Yes, was going to also recommend the Panasonic S5.

But ANY camera can work, (with the appropriate lens).

I am just not sure FF is best with its inherent narrow/shallow DOF, (and is more expensive than necessary).

A deeper/wider inherent DOF of a smaller sensor may be better for that specific application unless he needs larger print sizes.

Thus 1/2.3" gives widest DOF, but I do NOT recommend going that small, and thus recommend 1"-type camera WITH FOCUS STACKING that may be usable for what he intends.

I am impressed by these images ...
