need a camera to shoot artwork for reproduction

hi, i'm new not only here but i suppose to photography as well

i do have a canon powershot a 70 that i have been using but now i am needing to upgrade

i have to shoot my paintings for submissions to agents, manufacturers etc

i need to shoot in RAW or TIFF format (and then i need to use photoshop... that is another whole can of worms)

i have been looking at canon, as i know that their customer service was wonderful when i had an issue with my a70, (they fixed it without charge even though it was bought USED!)

and from the very limited research i've done i got the impression that for shooting art it's either canon or nikon

i also know that i need a large amount of mega pixels

i am so not a photographer it isn't funny.. (it's ok if you all are laughing now, cause i am too)

but i really need to figure this out. i have been looking and reading online,

and right now my camera savings account is at 270. with a possible 200 added in the next few weeks (best buy gift certificates)

i did read that the body is one thing but that the LENSES were really what made the shot.

i have a tripod and plan on using that to shoot with, probably in my studio with lights

i would be grateful for any help you folks could give me

thank you

vi
