I understand what he was trying to say, I just took offense to being flamed and called ignorant by a total stranger without provocation.
My original statement is still valid...the T3i does not even try to autofocus once recording has started. I think it's important for potential buyers to understand this point as most camcorders and point & shoots do autofocus. Sure, it may be slow and cumbersome, I'm not arguing that. But it's a feature your non-professional consumer would be surprised to see absent. Really nice bikes don't come with kickstands but that doesn't invalidate their use.
Anyway, I appreciate the civility of your response. I'll take a look at magic lantern, thanks.

I agree with him. You should really look into magic lantern. Many many people have made beautiful videos, commercials, music videos, and even movies with this addition to a Canon HDSLR.

The D5100 and T4i do continuous autofocus in video mode. The T3i does not.

BTW your t3i has a video crop mode + Magic lantern + manual control in live view + exp sim which makes it head and shoulders above this 'auto-focusing' D5100 for video. And the fact that you do not understand how 'auto-focus' works in DSLR's is a sure indicator you have yet to master much of your existing gear. Not to say the D5100 isn't a terrific DSLR at a bargain price, but you are showing ignorance about video capabilities here.

Having said that, checking the shutter count is definitely a good idea. Just to see what the use has been so far.

|MWA||FYI to anyone who purchased a refurbished body from Nikon: check your shutter count using Opanda. My "Factory Demo" D7000 from Cameta showed up with 33,000+ shutter actuation on the body, totally unacceptable and in no way was this a "demo"|
