Need advice on buying camera that takes good close-ups
Hi.

I know very little about cameras and have bought a couple fairly decent digital ones in the past few years but have been dissapointed with the quality of the close-up shots. I would really like something that I can either add a lens to or will shoot close up on it's own, but have no idea where to start since there are so many cameras to choose from. My budget is $400 or less, and any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated!.

Which cameras ? .

Post examples so we can determine if it's the camera or user error.

What kind of close ups ? (Jewelry for ebay or insects in the garden or defects in fabric or ...)..

I currently have a Canon PS A540, and I would like to be able to take pictures of jewelry and outside shotslike flowers, etc...close up..

Whenever I try to take those types of pics with my current camera, they always wind up looking somewhat blurry and it doesn't seem like the camera can handle the amount of closeness I would like..

Is it me, or the camera?..

The Canon A720IS will focus up to 1cm. Also, it has manual controls and image stabilization, which allows it to take decent low-light photos without a flash at 400 and 800 ISO..

The Canon A570IS is similar, but will not focus as close as the A720IS...

You. Sorry. Post a pic so we can know if the blur is lack of macro mode or movement blur.....
