Camera for close ups

I’d like to thank Mac for getting me going in the right direction on a camera. I looked at the specs on his, the Olympus 1010, very impressive. Now Olympus has come out with the next generation of it, the 7010 which is 12 mega pixel and has three macro ranges for close ups, with the “super macro” focusing down to a stunning one centimeter…that’s 39/100ths of an inch! Lots of other great features too, including excellent zoom capability.

So I began to shop them on the net and found that J&R Camera in New York ( has them on sale for $159 US. A mind-blowing price for those features. I have ordered one and look forward to enlarging my world!

Thanks again, Mac.
