camera I'm looking for a digital camera in the $100-300 range? I'm trying to get back into filming and I want something better than an Iphone.

Look at the PowerShot SX420 from Canon - $280 from B&H

Coolpix B500 from Nikon is just out of your range - $350 from B&H - but it would be my recommendation. An excellent camera.
Use the iPhone, get solid production sound gear.

Your project will only look as good as it sounds, because
"Sound is half of the experience"
If your film looks terrible but has great sound, people might just think it's your aesthetic.
If your film looks great and has bad sound, people will think you're an amateur.

Sound is the first indicator to the industry that you know what you're doing.
