your mobile phone is the perfect solution if you have a decent quality camera on it, mine is quite poor so wouldnt be an option for me, especially if I need to capture anything in detail. Digital cameras are so cheap now, you can pick up an old 6 megapixel Canon compact for peanuts on the auction site, the quality is amazing and they have a good macro function(depicted by a small flower symbol) so well worth keeping an eye out for.
Don’t worry about megapixels too much either, this does not give you a better quality picture once you get above 3 megapixels, it just means the more you have the bigger you can print out the picture.
