HD video recording turns out to be a hot item for DSLR camera's these days. Canon has introduced the EOS 500D (Rebel T1i in the US), this dSLR has a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and offers 1080p Full HD video recording, however it's only at 20fps so I don't think it will be very usable. The 720p HD recording at 30fps should be more practical, and is more than enough to shoot videos for the web.
Other features include the Digic 4 image processor, 3" LCD display with VGA resolution, face detection mode, ISO3200 and additional high-speed ISO 6400 and 12800 settings.
The Canon EOS 500D body will be available in early May for 869EUR ($799.99). It will also be available in a kit with the Canon's EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens for 969EUR ($899.99) The muscle behind Canon's new EOS Rebel T1i camera is the DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor with 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion and the ability to process full HD video. The Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR offers continuous shooting at 3.4 fps for up to 170 large/fine JPEG images or up to nine RAW images in a single burst when using a class 6 or higher SD or SDHC memory card. Whether capturing wildlife on the run or a child mid-stride on the soccer field, users will appreciate the fast shooting capabilities of the Rebel T1i Digital SLR camera.
With the combination of its 15.1-megapixel APS-C size CMOS image sensor and the powerful new DIGIC 4 image processor, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i camera provides ISO speeds from ISO 100 up to ISO 3200 in whole stop increments, along with two additional high-speed ISO settings
