Watch it in 1080p!

For anyone whos interested in seeing the video quality on the 550d, here's a video test I did around london. I used a the 18-58mm kit lens, camera settings were also on default and I used manual focus.

I did some slight colour correction to it on after effects, but not a huge ammount, only a little bit.

The video qualities great, I really reccomend the camera for people who wanna make films, wish I had a 50mm lens though.

Really nice!

You will get a lot better quality (sharpness/colour/contrast) and better light performance (less ISO needed) with for example the 50mm 1.8 or 1.4.
I think if you are going to stick with Canon, the 1.4 is certainly worth considering.

Do note however, that if you do get the 50mm, since it is a 1.6X cropped camera, you are going to be getting 80mm, not 50mm.

You may also like the new Nikon 5100, but the Canon 550D is a lot cheaper now

The Siggy 50mm f1.4 is built better and focusses better Similar kind of money too.

Wow, that lens is huge compared to the Canon offering!
Slightly cheaper though by the looks of things, so I'll certainly look into it, thanks!
