Suggestions for a good camera for short films and documentaries? I run an after school filmmaking club which shows our films at a local theater as the school's dramatic production each year. We currently use a Canon SL1 which does alright, but I keep wondering if we could do better for something around $1000 that could give us a better cinematic look- meaning would look better on a theater screen. I read an article about what cameras the filmmakers from Sundance use and that said they use quite a variety of DSLRs, professional camcorders, even iPhones. Any thoughts?
