I love the way the 50 looks, but I'm also biased because I like longer lens portraits. I have the 28 myself, and have found myself wishing I could get a 35. The 28 distorts swiftly around the edges. Really any prime <100mm would prob work for the dude. However, the 50mm 1.8 only costs 150, which gives him money for a camera. Though I don't fuck with DSLR video anymore, that shit is dumb. ONE MX all day, and just waiting for that Alexa.50mm prime as his only lens is a bad choice on a crop sensor
get a 30 or 35 prime or a 17~50ish zoom like a tamron or sigma
aka these are photo cameras with video features, not video camers with photo features. the t2i/t3i/t4i/60d/70d all have the same sensor and capture the same quality video.build quality, weather sealed, flip out screen, takes faster pix , max shutter speed is 1/8000 vs 1/4000(t2i)If The T2i And The 60d Both Are 18.1MP Then Why THE FUCK are The Prices So Far Apart
This is true but you miss the more important features like the 7 has dual processors and more cross type focus points. On the other hand the 60 has a flip out screen and better color depth which may be more appealing since hes doing video primarily.aka these are photo cameras with video features, not video camers with photo features. the t2i/t3i/t4i/60d/70d all have the same sensor and capture the same quality video.build quality, weather sealed, flip out screen, takes faster pix , max shutter speed is 1/8000 vs 1/4000(t2i)If The T2i And The 60d Both Are 18.1MP Then Why THE FUCK are The Prices So Far Apart

T2i is definitely the way to go with that budget. Every time Canon brings out a new camera to the T series (t1i, t2i, t3i, etc.), they range around 1200-1500. Catching the t2i at $550 now is solid. You will never completely get away with shakiness in video til you put the money forward for glidecam and steadicam equipment. Since you are on a tight budget though - Be sure to read up on "Position" when editing in your given video software. You can also ghetto rig a steadicam for about $20, search for it on youtube. For your lens, the Canon 50mm 1:1.8 is definitely a good starter and should take care of most of what you need in the beginning (as well as portrait photos of your models).I have a general idea about Canon and Nikon cameras and stuff but im not sure what I should be getting. What kind of camera do i get if I mainly wanna catch footage, like high quality music videos and shit, and then photos every once in a while. My budget is around $200-700 with the lenses and everything.

Once you feel comfortable, get the Canon 50mm 1.8, though I must add it will look like an 80mm on your T3i due to the 1.6x Crop sensor. I recommend this because it is cheap; at a price of only $125 (I brought mine for $80 at Best Buy price matching black market Amazon), it is the cheapest lens you will buy. It will probably be best for portraits but if you are looking for a 50mm view on a crop you could get the Sigma 30mm 1.4 Art Version which I also brought due to Amazon Warehouse denting all the boxes. They went for $400 instead of $500. I love that lens and it never comes off my camera unless I am doing specialty shots or events. Only problem is it will vignette on a full frame if you ever decide to upgrade to full frame. I have no interest in full frame right now so I'm fine on that. Then I recommend getting yourself a set of Manfrotto sticks. They are the best bang for your buck imo. It will help with video and photos. The 50mm and the tripod would be the best way to spend about $200 for you.
