what lens would be good for me?

I have the kit lens (18-55mm) and im looking to upgrade to a wide angle lens.The issue is im having trouble deciding.ive been looking at getting the canon 10-22mm but im getting the idea that not having image stabilization would be a problem due to my filming style.I record at car shows(paid) and the reason I want a wider lens is because when the cars park next to each other and I walk in bewteen the 2 cars I can't get much of the car showing.
here is an example of what I film(yes I recorded that)






any suggestions? No fish eyes.and my spending limit=900$

I bought the Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM for $650 about a year and a half ago. I use it for architectural interiors and video footage on Canon 60D, which is not a full sensor camera. Couldn't,t be happier, holds it own when compared with some of my other Canon pro series lenses. Great lens or the money. BW

[Alex Vallin] "any suggestions?"

Hey Alex,

My suggestion would be to check out the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 (http://www.tokinalens.com/products/tokina/atx116prodx-a.html). Extremely affordable and awesome if you can get your hands on it. I use it with my 7D and I find it to be great value for money.
