Hey all!

We all know that a good picture can make or break an item in your Etsy shop.  I know I have been wooed to purchase by beautiful staging and photography.

I don't identify as a photographer, but I like to take snapshots now and then (and, of course, take pictures for my Etsy store, when I have it stocked...), and don't feel like my current camera is really cutting it.  It's a 4 MP Minolta Dimage that I bought in 2004 (and it wasn't a cutting edge model back then, either...so it's a bit behind technology-wise.  Though, I wouldn't mind it being 4 MP if I was happy with the photo quality).

Along these lines, I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a point and shoot camera under $300 that has good picture quality and good close-up shot capabilities?  Also, please note that I don't think investing in an SLR would really be worth it for me for the amount of photography I do.

The advice told to me was to buy the highest number of MPs you could afford. That's as much as I know about cameras!

I have the Canon Powershot A540. I like it a lot. It's got a good macro (close up) setting and lots of other options like action shots, indoor, party, beach, etc. It also takes pretty good pictures without a flash, which is useful for getting rid of glare on hard to photograph things.
