Also realize that the Canon EOS 7D is a still picture camera. I haven’t heard anyone complain about the SLR’s “professional” video capabilities, but the very fact that it’s not a “video camcorder” makes it seem like a blind shot in the dark. Not saying that the SLR camera produces poor-quality video, but if you’re not also a prime photographer, than purchasing this camera won’t be that much worth the money. It does have great features in terms of resolution and lens interchangeability, but at your level, I wouldn’t aim at something that is primarily photo that claims to excel greatly in video. The video quality is good, but probably won’t beat mostcamcorders in the $1,500 range.
BTW, I forgot to mention that the XHA1 does not have lens interchageability. If 35mm lens (and your budget) isa MUST, then I’d go for the Canon SLR camera.
