Does he need a REBEL...would a G series do okay, the G12; which I have does 720p, the newer G15 does 1080p...just an option.
1 - T2i, if a starter low budget no-frills body is workable.
2 - T3i, better high ISO performance, articulated screen, a good friend has one n luvs it, she did not find any compelling reason to upgrade to the T4i, she shoots stills/video and has near the same level of injury as I do, actually much less arm strength, the touch screen was the only thing she did like but that wasn't worth the extra buckaroos.
3 - T4i, slightly better high ISO, articulated touch LCD, less noisy and slightly faster AF; with the STM lenses, auto face detect and tracking.
He'll need an external mic, the basic Rode's are about 150, it produces the best stereo sound, there are others that are near half the cost with lesser quality. If he want's a cheap solution for 'follow focus' you can use a simple jar/lid opener. I've a few that help me focus with these still fingers...they're a few bucks and easy to put on/remove and are a dual-purpose gadget...got mine on amazon.
For editing you can't beat the Adobe Elements 11 combo, it's under 100 at Amazon; most places, and are great tools for the budding stills/video shooter; Premier is the video piece.
The T2i and T3i use a Digic 4 chip, the T41 a Digic 5...
PS. Sent you a PM
