It doesn't neatly fall into the three categories you listed, but one of my 
photography buff colleages purchased a Panasonic FZ18 last year, after 
much deliberation.

One of the first photos he took with it was of the motherboard of an iMac 
in our (poorly lit) office, (no tripod, extra lighting, etc.) and I 
thought the detail you could garner from the board (considering the 
circumstances) was pretty good.

He's kindly sent it to me, and I've temporarily stuck it up at:


The FZ18 has now been replaced with the FZ28, but he believes the only 
change in the new model is to a higher resolution CCD.

The FZ28 is available at Amazon for 235 pounds (where it's also getting a 
5 star rating).
