I've been taking digitial photos of my automotive body and paint work and would like higher quality photos for my website.

I use a Pentax point-and-shoot 8 megapixel camera.

It's good, but the pictures lack detail, and I have a hard time focusing on particular areas on the viewfinder.

What advantages does an SLR camera offer?

Here's an example of a before/after I took. Both photos lack detail in the repair area.

You need an SLR with a macro lens. You can then zoom in on a scratch and see the texture that was created by cracks in the paint. Maybe even capture rust spouting.

Do some searches online for "macro pictures"

Even if you got the DSLR for extra detail, you'd need a macro lens to show off your work, and closeups of paint are really hard take since the camera will try to focus on the reflection.
