:think: Dunno if you want a videocam or a dslr. Dun think any dslr got video recorder.
So if u gonna get a dslr, the best one to fit your preferences is Pentax K100D. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentaxk100d/
You will need to bargain hard n smart to get the price below S$1000. I think Alan Photo at simlim may offer you this price. The usual retail price is <= S$1200.
