    Film or digital?

    If film, the Nikon F series dominated the autofocus 35mm market for years. They're great cameras with a huge number of lenses available.

    If digital...i don't have a clue for under $400. The only thing you might be able to come by in that range would be a Pentax *ist D

    Are you willing to buy a pocket type (small one) or a more-to-offer type of? I'm under the same process right now. So far, If your looking for a more-to-offer, I've not found a better one that the Canon PowerShot S2 IS, for about ~330 US. If a small one is needed, I would also recommend a Canon, I own an old SD110, far from others in its class. So, what are you looking for? Megapixels, zoom, pocket, more-to-offer?

    Im looking for a digital camera. Im looking for a camera that can take high quality pictures, still and action shots. Also one I can put different lenses on. I dont know much about cameras, but im guessing I cant get one for under 400. What would you think would be one thats not too pricey.

    The original Nikon F series - Nikon F, F2 etc. were manual focus...but that was a very long time ago...and they also dominated the market.
