Camera for making video

Hello,

I have canon 60D with EF-s 17-55 f/2.8 lens. I am making videos in fitness, where there is really bad lighting and the videos are not so good quality.

I am thinking of buying better camera, so i can make decent quality videos without taking additional light with me (youmust understand there are a lot of people, so i am not able to walk around with lights and all electricity).

So which camera do you suggest me and will i be able to use this lens EF-s 17-55 f/2.8 on this camera? My budget is 1500-2000$.

Thank you and regards,

Matevz

Re: Camera for making video

If you main most thing is videos, buy a real video camera. Not a DSLR that does video.  The $2000 limit might be a problem if you want to stick with Canon.  I don't do video but kmy friends that do and have Canon use the C100 or C100 Mk II.  I know they are EF mount but I am not sure if they can use EF-S.  My guess is they won't.

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

If you do stills also just get a T6i or T7i.  They will use your lens.  The video has certain limits, however.

The best Canon DSLR for making videos in your price range is the EOS 80D.  It has a beefy battery, and there is a battery grip available, too.
