Tip & How-To about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
If you want to shoot Macro shots, get a digital SLR. Nothing compares. When I first started in photography, I thought one camera could do it all. After many frustrating years I found out photography was much like golf. You don't want to use a putter to tee off, nor a wood 6 feet from the cup. Design is the key word here. Perhaps you should save your money and instead of spending it on fixes, repairs and returns, keep it for family outings, etc., and get any of the great DSLR Nikons out there for shots where you want to catch the individual hairs on a bumble bee's back.
Salespeople are not the ones to consult when you are looking for a camera that can do "other things." They will usually will tell you "it does everything including washing your dishes!" When they look at you they see a dollar sign. Research instead first. There are some web sites out there that will specify what kind of camera was used to create a shot, or photographers willing to give their secrets away on how a shot was done. You'll find Coolpix models are not the usual choice for that custom shot you really want.
