Seeking Camera Advice

Hello photography friends!

I’ve been thinking about getting a new camera, specifically a DSLR. I’m not an amateur, but I’m also not a professional photographer. To put it simply, I want something that will take clear photographs and has good focus (for macro photography). Something with video and sound would be nice as well.

Thank you!
