I would like an all in one camera, if possible, to do inventory and legal documentation. The only dig camera I've ever had was a Canon PowerShot A60 that I used w/ Windows 2K and XP and to a limited extent w/ my macbook pro. I used it mostly for photographing objects for inventory - so I had a record of what I owned because I got moved around so much and I still have stuff in storage. I often had to refer to inventory pictures to remember if I had one of those some place.


I found the macro feature on the Canon was not adequate to get clear pictures of small objects like jewelry. So I would like a camera that can take clear pictures of jewelry and small screws and such.


I also need to document damage done, so I need a camera that can take video in darkish places like storage sheds and some video of me explaining circumstances or pointing out the cause of damage in the storage sheds. I won't be taking pictures of birds or people playing sports or family events.


I am camera illiterate so it needs to be mostly automatic.


Can one get an all in one that does good macro pics and adequate videos in varying light or do I need to get two cameras?

Camera technology has come a very long way since your last digital camera purchase.


The camera that's on my smartphone (Galaxy S7, and an earlier LG Tribute) can do what you're asking for.  I have an older Sony Cybershot DSC-HX10V that can handle this with ease, too.
