Best budget canon DSLR

So iíve been thinking about getting back into photography and filming. Back in the day I used to have a Canon T2i and loved it but sold it as i wasnt using it much and wanted the money for other things.

Well like i said iím thinking about getting back into it. I was thinking of getting a T7i and curious what your opinions on this camera are. Donít want the very entry level T7 or anything cheap but also not looking to break the bank on a hobby.

Open to other options as i dont really have any lenses anymore, however when i researched for my old camera the Canon was known for having the best video quality/capabilities.
Dont really care about shooting in 4K however if itís available iíd be willing to look into it.
Will likely be paired with a couple gopros

I have an old Nikon D40X, thing simply does too well to upgrade.

I know some folks are either Canon or Nikon, and there are small nuances (back when I bought mine Nikon was slightly better for inside light vs Canon) both fantastic cameras.

Welcome back to the hobby

It would be a great time to buy a used 5DIII, if you want to to with Canon.

I still use a 15yr old Canon Rebel Ti dslr for my macro/portrait photography and it works great. The cameras today are so evenly spec'd, that it just depends on which you like holding better. I've been shooting with Canon for 16yrs, so that's why I recommend it.

Seriously consider a Sony RX-10 Mach IV. The lens range is awesome and the picture quality is stunning. No need to buy a bevy of lenses. (Disclaimer: I have four Canon DLSR bodies and over a dozen lenses.) I love the Sony RX-10. Check out some images from it.

While those pictures are pretty stunning the camera is a bit more than iíd like to spend. Iím trying to stay under $1000 and if i went with a t7i iím pretty familiar with the controls and i can get one refurbíd from canon for about $650 which would leave me money left over for a nice lens or 2
