Looking for camera for home green screen studio

by Pickles   Last Updated May 20, 2017 12:18 PM

I'm shooting videos with my kids for fun and I'm looking to upgrade my setup. This is mostly for green screen use in my basement. I'm looking to spend less than $500 if possible and I'm happy to buy used or refurbished. Here's what I think my needs are:

  1. hooking up an external mic
  2. being able to see what's being recorded on an external TV
  3. able to mount on a tripod
  4. I'm usually shooting next to a power outlet so I'd like to be able to plug it in and record if the battery dies.

I don't think I'll be doing any still photography with this camera. Do I buy a camcorder? Do I get an DLSR? What should I do? Thanks.
