      Hi folks

      First thank-you for your help. I have a Canon Rebel T2i, and it’s video performance has not been great…specifically the auto focus for making informational videos. We have been using a Panasonic DMC-ZS50 for quickies and maybe it’s the facial recognition that works so well.

      I have a couple of Canon lenses to use, so thought perhaps an EOS 77D would be a good choice, but I’m a “vidiot” when it comes to these things. Maybe I need an actual camcorder of some sort?

      Opinions are welcome as I’m a bit blind here!!! Thanks!!

      The Canon EOS 77D (EOS 9000D in Japan) is a midrange DSLR that sits between the Rebel T7i and EOS 80D. It features Canon’s familiar 24MP CMOS sensor and uses the company’s newest DIGIC 7 processor. Dual Pixel AF is built-in for responsive AF and good subject tracking in live video and movie mode and, for shooting with the optical viewfinder, there’s a 45-point all cross-type system. The camera has a fully articulating 3″ touchscreen LCD along with an OVF with 95% coverage. It can capture Full HD video at 60p at a max bit rate of 60Mbps. Wireless features include Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth.

        If you have done well with the DMC-ZS50 you might want to consider the Lumix FZ80 super zoom bridge camera which has a few of advantages over a dslr. First it shoot 4K video, in up to 8 minute segments. Second it has a very good completely silent auto tracking which focuses the camera during video in 1 to 3 seconds. With a dslr, using auto tracking for video creates noise as the lens autofocuses. In video mode, the lumix fz80 is fully auto, choosing the best iso, aperture and shutter speed to get a well lit scene. Finally with a 20mm to 1200mm zoom lens, you can shoot anything from wide angle to close ups. Lest you think a camera costing less than $300 can’t produce striking 4K footage, look at this youtube video. I have several dslr’s which shoot HD video, but now I only shoot 4K on the FZ80 and the Coolpix B700 (24mm to 1440mm zoom, used for about $350).
