I was *this* close to getting a Cannon Rebel a while back, but didn't pull the trigger. I don't need professional grade, just something for watch shots for forums, etc.

Is there a consensus on the 'go-to' for this? Thanks.

Hi, what is range of your budget? or you are something like more into Canon brand only or maybe you do not care as long as it produces great image

If you are posting things on the internet then I would recommend a M4/3 camera from Olympus or Panasonic. The lenses are cheap and the cameras are easy to use.

Nikon, all post lenses fit. DSLR entry level D3400 under $500. It will be a LONG time b4 you outgrow it...IMHO

You probably need to be more specific than 'watch shots for forums' to receive a decent answer/suggestion. A smartphone is good enough for a forums shot.

Try doing some research on dpreview. There are some good suggestions for cameras broken down to budget, application, etc.

*LOL* he wants a simple camera. The 5D III isn't new enough to cutting edge, old enough to be cheap.

I'd love for you to check the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera.
Funnily enough I have this and an EOS100D (rebel) one for doing piper work one to throw in a bag for when I’m hiking. Problem with the little one is I still use the decent lenses on it so there’s bigger all weight savings, the space saving is good though

I've just moved from Canon to Sony (full frame) and regret I didn't do it earlier. However, that said, your lens is probably more important than your camera when it comes to macro photography.

If you want watch shots for forums your money needs to go on a macro lens.

That canon will do the job the job but lens will be more expensive
What he said ^^^

Any decent DSLR, even entry level one, will take great pics... What makes a difference is a good macro lens and lighting;)

As for myself, I decided, after years of dragging DSLRs, to switch to an iPhone X, and I'm pretty happy camper... Any of these will get you there:

Another vote for the Olympus EM10. A lot of my watch photos are just shot with the EM10 and a 25mm f1.8 lens.

The 25mm lens is my do all lens; for watch photos and general photography.
