why not get a fairly used canon 5d mark 2.....its cheap and great for videos and picture quality is still very much okay.
I'm looking to get into photography more. I'm used to using an older Nikon fully manual using 35mm film. I don't want a just beginner camera, but more of a mid level and work it into pro. Ive been looking into the sony a6000 thats comes with the lens kit, sony a7s but really dont wanna spend $2000+ just yet. Looking to do portrait and Landscape. Weddings and things. I would really appreciate any help giving of what camera I should purchase within my budget of $500 to $1200. I would like to be able to take good close up video if i can as well. Thx so much!
