Trying to decide which DSLR to buy as my first DSLR. I'd shoot macro, nature, landscape mostly but I'd like video occasionally when I travel.
I'm very interested in the Canon EOS 7D but was told by a friend's who uses Pentax K-(9?) that it's inadvisable to use the 7D to shoot video as he had seen the mirror assembly may pop out from being held down in one position when shooting videos. Furthermore, he claimed it wasn't covered by Canon warranty and is expensive to replace. He's suggesting I consider Pentax K series which he claimed is using a different mirror assembly.
As I'm not very knowledgeable but still am very keen on Canon DSLR for photography (and occasional holiday HD video), I appreciate your suggestions on this, thanks.
