I hear good things about Mpeg Streamclip from this forum and elsewhere, but nothing about working with footage from this camera in iMovie 6 HD, or if it is even possible to preserve certain frame rates. Anyone tried it?

If I go with the 550D/T2i, should I buy here: http://www.camerakin...&l=PriceGrabber ? Seems too good to be true.

Also, is there a difference between the European model and the American one (550D/T2i)?

First, I have an extensive background in both photography and video. I was looking for a smaller camera to carry around that could also shoot video. When I heard about this one I thought Canon T2i Camera would be perfect and it is good, very good BUT its does have its issues... I will try to keep this short and to the point.
It has Some Good Point
-Superb image quality in both photos and video. You can expect image quality comparable to a Canon Pro DSLR.
-The 18-55 kit lens turned out to be remarkably good.
-Works very well with this camera, unlike the Audio Technica 24CM. Its not cheap but good mics never are.
-Light weight compared to the higher end Canon bodies.
-Amazing low light video capability. With a fast lens f2.8 or lower even a Pro video camera can't touch it.
-So if shooting in dark places is a big requirement then these cameras are the way to go.
