I have been a long time reader and now a first time poster
I am in need of your help.
I am an avid photographer and videographer. I have done a lot of videography and video editing, but one day I decided to try photography and since then I've been loving it. In 2009, I picked up the Nikon D3000 18-55mm & 55-200mm lenses and got an extra SB-700 flash. It was a great way to learn and become familiar with dSLR's, but it didn't cut for a lot of projects and events. Now I am looking to ugprade, and here is where I need your help.
I need a dSLR with good video functions. I have often heard and read that Canon is superior than Nikon with video in dSLR's, is that still true? For the video functions, I need 1920x1080 (30, 25, 24 fps) and 1280x720 (60, 50, 30, 25 fps), and good image quality. What exactly from Canon made filming better (if the rumors are true)? I would need to get my upgrade latest mid June. Which Camera would you guys suggest I should get between Canon and Nikon? I will be taking pictures of professional events and lots of studio type photography, while I will be doing a lot of high quality filming. I will sell my D3000 with the lenses and keep my flash if I stick with Nikon or sell it if I switch to Canon. I am struggling so much on what I should do, and I really need your guys' help.
Edit: I am willing to pay up to around 1,800€ (2,350$)
