Default DSLR body for 500-550 euros.

I am looking for a DSLR body for around 500 to 550 euros. I want to be able to film in 1080P HD and want the best bang for the buck. I'm gonna use it mostly for filming, but am gonna do a lot of photography too. I will mainly take pictures of scenery, buildings, etc. What do you all suggest?

More then 550 euros for sure, about 900 euros is the lowest I seen in the EU. For the 500-550 euro price. Look at the canon 550D or 600D. Both have good 1080p HD and are much closer to the price point of 550 euros.

I would say the 550d or 600d looking at prices in the uk then it may have to be the 550d it will probably come in just at the right price
