For Video: new T3i v refurb 60D
I think the t3i is better out of the box for video, but the 60D is better with the hacked firmware. It is unknown if the t3i will also be hacked. I've seen enough complaints of the 60D grip peeling away from the body to discount the better build argument that used to be a distinction between the rebel and XXD lines... bigger build, more comfortable with large hands, better balanced with big lenses, better AF... yes. better build? not so much any more. The intriguing aspect of the t3i is the zoom video function... should eliminate some of the video artifacts, and effectively turns your standard zoom into a super-zoom for video without significant loss of sharpness (albeit with some loss of bokeh quality).
