I have between £100-£150.
I used a Canon 550D back in college and liked it, should I pick one of these up on Ebay?
Any advice much appreciated, I can provide more info if requested.

I like this camera because it has a manual depth of field focus and shoots 1080p. Recommendations please.

Your budget is only good for a point and shoot or badly mangled slr body. It's unlikely you'll have a working (and optically viable) body and lens for that price.

If you want a DSLR for videography, you'll need a 70D or above and lenses for what you need (if using autofocus, the STM lenses are good). Even heavily used that will run you five times that at least.
