    I have a Sony 707. Takes great macro shots, since that's what I usually shoot it drew me to this camera.

    Hi Brisco

    Have a look at this site for camera reviews, I found it extremely helpful when I was buying mine.

    Steve's Camera Reviews

    I recently bought a Nikon Coolpix5700 via the internet for about US$700 from some place in New York. I am very happy with it, the macro capabilities are excellent, however it is a bit on the expensive side.

    Personally I have an aversion to Canon products but I must admit that Tim, the bee guy, has posted some great pics that he takes with his G3 and that and the Fujifinepix S7000 have similar specs to the Coolpix5700 and so they were the other two that I looked at when considering getting one. If you want big, high res pics (at max resolution the pics from my Coolpix are TIF format and 14MB each!) but don't want to pay for a full on SLR the one of the one's that I mention above would be ideal.

    Cheers, Troy.

    From my research for a future camera, I want a Nikon Coolpix 5000/5700. I love my Olympus...its been a good camera but I need something a little better. The Nikon has great macro ability as well as other good features. Its gotten good reviews.

    Olympus C-750 + macro lens

    I've got C-730 and the macro lens. Allows me to go REAL close to the plants...image is sharp with your drosera dew drops just 2mm away... 2mm because you wouldn't want them to stick to the lens!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I love my Sony F-717. I can attach close-up filters to take close-ups of bugs/plants from far away. That way I'm not so close that I block out all the great natural sunlight. I've also used the Nikon5700, although very nice (better picture quality than the sony), its not as easy to use as the Sony. I love Canon, their picture quality is just fantastic, barely any digital noise even at ISO 400. I'm thinking of getting the Canon Digital Rebel, but just thinking. Still waiting for prices to drop on that one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    PAK,

    I am there with you on the coolpix 5000 or greater... unfortunately the budget is not there for such a monster... I mean.. heck... if the budget was there, I would be fiddling with a Nikon D series (interchangeable SLR lenses) as we speak... but alas...

    for the budget minded, I think the Coolpix 3100 is a great camera, the 4300 is a newer package, but I don't think it is enough bang for the buck to run up the price difference.

    Oh, and may I add, I have never been sorry buying NEW IN BOX electronics off E-bay, and I have traditionally found incredible deals there.
