Default Seeking Digital Camera Advice

I did a quick search and didn't find a thread about this specific topic, sorry if I overlooked it.

I'm looking for a point and shoot type of digital camera that does a nice job photographing jewelry. I have an Olympus Stylus 1000 right now, and it does an awful job. Also, if you have a camera you like, what setting do you find best for shooting jewelry?

Thanks!

I happened to be browsing at best buy and noticed that the cannon digital elph has a really nice macro mode.

Good luck!

I have a Fuji Finepix S2000HD

Its fantastic I love this thing. It has 2 modes of macro. I can get down within an inch of something and photograph it. It also has some great options for everyda shooting too like shooting with natural light! and it does a really good job of this. I just love it. Its under $300 and is 10megapixels and also shoots movies with sound.

Hi - I have the Canon elph. I have been using it for about a year. The pics are best on the auto mode with the macro setting, on a tripod using the timer. However, I used my nephews Nikon 35mm the other day and I won't be using the canon anymore for my beads. The difference is just too great. I will be saving up for a 35mm. I wish I had spent the extra money to begin with. My nephew said he got his at Ritz for about $500. My canon was about $150. Good luck!
