    Oh and also, price is a BIG deal, the cheaper the better. I won't be able to afford a Digital Rebel anytime soon :sad2:

    the coolpix 4500 is like the same thing, but newer with more mp and uses a li-ion battery instead of AA.

    i've handled them myself and think they're way too bulky.

    Fuji S7000, but I don't think it falls within your range. I loved its macro range.

    I agree with Fuji. My $200 A340 was a lot better for macros than my $650 Minolta A200. :o

    You can find a S5000/5100/5500 pretty cheap.
