Pretty much all of the artsy fartsy photos that I take are of my fish, and I have a tendency to drop things so I'll likely use my regular point and shoot camera for everything but fish shots. I'd prefer to get a CHEAP digicam(student/trying to save for a house), but I need something that takes good low-light photos, and has inexpensive macro lenses. The farthest I'd likely be shooting would be 18" away, and the closest would be 1cm. I'd also need a slave flash or 3 that I could put above the tank for more "natural" lighting. I honestly don't know much about equipment or technical terms, which is sad, but the case. I'd be perfectly happy sticking with my fuji finepix S700 if I were able to control focus effectively , and I can't justify buying a macro lens for my film SLR camera considering how few aquarium shots ever turn out properly. Thanks for your input!
