I am upgading from my little Canon Power Shot. Decided on a Canon Rebel either t3i or t2i and would like input.
The only difference I can see is the swivel out LCD screen, is it worth spending the extra money on that opiton???
I do take a lot of video's.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

WoW......Thanks for the great information. Watched the video, is that the lens clicking you hear in video? Very annoying
I do have a Flip Share that works great.
Thanks so much.

Get a DSLR if you want better stills, never for videos unless you plan for tripods and major external microphones. DSLR's offer larger sensors for low noise images and give you an option to add external flashes.
The clicking is the "focus hunting" where Canon is trying to give you a sharp image. Canon DSLR's has low light focus issues compared to Nikon. You may also notice some "chittering".... that's the image stabilization.

Thanks xl, may need to rethink this whole situation. Went to our local camera shop and the guy at Ritz Camera likes Nikon as well. Guess I need to go back and adjust my train of thought.
As I do want a camera that takes great pictures and movies as well.
You have been very helpful.

I'll should also ask, which Powershot model do you have?

I have a Canon Power Shot SD1300 IS ..... it does take great videos, just can't zoom quite as much as I would like to.
Sam's Club has a Canon t2i Bundle, with an 18-55 ef-s lens and a 55-250 ef-s lens, 1080p HD video, with gadget bag, SD card and HDMI .

Just called the camera shop, he's out giving "how to use your DSLR" lessons.
I'll go back and talk to him Monday.
Thanks for all your advise xl, I appreciate it.
