taking close up pictures
I am looking into getting a camera for taking close up flower pictures - I own a flower shop, and the current kodak digital cameras is failing me big time. Having said that and before I invest too much money, I would like to know which camera is best for this. Basically I need something is able to focus close up, shows real colour, and lets me crop the pictures without losing details if needed. I am not looking for any SLR type cameras - these are too bulky for me. I am looking for a point and shoot camera, is there such a thing for the type and quality of pictures I want to take? I am willing to pay up to 500.00 cdn. thanks,..

Looking at that list I think you should easily find something to match your needs in the price range you want. 2 things I would recommend to help narrow down the selection process a bit are I highly recommend that it have image stabilization, to eliminate the slight blur you will likely get from pressing the shutter, and the other thing is whether it will do macro without changing some basic settings. Some require that you switch them to macro mode (usually a tulip as the symbol) while others can do it in their regular mode. Either works, but you need to remember to switch back & forth for the different uses...

Thank you to both who replied. I will definitely look into the 'macro' list, and make sure that one of the features has image stabilization...

Close up pictures with a SLR or compact ?

I use Ricoh RX and is quiet at the 1cm. The newest Ricoh R4 has.

StabilisationShould be good for close up.

I like the compact while en route for the snapshot etc...

The Olympus FE115 has image stabilazation but also has a special setting specifically for up close pictures (in fact the icon is a flower). It's a good camera for under $200...

Sorry to contradict but the FE115 does not have stabilization. There are no Olympus cameras FE or SP series with that feature. What you see sometines is marketing speak for increased ISO which is completely not equivalent. - Itai.
