Beginners camera for youtube with mic jack

Hi fellas,

I was hoping to get a recommendation for a camera as the title states.

Full disclosure: I know nothing about cameras, never used or had one.

I'm making automotive restoration videos which tend to be quite lengthy. My current set up is Samsung Galaxy S9+ with RØDELink Filmmaker Kit which works fine and I'm happy with the video quality but I want to move away from filming with my phone.

I'm shooting 1080p which for my purpose and quality works fine, I'm not concerned with 4K as it takes too much space and I'm far for that level yet.

I'm not looking to spend a fortune, around 400€/$440 new/used as I'm just starting out. I've been searching for days now and I realize it's slim pickings for a camera in that budget that has 3.5 mm mic jack.

What I found so far is Panasonic FZ1000 for 350-400€ used or FZ300 that's a bit cheaper.

Can someone advise if this would be a good fit for me?

Edit: just learned about Canon M50, seems like the best fit for me.

Many thanks!

Canon EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M) Panasonic FZ1000 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
