Default Camera with good macro modus?

Which are the cameras that have a good macro?
I need one with astonishing image quality that has upgrade abilities and a very good macro range, the closest you can get. Price for like $600-$700. I was thinking about the Nikon 4500. Is there any better camera at that price? I've heard the speed and the flash wouldn't be that good on the Nikon but I need a good macro modus anyways.

Nikon is about the best you can find for macro w/o going into dslrs. I'd go with the 4500.

I'll order my 4500 within the week.

After the rebate, Walmart has it for $399

The Fuji S602 has a great macro mode.
