I think it is time to finally upgrade my second generation Canon D60 DSLR (the original one). I also have a older Sanyo Xacti 2000(?) 1080/60p HD camcorder that isn't bad but is probably pretty obsolete as well and the actual resolution is of the video is well below 1080p. I am a parent of two kids into music so I am always shooting a performance or activity on a stage in lower light from a fair distance away. I tend to shoot both stills and video (when not absolutely disallowed). Just to be clear, my primary usage is stills (about 2 to 1 over video) but I still want decent video when I want video.
My quandary is whether I should get a DSLR to do both, like the Canon 70D, or should I plan on getting one of each (say Canon T5i and some $500 camcorder) because of video quality or practical usability (i.e. DSLR is not a very friendly camcorder or you really do want to shoot stills and video simultaneously so separates are better). I'm looking for advice from anyone that has been through this. I know that if I want top level video I need a separate camcorder but I am really not wanting to spend $1K on a DSLR and another $1+K on a camcorder. This question is asked a lot on the internet but all the responses are from either pure still photographers or videographers and therefore always recommend separates of top level.
I have specifically listed Canon because I am familiar with them and therefore the default among equals but I don't have any real investment in glass so I could just as easily switch to Nikon.
