DSLR Tips: Shooting Video with the New Canon EOS 70D – How good is it?

With the 70D you can have your cake and eat it too: you get the benefit of interchangeable lenses for that nice DSLR style look, plus you can follow a subject around and maintain focus without having to struggle to do it manually.

Canon announces EOS 70D, successor to 60D (Video autofocus a key feature)

Secondary audio options for DSLR and Canon T2i – Zoom, Tascam, Rode

One thing I know with the Canon T2i (and T3i, 60D...) is that on-board camera audio is a non-starter for all but the most casual of applications. Just don't do it - fine for reference audio for syncing later, but for anything else external audio is a must.
