Need advice on a good first video camera for a student

putting together a portfolio for a college admission.

I want either a low end professional camera, or a high end beginners camera - the only requirements I know of are that it shoots a minimum 24p, & has manual focus.

This is for my son, all advice is appreciated!

You can get the GH2 for about $900.
