Suggestions for a digital camera needed

by kvanwert / August 13, 2010 3:37 AM PDT

I work at a botanical garden and I am looking to find a digital camera that can take really good closeup photos for plant identification, as well as good video for posting things on our website such as virtual tours. I'd like to try to get one camera that can do the best of both under $1000.

Willing to Learn?

Are you willing to learn some basic or not so basic photography skills, or are you wanting more of a point-and-shoot type of camera? Also, is HD video a requirement, or is standard definition okay?

Idiot proof would be nice!

I have some basic photo skills but a point and shoot would be better. As for the video, I no nothing about video or uploading on a website, so I can't answer that! I may not be the only person using it so an idiot proof camera is always helpful. Thanks!
