Default Recommendation Request: Good PnS Digital

Greetings All:

I am looking for recommendation for a good Point-n-Shoot digital camera
to give repair engineers so that they can take good close-up photos of
defects to include in reports and/or email back to the main office for

How close up? Really small? Like less than the diameter of a dime? Or
much larger?

Basically, the characteristics I think are important a adjustable
flash intensity and adjustable apeture. Maybe also a pre-set macro/
close-up mode......and of course inexpensive (under $120....??). Any
other features to suggest?

I doubt if you'll find a suitable camera for under $120. Inexpensive
cameras these days are all auto with few manual overrides or adjustments
other than ISO, white balance, etc.

Trips to the local Best Buy and Target have proved fruitless. It seems
adjustable apeture and flash intensity are no loner common features on

They carry cameras for the general snapshot oriented consumer. You,
however, have special requirements that don't fit that market.

Recommendations and/or advice highly appreciated.

I suggest you go to http://www.bestinclass.com/digital-cameras set a
price of $200 to start with and "overall" for use, and examine the
results. If you find nothing suitable, raise the max. price to $250,

Once you have a few candidates, check other photo review sites like


for more detailed reviews and tests.
