Best DSLR for Video

Hey guys,

I'm not a regular member of this forum (or an avid camera person) but I've always wanted to get into videography (mainly) and a little photography. I was hoping to get some suggestions for a good camera that produces sharp videos with good colours.

I have seen some suggestions like the 5d Mark II and although I will spend the money if I have to, I was hoping there was a more budget friendly camera out there (>$1000 if possibly). But if there are any option that are expensive but give good output, please do tell.
