    Question Any Suggestions for a digital Camera?

    Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I am trying to start a small web business selling products that I have. (some electrical components and other misc. things)

    I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion as to what type of digital camera to buy to take clean photographs of the objects to be put on the Internet to be sold.

    I am looking for something in the 135-200 Dollar range, but I assume that the best type of camera for my situation would have to be good at:
    1. Taking pictures up close (some type of macro for digital cameras? )
    2. Be able to handle light balance well (I am horrible at getting the lighting right, if you can suggest some sort of lighting set up that might help, I don't know..)
    3. They are not necessary, but some cool features would be that the camera would be compatible with some sort of wired remote (so the camera doesn't get bumped on the tripod when taking a pic) and possibly if it exists some way to take pics while already connected to a laptop so they can be used by the computer as soon as the pics are taken.

    I don't even know where to start looking, any help would be appreciated.

    (especially if you took your time to read all this crap, hehe )

    Mmm, yes you need good macro... definitly, good lenses ( most have good lenses nowadays ), probably.. a pretty high optical zoom.

    200 dollar..mmm... I let it to the americans here to show you where to get the good stuff, but it's very possible to get good macro and normal pictures in that price range.

    The reason why, well I am in europe and only know the european market a bit, but I have seen that the Canon Powershot A70 very probably is in the price range you have. Then again, those on the local market know probably more!
