Torn between purchasing the Nikon D5300 or the Canon 70D

I've been researching a lot and came to the conclusion that I should purchase the 5300. I then started looking at the 70D for it's positive comments about video.

I care about picture quality but I also care about video. I will use my camera to shoot video as well.

I'm wondering if the d5300 will be sufficient enough when it comes to video.

If they are similar in quality of photos then I was thinking of switching to the Canon.

I won't be shooting in low light very often and most of the time out doors.

This is my first DSLR and I don't have any lens so I'm not really locked into a particular brand. I would like to stick with Canon or Nikon.

I would like to expand to a full frame camera which could be years down the road based on how much I learn.

I know that once I make this purchase it will keep me with the brand I choose most likely.

Any help or guidance will be greatly appreciated. Let me know what questions I can answer so I can get better advise.
