Hello guys! I have quite a dilemma.. I don't know whether I should sell my 550D off for a HD Camcorder and a Good PnS Camera (Such as S95) or i should just keep the 550D.

I like the quality of the pictures produced by the 550D and how it can be easily tuned (settings), and the speed of the Camera is very delightful itself.

But, i seem to record Videos for a very long time. like 1 hour minimum. I have recorded many vids with my FS200 and i really wish i had captured those moments in HD.

Now that i have learnt of the 550D not being able to record long videos, i wanted to sell it away. But i really love this cam and i Don't know whether to get a HD camcorder + PnS Camera or just stick with my 550D.

i didn't know that there is a time limit that u can shoot video for 550D. I thought this restriction is imposed by the memory card not the cam? Correct me if I am wrong... cos I dun really shoot video with my cam.

Anyway i seen most videographers using cam to shoot videos usually uses at least a 32G memory card to shoot their videos.

I guess it depends on in the long run whether you need a DSLR or a camcorder + a P&S camera. The camcorder would solve your videoing issue as i understand you are trying to record a concert, but the P&S will never attain the quality of a DSLR camera.

What if you sell off the 550D and found that after the concert you don't really need a camcorder anymore and a DSLR would have serve you better then...:dunno:

if its possible to record at least 1 hour on 720p, then i might not sell this baby away.

I am afraid that the class 10 Cards wont work properly and give alot of problems. I read about it T_T
