Which is the best camera for YouTube videos/general recording?

I do YouTube tech videos which are generally usually based inside, and I decided that I would upgrade to a new camera. What is the best camera that I can find used or refurbished (somewhere) for $200-$275? Here's a list that I made of cameras that I would be able to get for that much used. These are all either Compact SLRs or Full size DSLRs, because I feel as if Dslr's sort of have more "features" and "Customization" with ebing able to shoot in raw, and interchangeable lenses and what not, so keep in mind that I'd prefer an SLR.

- Nikon D3100

-Sony NEX F3

-Sony NEX 3N

-Panasonic Lumix GF3

-Panasonic Lumix GF5

Or any better camera out there for this price range.

My requirements is that I need them to be able to record in 1080p video, be able to shoot in raw, id also PREFER it to be an SLR and I'd PREFER it to have manual focus.

So what camera would you recommend out of these? or If there is any better choice please tell me!
