T2I video

 Sorry to be so basic, but is the T2I still a good choice for video and is the MOV. format a good one to work with?

Basic answer...Yes, and .mov format is subjective.
6D, T2i, Canon 600EX, 430EXII, and some other stuff my wife doesn't know about.

Video? It depends on whether your subject matter is 'staged' or free-form. You see, it won't refocus during a clip. If you're making a professional video in a studio and your aperture and focal length are carefully controlled, it's great. If you're looking for a substitute camcorder for a running kid, it sucks.

Strictly speaking, the mov "format" [sic] is a container format. The video is actually h.264 or something - it's very standard. I have had no problem with the mov container at all, but if you should encounter an issue, the videos can be losslessly converted to the AVI "format" [sic] easily with a script.
