Default Best camera for video and pictures ~ 400

I've done some research and it seems that a DSLR is my best choice if I intended to take pictures too, however shooting video will be my main priority, call it 60:40

Anyway, I've came across the Pentax K-x, Pentax K-r and the Nikon D3100. I can get any of them for around 400 and that's as much as I'm willing to spend, so no recommending Canon's 550D

For videography, and photography, I believe the CMOS sensor is better in terms of quality and it isn't prone to that purple beam/light that CCD sensors exhibit.

Which out of the suggested would you recommend for the mentioned purpose, and please tell me of any other models you think I should consider.

Video with a DSLR is quite different and somewhat tricky. This is a case where the option of two cameras, a DSLR and one for video might be an option.

I've heard that a lot, zooming is meant to be poor and focus with some cameras can be an issue. I may step my game back down and look at the TZ10 or some bridge cameras. Thanks for the reply
