Make sure the camera has the macro function, and good optical zoom. Don't care about digital zoom, digital zoom is just making the pixels larger. Auto focus is also very handy.
The only cam I've used on minis is a Caplio G4 Wide. Good enough for me, and not an over expensive camera either. 180Â£ or something. You can see my pics in the chaos gallery. (Y)

I use a powershot A80 I purchased specifically to take pictures of miniatures. Learn to use the white balance, and macro functions. I like to use a tripod and a slow shutter speed when I can, and a fast shutter speed when I am holding the camera.
So far I have no complaints as this camera is allot better than my old one.
Also you might want to look at some older posts about cameras; I remember some older conversations about this.
I shut down all lamps in the room, puts up a little lamp and so its light is directed against the wall behind the miniature.
Then I take normal flash on the model.
The models comes out good, maybe a bit brighter then its usaly is, but that is not much ^_^
It all doesn't matter, as long as your digital camera has:
-manual lighht regulation
if you get this, you can get every picture right. Thing is, those cameras are quite expensive...

I was rather lucky and managed to get a hold of a rather sophisticated camera that a photographer friend of mine had. Of course the film is spendy so I only use it once in a blue moon, and I'm none too hot on painting..
But otherwise a nice digital camera with optical zoom can make all the difference, digital zoom simply blows up the pixels. I've even found that a some of the newer PDA cameras take good pictures as long as your not blowing them up to gigantic proportions or anything..
