I am a point and shoot picture taker.
I have some hairbows I am making with vivid colors and don't know what kind of digi camera to buy.
I need a camera that can take close-up shots and still keep the vivid colors.
I have been looking online but not sure of how many MP or Optical stuff I need.
Some of my hairbows have gemstones and my current camera is not good (HP PhotoSmart E427). It has no Optical Zoom but Digital.
I am open to spending up to $500. Can anyone help?
Basically, I need a camera that can take close-up shots with color clarity.
I think I need:
10+ Optical Zoom

10+ Optical Zoom
I have a fuji finepix s9600, and can do everything you need + the macro lens if necessary. In fact this cam has 2 macro modes, 1cm and 10cm both work extremely well and certainly no colour loss.
Hope that helps

Thank you. I will look up your camera. I was hoping to find a camera with the macro mode already included, but if it doesn't take me over my limit I can work with it.
Thank you very much.

A few days before a big trip, spend a couple of hours, read your digital camera's manual, and get outside (weather permitting, of course!) and practice every feature you can think of. Trust me, most people use a very small subset of their digital camera's capabilities. Your camera may have macro mode, letting you take beautiful pictures of flowers if you get your subject in the right focal range. It may have a landscape mode that brings clarity to a panorama of outdoor sights, but you have to know how to enable this feature. Perhaps your digital camera has a special portrait mode to enhance the subject and blur the background. If so, grab a couple of friends and take a few practice shots in your neighborhood.
Remember - you can always delete practice photos before you go out on a trip. But, while you are away from your friendly confines and a photo opportunity arises, it's hard to fully take advantage of digital camera features that you have not previously practiced!
