7000 might not be replaced that soon but the d400 is coming out very soon, and i believe the 7d is due for an update as well.
