I want a camera to take better videos and photos than my GoPro and iPhone. I also don't really want to sacrifice a lot of my free time for messing around with my camera. I know that is kind of backwards for someone buying a DSLR but I am basically looking for a really nice point and shoot that also takes great video, and these are what I'm considering. I want to use the camera mostly for filming ski edits with a basic stabilizing rig and taking photos of cool things that I see. Which of these two would be better for a beginner DSLR? My budget is $800 currently, hoping to get a good overall setup.
I can't really see myself upgrading the body for a while, just buying lenses where necessary. I'm looking at a new T5i on Ebay with the Canon 18-55 STM lens for about $500 versus a used 60D from a friend (he is the second owner) for $800 including a heavily used Tamron 17-50 and Canon 28-135 (both have a lot of dust and stuff on the inside). I will be buying a wider lens no matter what, probably a Rokinon 8mm.
I'm currently leaning towards the T5i because it is cheaper and seems more lightweight and beginner friendly (the 60D has much nicer lenses but they are both pretty dirty). The T5i also has better video auto focus than the 60D- will this make much of a difference when filming skiing?
Here is the T5i from Ebay- its about $150 cheaper than the same setup on Amazon, no clue why
