Best simple Canon for video with external radio mic?

 

 

Hi there, 

 

I'm looking for recommendations for a Canon to shoot video predominantly and that can take an external radio / lapel mic? It's for a college that wants to set up a video corner, with kit all the staff can use, hence wanting something straightforward. 

 

Any help much appreciated,

 

Thank you.

If your primary interest is a video camera, then buy a camcorder, either a consumer or professional grade model.

Thank you... 

... I did wonder about that, but it's just for social media ( ie doesn't need to be phenomenal quality), and they could really do with being able to shoot stills too...hence my wondering!

Buy a camcorder and a camera.  Consumer grade DSLRs are not suitable for use as video cameras.  They overheat.
