Pentax Optio SVi. In addition to the S5 models it has both time and aperture priority, as well as some other manual functions.

I now rarely use my analog SLR (Pentax MZ5n -that of course makes better photos) since taking pics became so easy with a digicam.

I use an Olympus C360Z, great for supermacro images and really easy to use.

"supermacro" sounds intriguing. How close can you get with the lens and still make usable pictures?

Canon PowerShot G2. Only 4 megapixels, but still fairly good. Frustrating though that some colors are off and very difficult to correct.

I've been thinking about getting a" Canon powershot S3 is" however,in a couple of months the S5 is coming out.I'm thinking ,if I hang on till then the S3 may drop considerably in price,the super-macro on this camera is supposed to be great.
Your opinions please.

Some great pictures - I have a Fuji FinePix S5600 5.1 megapixel. Am quite pleased with it especially since I have just bought a new manual. The next day my wife found the old one!

S5 is quite expensive, I believe Olympus SP550 is more worth it.

I use a Nikon D80 with a 105mm Macro lens with VR and an SB-600 flash gun. When all together its around 1.6kg's of camera equipment to hold when trying to take photos of little tiny things.

If I find a 100% crop, ill show you. Above shot is not, its a small image of the full sized one. If you wish to see the full sized image, click here.. Drosera Image. Then click on the 'All sizes' button and click on the orginal link. It will then load up the orginal image which is around 4 meg or so. Not the best shot to show, but it will do. :)
