I love my Canon Power Shot D10 12.1 MP Under water camera that takes amazing pics. Set it to macro with no flash and you won't believe what you see when you blow the pics up on your PC

i <3 my camera.

war? lol they both take pictures, I just like how the nikon fits my hand better and the menue system better. Nikon has the edge on high ISO right now too.

It personal preference really, not a cult...

Can you guys give me a good recommendation for a camera? I will use it for mostly for near range photography. I can spend around $200-$500 on it. I'll try to buy one off amazon or ebay.

I just have a Nikon Coolpix digital camera. Would an SLR type of camera take better pictures? I did a lot of research about cameras 5 years ago, but forgot most of what I learned. I just remembered that I was looking for a SLR camera.
