It is not so much the camera but the lens you use. A lot of your point and shoots have a flower setting but that mainly aids you in selecting a shallow depth of field for you. You can use a wide angle lens and move in close. You can also get convertors to use with your lens. They also sell filters that act as a magnifier. You can't beat a good macro lens though.

What Regenia said; the lens is most important. Canon manufactures a fine camera, and many photographers are even Canon snobs-but regardless of your machine, you have to have the right parts. Learn to manipulate your depth-of-field with use of a macro lens; it will really help pop out those extreme close-up shots you're looking for. Play around a bit; your camera will open you up to a world of never-boredom. :)
