The Canon Rebel series are very reliable cameras that last for years. Any of them (for the most part) are a safe bet for brickfilming. However, there’s a lot more that goes into animating with a DSLR than just the camera. You have to have specialized software, which is normally upwards of 75 GBP. You also need a COMPLETELY manual lens, because any auto features on the lens, such as focus, exposure, etc., while good for photography, can have disasterous effects on brickfilming. I would recommend an older Nikon Nikkor lens and use it on your Canon camera via an adapter. When you do this, any auto features on the lens are rendered incapable of use. You also will almost certainly need a tripod. So since that camera nearly maxes out your budget, you might want to invest in a cheaper camera to accommodate for the other equipment needed. Hope this helps.
