    I am looking for a good point and shoot camera in the $150-$250 range. I want to use it to take photographs of my praying mantids which can be very, very small (about the size of a hearing aid battery) or up to 6".

    I want a camera that can shoot them substantially better than my iPhone 5 up close. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Here's a list from B&H Photo. Pick one, but don't expect great macro from any of them. Those of us who shoot macro use specialized lenses like my Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro.

    And no sarcasm is meant here.
