Canon EOS Rebel T5
Up next is another one of the best DSLR video cameras for the money. This one is also extremely popular among the video camera world (the entire Rebel line of course). It is a bit cheaper than the previously listed DSLR so if you wanted to save some money this may be a better option for you (they’re even cheaper refurbished if you’re up for it). This one gives us 1080p HD recording with their DIGIC 4 Image Processor. The unit has a built-in 3.0″ LCD screen for Live View while you record to get a better feel of what you’re filming. It also has some solid recording quality even in dim light due to their 63-zone, dual-layer metering system that helps expand the ISO range. It has this additive feature called “Scene Intelligent Auto” which auto-detects settings based on the environment if you don’t feel like customizing them.
The overall construction of the Canon EOS Rebel T5 video camera is pretty rugged and lightweight, so you’re not getting a dinky toy here. If you take proper care of it, this will last you quite a while, deeming to be a wise investment if you wanted a more budget-friendly model to grab. It also comes with its own lens kit so you can use it right out of the box.
