Im after purchasing a decent camera for close up product shots.

It needs to give good macro shots and good detail.

It needs to be able to do night time shots of UV products as well.

its needs to be simple to use.

i dont care if it does 200 billion pixels and produces a picture that i can put on the side of a sky scraper !!!! as the pictures are for my web site.

Any one got any ideas oh and i dont want any thing over £200 neither lol.

Ive got a Lighting tent and some lights on there way !!!

oh what the hell is SLR some camera junkie said i should have one in a shop and he confused the hell out of me with to much bull.

slr can't remember what it stands for, is just a type of camera, the majority of people that use it want professional photos but they can be quite expensive, not sure what you can get for 200 quid when it comes to them lol so if you want a good pic slr's are meant to be the best

If its Macros, and INSANE macros at that then you DO NOT want a DSLR you just need a reasonable digital cam.

Macros on dslr's will melt your brain and your bank ballence.

Mayhem ping me on MSN, I may be able to help you out with a good macro point and shoot cam.
