Need recommendations for camera, lense, and mic for school club

First, a little background; At my high school, we have a robotics team. I'm on the business team, and I've been tasked with selecting the camera we'll be purchasing for the team. I have some experience with photography (Nikon D50), but not a ton.

The details for what we need for this camera are:

• Mid range focal length (so preferably 35(ish)mm lense)

• Video w/ audio (so it needs a mic attachment)

• Simple enough that first time users don't need to read the whole manual before use

• Around $750 (for camera, mic, and lense)

• Easy to find parts for

• Durable

I have discussed brand with the mentors, and the one they are leaning towards is Nikon, so that is a factor.

If you have any recommendations, they are much appreciated.
