I’m looking to get a digital camera, specifically for macro photography. I’d only like to spend around $500 (or less). A friend has the Canon Digital Rebel XT and it seems nice. It appears the Nikon D70 is a comparible camera. I’m not looking to go crazy with photography, but have been meaning to pick it up as a hobby for awhile. I have a decent sized cacti collection and would enjoy getting some good pictures of them. I’m just looking for a good quality camera that will last a while.
Any suggestions on a camera that would suit my purpose?
