The time has come... my Canon Rebel XS has been great since 2010, and I'm still feeling guilty/unsure about upgrading it, but with my upcoming travels next year I really want something I can shoot video with instead of the iphone 4 I used last time (which is better than nothing, but it'd be really nice to have some usable video footage). I've had the XS for 5 years and love it, but it's gone all over with me including across many mountains and oceans and rivers and though it's doing fairly well, I am noticing some little issues with autofocus and different modes every now and then. My main reason, though, is still the video and something slightly more professional, since there have been so many camera upgrades since '10. I have a budget of $400 ish... not looking to go much further than that, as traveling costs a lot too. I'm not looking for the latest-and-greatest, just something a little newer than the XS with video capability. I currently have a 50mm f/1.8 which is nice, so I'm thinking of sticking with Canon so I can keep using that, but it's a hard choice as Nikon has some super nice looking cameras as well. So, if you'd recommend one of those more highly, I'm open to it! What I'm thinking is--a camera body such as the T3/4/5 (i? I've had a hard time researching the differences between, say, the t5 and the t5i, they seem fairly minor) or Nikon D3200/3300, and instead of getting it with the kit lens, just get a 18-135mm separately. What would be a good choice for an inexpensive camera body? And would it be wise to just get the 18-135mm since it has such a wide range? Is it worth the price? As I said, I travel a lot so it'll go everywhere with me, lots of pictures of landscapes/architecture/nature, but I use it for everything even portraits and commercial shoots so keeping the 50mm I already have may be wise. I'm not quite a beginner, still an amateur, but I know all my camera settings and am comfortable doing everything myself on manual mode. Any advice appreciated! Thank you!
