Hi Helka

The camera I use for wonderful close-up work is a Nikon 2020 body with a
55mm autofocus macro lens.  The camera can be used (as I have done) as
an aim and shoot camera with everything being done for you
automatically, or all the automatic features can be turned off and you
can get as technical as you wish.  Nikon no longer makes the 2020 body,
but it is available at used camera shops and fairs.
