I wanted to know which is better for macro. Coolpix 4500 or Kodax Dx6490.

I guess coolpix should be better because u can shoot from .75 inch and dx6490 the min dist is 12 cm.
But the zoom of dx6490 is 10X and 4500 is 4X.
Any suggestions.

here are the specs
Coolpix 4500:
Lens: 4x Zoom-Nikkor; f = 7.8-32mm (equivalent to 38-155mm) F2.6-5.1 with macro; 10 elements in 8 groups; all glass, Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) applied; glass-molded aspherical lens elements included
Focus: 11.8 in. to infinity
0.75 in. to infinity in Macro mode

Lens: Schneider Kreuznach Variogon
10X optical zoom, 6.3-63.2mm (35mm equivalent: 38-380mm) 3.0X Advanced Digital Zoom
focus distance: wide std. - 0.6m (2 ft.) to infinity; tele std. -- 2m (6.6 ft.) to infinity; wide/tele infinity: 20m (65.6 ft.) to infinity

I am interested in taking close up of teeth.

Any suggestions which one will work out better

Not even close. The 4500 is the best macro performer in it's class. I have a friend who uses it for intra-oral photography and it is amazing
