Should I get a DSLR or a camcorder?
My friend and I make YouTube videos and we are looking to improve our quality. Currently, we are using a cheap Nikon digital camera. We want something that has pretty good video quality, but would not like it to cost any more than $500. A lot of people have been recommending the Canon Rebel t3i, and I know that has good quality, but I heard videos can only be 12 minutes and sometimes we'll be filming for a half an hour. We would like something that an external mic can connect to, as I know many camcorders/cameras don't have good audio quality. Any suggestions? We won't be moving the camera, we normally just set it on a tripod and start filming, if that makes any difference. Thanks!
