Klarisse, what’s your budget like? It’s easier to make recommendations if we know how much you can spend. Also, are you more serious about stills or video?
If you have a very small budget and are more focussed on stills, get a point-and-shoot with full manual controls and video capabilities.
Small budget and more focused on video, get a handycam style camcorder that shoots progressive frame video and has the capability to take stills during recording.
and if you have a big budget get a Canon EOS 5D MKII or a nikon D5000. they will handle both quite nicely.
