I need a camera for shooting photos of my jewelry. I have been using a Minolta Dimage A1 and really love the control I have with it, but it is dieing a slow death due to a bad CCD. ( I bought it used before learning about the defect and recall.)

I want a camera thatgives me manual controlof focus and aperature. A good zoom would be great too. My price limit is around $450.

I know some cameras have a macro setting, but I haven't found this to be terribly useful. With the Dimage I am moving the camera back a bit and using the zoom to "get close" and fill the frame. I am more concerned with being able to "stop down" so to achieve decent depth of field.

thanks in advance
