sony cybershot ;D the 7.2 mega pixel one picks up blu-ray quite nicely where my 8.1 picks it up as blue but takes better beam shots and also has a very nice macro setting . my 10MP just hated everything I did to I returned it :-/

I've been looking at buying a Nikon D40... They show up on ebay for around $400.
They're a few years old, but they're a solid DSLR that takes amazing pictures.

I've got a D40, and it's really quite nice, and you won't find any more useful features in its successors (D40x, D60) besides more megapixels, which don't give you much, and actually reduce the maximum speed of the camera. *$400 is a steal and you can use virtually any Nikon lens ever made. *The only problem is that the camera doesn't have a motor for lenses which don't have auto-focus motors inside them, which is somewhat limiting. *Remember, it isn't the equipment, so much as the photographer, that makes the shot decent.

Virtually any camera can take decent beam-shots if you are able to manually set your exposure. *The longer the exposure, the more light it'll capture. *Also remember to set the ISO settings to their lowest setting (and turn Auto-ISO off) prior to longer exposures, to reduce noise. *This also assumes you have your camera on a tripod. *As always, look at the result of your shot and try again if it doesn't look good.

For a camera, you can get a DSLR, but they don't do great macro shots right out of the box. You'll need some lenses and stuff (which I want to test with some from DX). I've found most of Canon's Powershot models do a decent job right out of the box. Some even do "SuperMacro" which is REALLY close-up.

casio exilim ex-z75. *dont buy it. *you cant manually set the exposure, macro is lacking, only works well as a point and shoot camera. i only bought it because i wanted a small camera for my vacation a couple years back...it served its purpose well then, but not for what i take pictures of now. *

I use either a Nikon &quot;Coolpix&quot; or some Canon Powershot. Both are pretty good for the price. I couldn't figure out how to do long exposures on the Powershot though. I would recommend something besides these though, if you're looking for something that takes good quality pictures.

Fujifilm S9600 + canon 299T flash. Great digital camera, good 28-300 optics, nice resolution at low light / high iso. Maybe it's 9 MP would be FAR better if they were 6, on the same large sensor

If you can spend something, go for a dslr like the D40.

LRMNmeyer:

On the Powershot it usually involves going into the M (i.e. Manual) or Tv (i.e. shutter-speed priority) modes and then using the navigation-pad to adjust the exposure time. It depends on the model though. Some are made for point-and-shoot, not for more adjustment.

A good place to see in-depth reviews of cameras is DPReview.
