It really depends on what you're shooting (how large of an object that you want to fill the frame with, how flexible you are in your distance to subject, etc.).

Most of the Nikon Coolpix models have a pretty decent macro mode, including the Coolpix 5000.

The Swivel Bodied models like the Coolpix 950, 990, 995, 4500 had the best reputation for Macros (since they could fill the frame with an object around 2/3" across and also made it easier to frame due to the nice swivel body). Because the Macro "Sweet Spot" is at around half zoom, you had virtually no distortion.

Of course, Aperture Priority mode helps with Depth of Field.

The CP 5000 also has pretty decent macro performance (almost as good as the Swivel Bodied models, since it can fill the frame with an object around an inch across at it's macro sweet spot).

Steve took most of the closeups of camera bodies you see in the camera reviews here using Nikon Coolpix models (950, 990, 995, 4500).

He's using a Nikon CP 5700 and 8700 to take the product photos with in the reviews now.

Many competing models have the ability to get close. But, many have to be used at one extreme or the other of their zoom range (increasing distortion), and lighting can become a problem if you need to get too close to the object your trying to capture. Of course, you'd want Aperture Priority to help out with Depth of Field, too.
