Hate to brag, but I have a Bridge (Halfway between a DSLR and a P&S) which has a big lens and a small sensor for super macro work,
Canon 60D DSLR for larger work (Big pictures) for better pictures, and an old 20D DSLR for places I am afraid of taking my 60D.
Invest in a good bridge camera, as they will pay you back for many years. I recommend the Canon bridge cameras personally. Awesome super macro modes, and awesome functions
Because I decided that sitting all day on the computer during summer break isn't a fun way to spend it. I decided after 4 weeks of doing nothing, I wanted to make a model kit. The best 3 AM decision I have made to date. This current (and my first) real kit since 7th grade is going better than I would have ever imagined
