For Product Shots "What Kind Of Camera Are You Using&qu


Guest

Recommended Posts

Dear OSers,

I have a lot of products and I want to get the images of them online.

I was going to buy a camera but then realized that I there are too many

to choose from. Can any of you tell me what camera you are using and

what settings do you have your images set to when you take them. Also

What size did you make your thumbnails. And What size did you make the

image after you click on the item and it shows a bigger image. Thanks :wink:

We use two different cameras.

 

One is a Sony Cybershot DSC-P31 with a 2.1 megapixel CCD and it gets about 140-150 full size (1600X1200) images on a 128 megabyte Sony Memory Stick.

 

The other is also a Sony Cybershot but a model they don't make anymore. It has a 4 megapixel CCD and can take about 64 pictures using its on-board memory. This one also has a 3X optical zoom and a 7X digital zoom. Unfortunately, this one doesn't use memory stick media because it is the better camera.

Hey Wayne,

 

Obviously you're a gamer, because of your avatar. Isn't that an image from Baldur's Gate II?

 

Anyways, I was wondering what you thought of my shop?

NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.

We started with a 2 MegaPixel Fuji and recently upgraded to a Minolta 4 MegaPixel S404. The Minolta has been a major improvement. The Fuji only worked well outdoors with a lot of light. The S404 has been great and takes great shots in any light. I think the extra pixles make the difference. More pixels, more detail.

 

We post process all our pics w/Pictographics iCorrect software to set color balance, then reduce size, and post. Combination works well. You can get a free copy of iCorrect 4.0 at http://www.picto.com/affiliate/digitran.htm.

 

Hope this helps.

I am a gamer but mostly offline. Don't know where the avatar came from as it is one of the stock ones available on this site. Your site is nice looking.

Did Baldur's Gate II have fremen in it? Whoever it is in the avatar, he is wearing a stillsuit (Nose filter and the drinking tube.)

Got mine in August or thereabouts from Jessops.

Went shopping with a "wish-list" of:

 

at least 2.0 megapixels

optical zoom (not so much for web-use)

the closest macro possible

 

After much head-shaking at other stores, Jessops came up with the Ricoh Caplio RR-120 at ?199.

 

2.3 megapixel, 3x optical but the best bit was the macro (officially 8cm macro, but several reviewers - and me - have found that it actually does perfect macro shots at just over 1cm!).

 

I suppose it depends what your product is, but the Ricoh's been great for us (works well in all lighting too)

thanks guys..

i was thinking about the cannon S40 or 30  

what do you think

 

I have both and they are great (no big difference between them really for web site use). In Japan, they are rated high above the others for natural picture quality, features, etc and they also produce 640 x 480 jpgs which is a nice size for scaling down.

 

Since viturally all the cameras are made in Japan, I tend to think that they should know which is best!

i use since one year for my websites and for privat snapshots

a canon ixus 300. ( also a Canon A 40 )

 

i can really recommend it.

you can at differend cf-cards ( until 128 mb )

and the picture quallity is the same then the

Canon A 40 with 2.1 mio pixel.

 

i prefere the ixus in professional use ( over 2000 pictures )

because the batteries of the A 40 going empty after 40 shots.
