correction in terms of sexy bits they are NOT showing too well if at all.
I didn't find it porn at all, it shows less nudity than many tv shows. We see tv shows all the time with more nudity and sexual behavior, from that great height it is not explicit enough for porn. Not trying to justify, but I doubt that a single distributer of adult video would consider that porn and I would also include the general public. I am sure the OP is reacting to what it represents more than what it shows, because in terms of the sexy bits, they are showing too well if at all.
I wanted to comment on the post saying you should buy a more expensive camera for its investment value. A camera body is an investment like a new car is an investment, you drive it off the dealers lot and you just lost $10k. Cars and cameras are not investments and not valued for what they are worth, but for what they can do. More expensive cameras like cars can do more with style as you go up in price, but the core things, the things you do 99% of the time are the same. When you buy the Canon Rebel you are getting great camera potential and it is likely if you exploit it fully you will never need to "upgrade" The real upgrade is within you and applies to any camera you use. I did want to recommend at looking at a used Canon 17mm-85mm lens. Amazon has them used for about $200. Great lens for a crop sensor camera, Kenrockwell.com a great resource for articles and camera/lens reviews.
Right now you can get a Canon eos-m from amazon.com, but I bet B and H has them too for under $250. I also have a t2i I paid over $800 and a refurb T2i. All though over and over people have recommended these cameras as "starter" cameras, when used well, they can effectively compete with quality of cameras costing many times as much. With the free magic lantern software (no from canon check out magiclanternshooter) Your audience will not know if the camera was a $230 eos-M or a $3500 Canon 5dmk2. Your film and mine has no chance realistically of being projected in a movie house and even if it were, the audience doesn't care. So you can spend many times the money on an expensive camera, but with little result. The key to any camera is learning how to use it well. The skills you need on the eos-m are the same for the expensive 5dmk3. The majority of refurbished cameras have never been used. They are bought by big box stores and replaced by new models. The older models desintened for replacement are then individually checked, adjusted and sold as refurbs on the mjg website, B and H and amazon.com. New cameras are batched tested so maybe one in a thousand are tested for quality. In my mind not only are refurbs much less expensive but also higher quality due to testing. Phone Canon.com, talk to a sales person, often they go lower than the advertised price for refurb. I could have bought a Canon 5dmk3 for $1500 had I the money at the time. Phoning around a holiday is a good strategy. If you buy one of the recommended Canon Rebel series you are getting a very good camera made great with Magic Lantern and nothing to be ashamed and capable of putting the people with the expensive cameras to shame by what you can do with it.
If you don't like what Canon offers, then don't buy them. I have 3 of them the last being the eos-m for about $230 new. They price what the market will bear. I think for us using dslr for video, we are a small market for them and not worth bothering with. They are likely very smart to ignore us and focus on the group that makes them money (which is not us)
Well, I have to differ with the idea of using a sounddevices mixer as only option, it is certainly I agree a good option. I am most definitely an audio guy and a video guy. Any notoriety I have is as an audio guy altho I am involved making movies every day. I think technique in audio trumps equipment every day. Noise floor doesn't mean that much when mixed in with music, dialog, sound efx. Most people also don't have pristine audio playblack to watch movies with. So most likely anything that you get that can record good sound will be fine. It is unlikely if you buy or rent a Sounddevices recorder that it will sound ANY better than buying a Tascam or Zoom recorder. I think in general any digital recorder will work for you given that you have an external microphone and many have built in microphones that work well for dialog. What concerns me more and I think way more important is ergonomics. I just gave away an m-audio digital recorder that is old, works basically just as good now, but at my age I cannot see the smaller lcd. I use a Tascam dr100mk2 and Tascam 680 in the field, but any of the commonly used digital recorders will do. What makes a difference is getting that microphone either built in or external close to the audio source, the farther away, the more room sound you get. This is true no matter how expensive the recorder is. The ergonomics are how does it fit your hand? or how easy is it to see your meters? if recording live music, does it have a limiter? how easy is it to change settings? Being a Man that was born in the early 50s with very large hands, my choices were based on these facts. I am more comfortable with buttons than menus. however if you have smaller hands and are much younger, you may find menus your forte. I would not be concerned with a more expensive recorder as likely there will be more benefit to you. When your experience dictates that you are not satisfied with what you are using and salivate after more expensive gear for specific reasons, then that is time to buy the expensive stuff. However in my work, no one knows how expensive the recorder is, it is impossible to tell.
