Digital Camera

My Pentax Optio M80 has recently stopped working. So I am looking into buying a new camera.
Does any one have any recommendations for a Camera That would mainly be used for:
Taking some video for media tech
and taking pictures
I am going to use it mainly for making movies for school but it would also be nice if the camera could take decent pictures.
i have a price range from $100 to about $250 ,and i might be able to go above that but not by much.
so any cameras you would recommend or to stay away from.
