Hi Ryan - sadly, shot-ruining aliasing and moire are a real problem for older Canon DSLRs. The early DIGIC processors couldn't handle the real-time downscaling from the 5200x3462 pixels on the still camera sensor to the "mere" 1920x1080 pixels required for HD video.

But you don't have to step all the way up to a $5500 C100 to solve this problem. You can trade up to a DSLR or mirrorless DSLMs with close to zero moire - such as the Panasonic GH2, the Nikon D5200, the Nikon D7100, the Canon 5D Mark III or the Panasonic GH3 (although the GH3 backslides a little in this department).

Here are a couple of examples of the problem in these side-by-sides of the 60D and the GH2:

As Andrew Reid said in the eoshd review of the GH3, "Tell me one good reason why you are still shooting on a Rebel."
