You've mentioned Nikon as a choice for cameras. Do you have a specific model in mind that can I can use with a wide range of lenses, 1080p video capability, and preferably under $1000?
k everyone, thanks for the advice so far!
I've decided to save up for a camera just in case, but once I get to film school I'll see about borrowing/renting cameras. For now, I think I'll try out some of the apps that people have mentioned. Once again, thank you!
