    I totally agree with LO on this. For the average guy who is looking to improve the quality of his footage without selling his truck to pay for it, the T3i is tough to beat. It basically has the same internal video components as the Canon 7D and they added manual audio functions. The Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 is one of the best lenses (at any price) that you can buy for a crop sensor camera. I would say that you might want to consider the 50mm 1.8 as well, It's not the brickhouse that the 1.4 is but for much less money it is hard to beat. With an SLR your biggest issue is going to be getting those long distance shots, your most affordable option would be to just make due the the 55-250mm kit lens because a quality telephoto zoom lens is going to cost you a small fortune.

    The biggest thing that you can do to enhance the quality of your video is to start shooting everything off of a tripod, glide cam, or slider. Some of those shaky youtube hunts can almost make a guy seasick at times! The catch22 is that no one wants to carry heavy camera equipment on a backpack type hunt. Thats why 90% of hunting tv shows are filmed out of outfitter camps or lodges...

    Filming yourself and your own hunt is not the easiest thing to do and do well. This is especially true if you're using a DSLR.

    From my personal experience filming deer hunting documentaries since 2010, solely with DSLR's, I hate to say it but using a DSLR to film a hunt is like using a bow to hunt vs a rifle. It's much more difficult and technical. Hence, I don't recommend it to most folks as many people may prefer to just push play and record.

    That being said, I applaud anyone who uses a DSLR to film their hunts. You just have to become a student of the camera and practice under all lighting and shooting scenarios.

    This was all done with a DSLR and a Sony action cam. The software is Cyberlink Ultra.

    @808 - No, not really. If you're on a Mac, iMovie is a good editing program to learn with.

    I don't use PC's so can offer help there.

    I've heard IMovie is a good place to start. I'm getting a Mac soon. Mahalo for all the great info and help.
