I currently use my Samsung galaxy S9+ for all my videos. I want to upgrade a better camera that has more than a wide angle lens. My channel is about my saltwater aquariums that have a lot of blue light so white balance is really important. I use a clip on orange filter on my phone.
Any recommendations on a camera that's the next step above my phone camera?

Maybe around $250. Something used would be fine also.
My main thing is a new camera won't necessarily fix this issue 100% if you want more lens options I'd recommend looking into on camera lenses for that budget. Are you using the native app for filming or another one? Otherwise for that price the options are limited, but depends what you want to do :X

I've had a dji osmo mobile 2 for a few weeks and using the dji go app.
I could swing more money if need be. I just don't know which cameras are better at video and where to start looking.

Been reading a lot since I'm not familiar with features on dslr's.
Nikon D3500 is coming up a lot as a great entry level for videos.

If anyone searches or stumbles across this post, I looked for the features that I wanted on a camera. Mirrorless, 4K, mic jack, touch screen and screen fully adjustable.
After reading a lot of reviews on different cameras I decided on the Panasonic Lumix G7. I found one on marketplace with a bag, rode mic, 2 tripods, 176s led light, and various cards and cleaning supplies. I got it for $320.
