OLYMPUS SP-590UZ - $309.99

I've used an older Olympus model (same series) for professional photography and they come with a Macro and Super Macro setting that I've found to be absolutely fantastic.

Here is the Macro range on the Kodak:

Wide macro: 0.1–1.0 m
Tele macro: 0.7–3.5 m

Now here is the Macro range on the Olympus:

Wide: 3.9" – infinity (0.1m – infinity)
Tele: 66.9" – infinity (1.7m – infinity)

Super Macro mode: 0.39" - infinity (1cm - infinity)

In all honesty I couldn't tell you as I've never used Macro on a Kodak yet. But if you are serious about wanting high quality Macro's the Olympus will not disappoint you at all.
