Default foray into the dark side (canon)

as a few people on here may know as well as shooting birds I like to make video.http://youtu.be/z4gClrAbF-Y
However the new canon 600d with video worked out the same price as a camcorder so I have passed to the dark side. Its with a fair bit of regret because I loved everything the e-520 did. Now though I don't need a dslr and camcorder, one does both. The other reason I got it was because I wanted to take better birds in flight shots and the 600d is quicker AF with more points. Unfortunately that means I am probably on the wrong forum now
I have learnt a lot from all you guys though so think I will still hang around..if thats ok with you

Hi Alex,

Life is too short not to get what you feel you need is the proper tool to meet your requirements. I, for one, will look forward to your posts in the CANON Forum And, when I happen to see them, I will respond.

After all, we're still involved in the same hobby. we just happen to use different tools that suit our purposes best.

Zig
