    I believe you are looking for prosumer camera? If yes, the Canon S3 IS is a good choice. I believe its Super Macro mode can focus 0cm from the subject..
    Life is like photography, we develop from the negatives.

    What's your budget? I believe you are looking for a compact camera is it? If so, then you need to look at cameras with good macro modes and allow super close focussing...

    If for DSLRs, it's the types of macro lenses that give u the final result. Body any also can.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    Thank you.

    You with D200 is much2 better. Especially when you have no choice but to crop the photo. 6M on D70s compare to 10.5 on D200, sure you have more power .

    lest us not forget that any compact camera like the powershot A series with a reverse 50mm prime lens can also be used for macro. look at tchuanye's gallery...
