I'm in search of a new digital camera. The one I have works great, but not for very close up shots.
I'm looking for the best digital camera I can buy and need help from all you photography folks out there.
The most important thing in my search is that it is able to take very sharp close up shots.
They do not make such a camera. Sorry.
Can I use that for my sig line?
Are you looking for something easy to use? What about size?
I like Canon, I have a point and shoot. Cowdoc has a similar thread you might want to check out.
Hey Marty :-D
Yes, the easier to use, the better. It's going to be used for a business, so the picture quality and close up shots are most important.
You wouldn't have a link the that thread?
Thanks Marty :-D
Size doesn't really matter in this case
Duh, I see you added the link ;-)
This is what I have and took great shots of wildlife on a recent trip.
That's a nice one Marty and it looks like it's very comfortable in the hand. Have you taken real close up pics with it?
Montana (Hi btw
Different cameras were discussed here:
Maybe that will help
Edit to add this: I still haven't read the manual to my camera and I know I probably should
Montana- Although some of the cameras now have anti-shake features, the best thing to do when you are taking a closeup is to use a tripod.
Digital cameras are different from film cameras, as there is somewhat of a hesitation from the time that to hit the button, and the picture actually is taken. In the better cameras the hesitation is less, but if you are doing portraiture, you are still better off with a tripod.
Those anti-shake features need some time .... working :wink:
With good digital SLR cameras you can make photograph as good as with any film photocamera - though this can be a problem for the lenses, but that's equal for both types.
Thanks guys :-D
I can go as far as $500-$600 if I have too, but I don't need all those features I'd probely never use.
Clearity with close up shots is the most important. It'll mainly be used for still shots, like an item on a table or display. I need to be able to get right up close to the items and get clear details.
This is a close up I took with a Canon Powershot S3 IS but, I have seen pictures taken from a Nikon D50 that are much clearer.
This gave me a chance to post this pretty guy again
Wow! What an amazingly beautiful Pic TTH. Thanks so much for posting it!
Now who's got a Nikon D50 who can post a pic for me?
