I Need Help! It's Time To Upgrade My Camera

I need help from my wonderful blogging friends.  For months now I've been thinking about upgrading my little camera.  Yes, the time has come.  It has been a true friend, a reliable workhorse, tossed around and dropped multiple times, and it never once left me with a dead battery.  They just don't build them like they used to; the back of this beauty is made from wood.  Up until now I've resisted trading it in for a newer, fresher, smarter, more efficient model.

Film No. 116 is getting harder to find these days, so I thought I'd upgrade to this beauty.....

I love the lines on this spiffy Brownie Target Six-20.  It had mixed reviews, but I couldn't resist the sale price of $5.00.  Now I need to figure out what type of film it uses and how to open it.

Don't you love these old boxes?  So simple. So fossil like.  So few choices.  Seriously, this is where I need help from my friends.  The camera I actually use (Sony Cyber-shot) has been good to me, but I need to upgrade to something other than a point and shoot camera.  Photographing jewelry with this camera is really difficult because it just doesn't know where to focus, and I'm not getting the clarity I want.  My new camera will be used mostly for posting items on my web site, my "one of these days" Etsy shop, and of course, my blog.  Sooooo, I really need your input. 

What kind of camera do you use?  What do you like about it?  What don't you like?  What questions should I be asking?  All your tips will be so helpful.

Also, I decided that these two lovely old and tattered cameras need to be repurposed.  If I can figure out how to open them up and get them apart, the parts just might make some great jewelry.
