    I'm planning on purchasing a camera. I've searched and have not found a good one for ~$400 that can also take decent videos. Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    It depends what you want the camera for.
    If you want to take professional photos, invest into a Nikon or a Canon.
    However, because you want videos, a good brand for a videoing cross-over is Sony.

    I've failed in finding a good camera that can take decent video. I'd like the camera to be suitable for amateur-professional picture taking.

    Any more suggestions? Preferably 720p/1080p video.

    You really can't get many cameras capable of HD video, as well as good quality photos, for a cheap price.
    :/ You might have to increase your budget, or choose one-or-the-other.

    Ya. You're right. I'll purchase a camera and a camcorder.

    Now I'm searching for a good camera. I saw some nice Nikon cameras!

    Nikon SLR's are wonderful.
    I use the Nikon D40X. :]
