I do not shoot any video with my dslr it is too old but I shoot a fair amount if youth basketball in ambient light.

If I were you I would consider a Rebel t4i or a 60D and then put any remaining money into lenses and a good mic to use with the camera.

Good Luck,
Yeah I don't know much about DSLR's and all that but I have a friend thats really good at photography that had a 5D and a 1D now suggested the 5D but really doesnt know much about video recording with his DSLR. I played with the 5DM2 but really couldnt understand the whole focus thing for it. I did see some nice quality videos online that said they were shot with a 5DM2 but like I said I don't really know much about this kind of stuff.

well if i can get everything like the body, lens, mic, and stabilizing handle around 2k id be happy but i very much doubt that
