I was looking at a Nikon d3100 but i wasnt sure if it did a good job which is why i'm asking.

    forget getting an SLR, those use 35mm film and are not capable of shooting video, period. the dSLR would be an option.

    What made that a good picture was careful selection of the background and the elimination of shadows by using a light diffuser. neither of these are a function of the camera or photoshop. it is mostly smart planning on the part of the photographer, someone who knows the craft.

    if you want to get photos like this, then you need to study. most community colleges offer photography production courses. enroll or at least pick up the textbook at the bookstore and read it.

    Nice photo that any Canon or Nikon dslr will do. Except the thing you're not considering is there's lots of editing done to that shot - you can see it all through the shot. The video is very nice as well but if you want a camera that'll do that it's at least $2,500 or more because that's probably a professional level video camera, in a studio. There's not a consumer level camera that will shoot that broadcast quality... and certainly not for $800. There's plenty of good video cameras out there, of course, but they're not studio quality. There's also plenty of good editing programs available, some over $500 so if you've got the cash...
