There's been previous threads on this but they're getting a bit old now...... What's the best camera in the current market for close up work, - say, taking a pic of your finger nail, the blunt end of a bic biro, and even down to a good size image of the head of a pin. But also able to give a good account of itself in the usual family domestic stuff, with a fussy user who's happy playing around with exposure/depth of field etc. Though this'll be my first (and hopefully only) digi camera. Budget is Olympus 5050 territory, ie £500, though if I can get what I want for less that's a bonus. And, no, I'm not into taking pics of pins. My fetish is the inside of clocks and watches - just thought a more general usage spec would be more helpful for those not as sad as I am! If there's extra bits I need, like close up rings (do you use them with digi cams?) and additional memory for high resolution work, then I'd appreciate advice on this as well. Is there anyone out there who does similar stuff to my requirements and can give a steer? Thanks, Andrew.
