This camera can do so much, I have not even scratched the surface. This is my first DSLR as I have four other SLR's, I was able to just take it out the box and start taking pictures and video. Camera does so much the the instruction book makes my skull melt, so it will take some time for me to figure it out. Great Canon support.
This is an excellent camera. Has everything you need to shoot great quality videos right from the start. A camera that is very easy to use but affords a wide range of options. You can even shoot in hi-def and the videos are ready to import and use with iMovie for Mac. You don't have to worry about converting video into another format like you do with other cameras. I specifically because I wanted to use it for video work and it hasn't disappointed me. It's built in mic also has very good range and sound quality. I highly recommend this camera.
P.S. It takes great still pics too!
