Well, I am on my way to shopping for a new Canon EOS and I think the Canon EOS 7D might be the perfect DSLR camera to get.
I did some research, check out some of these test HD videos shot using the new Canon EOS 7D:
Dublin’s People using native 24p on the 7D:
Shave It Back using 7D:
Another Night in Beijing using Canon 7D:
Can you see that all these videos have one thing in common? That even with no HD-enabled, the videos look super-crisp and movie-like clear.
I really can’t afford to get one right now but this is probably THE camera to get.

God I WANT ONE!
18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 image processors
The EOS 7D features a Canon-designed 18.0-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a high level of resolution it’s easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth. Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors ensure that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS 7D’s ability to capture and process data of images shot at 18.0 Megapixels at 8 fps, as well as Face Detection Live Mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral optimization are all possible thanks to the Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors.
ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800) for shooting from bright to dim light
With a broad range of ISO settings, the EOS 7D enables shooting from dawn through dusk and ensures capture of the finest detail. With enhanced, low-noise high-sensitivity optimization, shooting in situations previously possible only with flash becomes as simple as point and shoot.
8.0fps continuous shooting up to 126 Large/JPEGs with UDMA CF card and 15 RAW
Capable of shooting up to 126 Large/JPEGs with a UDMA CF card and 15 RAW at 8 fps, the EOS 7D is a perfect camera for action. Canon’s remarkable shutter, combined with speedy, sophisticated electronics, ensures instant response and performance. A rapidly-occurring scene can be captured moment by moment, second by second, so that even the briefest of opportunities are captured in perfect clarity.
P.S. I’ve checked out almost every other DSLR camera Canon sells but this one is probably the best deal and value. The 50D series are great too but 7D is newer.
