THe camera will be used for indoor macro photography of product defects on electronic assemblies. Which camera's have good macro and indoor flash capability. The photos will mainly be viewed on the computer and occassionally enlarged and printed but no larger than 8 1/2 x 11 inches. How many megapixels do I need.

Thanks for you suggestions.

from what ive seen the Nikonhas the some of the best cameras for shoooting macro photography. A sure bet for a 8.5 x 11" print is a 4 MP camera so i would suggest the Nikon 4200 or 4800 (if you want more zoom)

im not an uber-expert though ive just work at best buy and afer playing with them constantly this is what i have found!!

hope i helped

Nikon does have a reputation for super nice macro. However, once someone came into my store (I work at a camera store) and wanted to take pictures of jewlery, and we actually took macro pictures with most of the cameras we had (starting with the Nikons) and the customers (and myself) were most impressed with the Fuji S7000. It seemed to capture more of the small, subtle details of the little earring the customers brought in.

Steve's reviews do have macro pictures, so you can go and compare yourself. I'll vote for the S7000, though.
