Nikon for Filmmaking

I have heard that most use Cannon for making movies: However, do some people use Nikon? Since I already have a Nikon D7000 would it be worth the money to invest in a Cannon?
Thanks!

Nikons are great for video, and in some cases BETTER than Canon APS-C cameras for video. Here's the Vimeo Nikon D7000 group with 3,284 videos shot with the Nikon D7000 camera.

Generally, it is better to find out what you can achieve with the tool you have, than chasing "that tool to do everything perfect for me". The second direction is costy, exhausting and never ending :)

I am assuming you mean Canon cameras not Cannon cameras.
Bottom line is that your audience will not be able to tell the difference between Canon or Nikon cameras when viewing your movies with the assumption that all other factors are equal. Your present camera is a good camera and used well is great!

I for one, love the look, and tone coming from the Nikons. I actually own the bottom-line D3300, and love the colour tone. I have seen streamed footage (not graded, I know) from the C100 MkII, and I feel that I like the colour tone better on my Nikon. But, that's just me.
