The main thing is if you want to get close you need a macro lens. Many inexpensive cameras come with these now, but not all. Be sure to check the specs of the camera and see if it has the phrase "macro" or "macro zoom" etc. Also you need a tripod. You can get cameras with macro for under $100, and you can get a inexpensive tripod for under $20. Myself I sold HP for six years so I tend to have brand loyalty to them, though they seem in the minority when the "best of" lists come out.

That's a tough question to answer. It would be like asking what's the best not most expensive motor vehicle to buy. At least give us an idea of the most you're willing to spend.
