The digital cameras I've seen cannot take pictures of things that are far away, like a mountain, and things that are close, like a driver's license, with the same camera settings. Instead, you have to use the buttons on the camera to inform it if the subject is closer than about one and a half feet, or further away than that. When the camera is set to take pictures of close objects, it is said to be in macro mode.
The cameras I've seen that sell for $150 and up do have macro mode available; make sure any camera you get has it. As for pixels, I would venture to say that any camera good enough to have macro mode will also have enough pixels (3 million pixels and up).
