Need a new camera

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently using a five year old 6MP camera that is terrible at taking pictures. I'm in need of a camera that is good at taking close up pictures. I'll be using it to take pictures for my blog, reviews for components here at OCN, etc...

Since the camera won't be used daily and it's only purpose is the above I'd like to keep the price point low. I think that ~$100 should be plenty for my purposes but I don't know much about today's camera market.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I've always heard Canon have the best P+S cameras; my SX100IS is a Canon, and it's great.

The SD1300IS is great at $130, while the A495 is cheaper at $100. I'd go with the SD1300IS.
