Canon eos-m (2 of 6)

The Canon EOS-M continues to drop in price. As of this writing, B&H is offering up the Canon EOS-M body with 18-55mm kit lens for just $299 with free shipping. Considering the lens has a resale value of around $120, you’re basically getting an EOS-M body for right at $180, making it when of the most affordable DSLR for video on the market.

I’ve been testing the EOS-M running the latest version of magic lantern for almost a month now, as a video camera it easily keeps up with any of Canon’s current APS-C offerings. You can find out more about the EOS-M here. If you’re on a very tight budget, you could easily pick up the Canon EOS-M body with 18-55mm kit lens $299, resell the lens on ebay and use the profits to pick up 2 or 3 FD lenses. You can get a pretty good deal on the Canon FD 35-105 f3.5 if you keep an eye out, along with many other FD mount lenses.
