Really because I haven't been impressed with the low light performance by the t3i, I've owned one for about a year now, and still only getting clean footage up to 800 iso

The rebel t3i has way less noise and better low light performance than a Nikon D3200 I know because I own them both! And Nikon's images are worthless if captured in low light! On a bright sunny day it takes great pics though!
