You might want to check Minolta A1 and (Konica)Minolta A2.

Here's more what kind macros those can take:
Those cameras aren't available in shops but at least A2s seem to be traded quite actively in eBay.
Also A2 has best EVF you'll find from digicams... actually someone said in Dpreview forum that its image is even bigger than that of OVFs in many low end DSLRs.

And completely free Dimage Control works with both of them, it enables using computer to control camera.
(and includes even option for motion detection based triggering)

Those are also excellent cameras for general photography if you don't have camera for that use.
