  • Marco AF about 3cm
  • Fast Shutter Speed
  • About 10 Megapixel

  • Able Video and optical zoom while video

This is a link where I found it useful during camera hunting. There are some filters which you can use to narrow down your search.

From your requirements, the first camera that came into mind is the Canon S5IS. Other than meeting your prerequisites (other than pricing), it is also one of the very few cameras that is a "half-cam-half-video cam" with dedicated button.

You can overcome this cost issue by going to the Buy & Sell section. :)
