If you are going to buy a new camera, I would lean towards buying one from one the traditional camera manufacturers such as Fuji, Canon etc. Most of the photos I have uploaded to the Forum are "as taken" by the camera apart from resizing them in Paint. For the photos taken in the attic (most of the model photos - such as these UK models), I use a OttLite "trueColor" task lamp to provide extra light. Most of the time I select the "Auto" programme, focus, decide whether I can hold the camera steady for the time and then click. When I need depth of field I will set Aperture priority and try to get the highest F number with a time I can manage without shaking. My camera handles the white balance for me, though the trueColor light probably makes the job easier. The camera is a Fuji S9500 which was quite high end when I got it, and has been superceded twice or three times since, but not always to better reviews.
