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..

Above is good :thumbsup: if Yilin looking for DSLR.

Alternative cheaper one is Nikon D50 with Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 AFD Micro and SB600...

My setup is Nikon D70s with Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 AFD Micro and SB800...

Regards,
Arto.

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...

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 :thumbsup: .

Arto.

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...

Hope above help ;) .
