The other threads seem a bit out of date and non-specific to my requirements so I've posted this new thread.
I am looking to replace my compact camera (Samsung ES65) because it's proving inadequate for certain types of macro shot. I only ever use it to take photos of wildflowers. For most of these it's fine, but even in macro mode it struggles with very small flowers, very close shots, and fails to distinguish characteristics in white and especially yellow flowers (creating a sort of fuzzy yellow haze).
I'd like to buy another compact camera (lightweight for travelling) that redresses these problems. Has anyone had good results for macro photography with a particular model of compact camera?
As a side note, I'm only photographing wildflowers at the moment but if I ever move to further away small subjects like birds, and you know of any compact cameras that deal well with those, please let me know and I'll bear them in the mind for the future.
Many thanks indeed.
