    I've had a Canon power shot in the past and it was my favorite little camera!

    I think it's hard for anyone to say which is the best on the market now though. Even if they did all the research last year, it can be a different market already. Plus, what's important to one person might be of little importance to another.

    I would look at reviews online and pick your top 3 choices. Then I'd do an online search compairing each model to each other. There are many people online who buy all the latest models and do a comparison of them all. Some reviews show picture examples as well as charts. It may take a lot of time to do your research but in the end you'll be confident in what you purchase. Stats and examples are always better than opinions

    Good luck!

    Beyond the kidding around, as you can see from some of the links, if you want to do macro - you should seriously consider a DSLR. If you just want quick pics, stick with an iPhone camera.

    The creative options that open up with a DSLR are incredible - like the previously-mentioned focus-stacking as well as time-lapse (& others).

    Yes, you can get decent pics with a point-&-shoot (all of the pics in JB's Epiphytic Utric Growing Guide were done with one) but as you progress, you'll be more & more limited (& frustrated) - no manual focus, no depth-of-field settings, no shutter speed control, & on & on. Also - the smaller the subject, the more frustrated you'll be (ime).

    Gotta love those macro shots! I especially like the jumper with the huge eyes & faux-hawk.

    A very cheesy and early attempt of mine at focus stacking.... lots of "ghosting"
    but I still love the pic for some reason.
