Default Ebay Camera with good Macro maybe auto HDR?

So my Sony H50 recently broke on me. I need:

-Macro above everything else.
-Manual Settings
-Histogram
-Remote control if possible, otherwise time delay

I do 200 ebay items a week, collectibles mainly, with most items ranging in size from the size of an envelope to a pin the size of a dime. Sometimes there are silver stamps the size of the date on a coin that needs to be photographed in good detail.

The only real problem with my previous camera comes in when I have an item that has major dark and light spots with detail. Either one or the other comes through on the picture and I was thinking that HDR can help with this.

My H50 came with a remote, but Sony's newer cameras don't. A shame. It really helped prevent any shake, but I'll have use the 2 second delay or whatever if I have to.

I have looked into the Nikon P100 as a possible replacement but have no practical experience with it. The Sony Nex seems nice, but it the macro of the stock lens probably won't cut it. The Sony Hv5x has an HDR mode, but from the sounds of it, it's not compatible with macro mode, but I'm not sure. The H1X looks like the sucessor to my old camera.

As untrained point-and-shooter, I'd appreciate any advice.
