    Looking for recommendations for specific models that take excellent
    MACRO pictures.
    Application is ROCKS! Small mineral clusters, rock slabs, polished
    cabs, etc. Looking to find camera that will show subtle color blending
    accurately, i.e., blue is blue, green is green, pink is pink, etc.
    A specific problem is to get the color to show on unpolished rock the
    sample must be wet which causes flashback or flash ring to show in
    pictures.

    There are a LOT of camera models that do a very poor job with macros.

    Which cameras have any of you had success with?

    tia,
    Mary

    Here is an image from my SONY F828:

    I had just bought the camera and was "trying it out" but I didn't keep the
    original image (curses) so the EXIF inforamtion is missing. Sorry.

    The SONY is not necessarily the best but this ant is 2mm long and sits on a
    tablecloth. The brown object to the right and out of focus is a human hair.

    One of my sons uses a Canon (model unknown) for photographing jewellery his
    wife makes (manufacturing jeweller)

    Try this web page for more information on various makes and models:
