Default what to replace a Fuji Finepix A340 with?

I've had a Fuji finepix A340 for about 5 or 6 years now, that I use for taking photos for my ebay auctions and for general photo taking. It works ok, but now that it's wearing out, I want something a little better. One problem is that it doesn't take the best close up photos, and the colors don't look good. I have pretty bright lights in my office where I take my product photos, but I have a hard time getting good clear closeups, when I don't use the flash it's hard to get a clear photo because I don't use a tripod (any low price cameras that can auto stabilize?). When I use the flash it has to be taken at just the right angle to get a decent shot that shows the item or there's a lot of backwash or glare. Any ideas for cameras under $200? closer to $100 would be even better.

I would suggest the Kodaks Z950 or Z915 both r < $150. They r gd cameras well reviewed and frequently recommended, especially on this forum.

after looking around a bit, I have a couple of possibles - anyone tried a Canon Powershot A3000 IS or Panasonic Lumix FH20 for close up product shots with no tripod?
