Close-Up Digital Photography

כ"ז אדר א' תשס"ט

I am grateful to my mother for allowing me to use her digital camera to take photos of the items I'm listing online at my etsy shoppe, but despite that, the auto-focus camera quite frankly sucks. LOL. It takes LOUSY close-up photos. I definitely need to invest in a digital camera capable of taking clear close-ups showing item details.

I know next to nothing about digital photography. I know I need a camera, a memory card and a USB cable to get the photos from the camera to my computer and that's about it. Perusing the internet, I am thinking about purchasing a Canon PowerShot A80 4MP Digital Camera w/ 3x Optical Zoom. Anyone have any thoughts about or experience using this camera or suggestions about another one? Think inexpensive. I don't want to spend a fortune at this point on a digital camera, but I do want one that can show item details and not blur them when shooting a close-up of the item. I want people to be able to see the item clearly and distinctly.

I think armed with a good camera with zoom capabilities I might be able to take decent photos, develop my photography skills, and take shots with a little bit more artistic perspective. Right now I'm rather limited in the camera area, but this will change and my photos will get better.

My daughter has an Olympus SP 550 that I love. So far it can do anything I ask of it... she lets me borrow it. With a good camera and adobe photoshop you should be able to make art.
