    I need a camera with a flip screen that does excellent macro/super zoom close-up shots.

    Thanks :)

    If you're not getting a DSLR or mirorrless, the phone works well.

    Basically any Panasonic mirrorless with a macro or superzoom lens. Don't know about other brands. Sony don't have much with flip out screens, but they do have tilting screens.

    Depends on your needs, budget and how much macro you need. 1:1? 1:2? 2:1? 5:1? There are a number of macro lenses for a variety of cameras that have flip screens from DSLRs to Mirrorless

    Thanks for your feedback guys. I really don't know the macro ratios but my old Canon Elph has excellent macro but no flip screen and no way to attach a monitor
