I would disagree with you that the t2i is inferior to a camcorder.

In terms of usability, I might agree with you. You can't simply go out to a soccer game and expect to get a good quality, in-focus video of your kid playing the game. Ergonomics are horrible. No articulating screen sucks.

But if you take the time to set up your shots, and you have a specific outcome in mind, and your camera's steady, the results you can get from a DSLR are far superior to most video cameras.

I did say the DSLR is superior in quality

I'm not sure how you edited / rendered your video, but it's very jumpy and has severe compression artifacts.

I just assembled and output it Zoombrowser, but then I had to recompress it to get it under the 2gb limit of youtube.

Perhaps I should start a pro vimeo account.

I really like the scene of the bee on the flower. Very nice.

I have lots of bees on flowers, I will upload some more
