    Hi

    I am looking for a recommendation.

    I want to photograph close up plants, fruit and veg. What would be a good camera to buy to do this?

    Depends on your budget. If you just want a good basic camera for around 100 you could try a Fuji Pix. Mine has Macro and Super Macro settings which means you can get excellent pictures just a few centimeters away from your centred object.

    If you do a search on here ( top right of the page )for camera recommendations there have been several threads on this subject with lots of suggestions.

    Hope you find what you want.

    Agree with MG, something with a macro lens. I have an old camera but as it has a macro lens I have kept it by me for all the shots on the website etc and it has done me fine for the last 9 years or so, so its a sound investment. Also check out pic monkey because it is a free photo editing site that is very useful for this sort of stuff, easy to use, easy to navigate and completely free.

    With a budget like that you can get a much better camera you will have masses to choose from. Do look at past threads on the subject there are some there up to your budget.

    I use a Panasonic Lumix with Leica lens and find very good for close ups, plus my iPhone camera is also brilliant.
