Basically need input from people who've experience
taking pics of silver jewellery with a cheap(ish) digital camera. Budget is about £200-300 ($400-600).

So far, my list of features are; Macro, remote control, white light adjustment(?).
The pics are primarily for the web (low res), but would also be a bonus if I could use for printing professional looking brochures, but this isn't really paramount.
If anyone could add to the list, this would be helpful.
(My camera at the moment is a Kodak Easyshare CX6230 with a tripod. I find having
to constantly navigate through the menu to set the timer a pain, hence the remote feature).

I'm looking to purchase a pair of 5000k, triple bulbed lamps, (any tips?). I've got a
12" light cube ready.

Look foward to any cameras that you'd recommend.

Fuji finepix s7000

6 meg - super macro mode - mechanical cable release - sturdy tripod socket - excellent metering - imo: best available for fine macro work
