Good digital camera for using indoors

by dace67 / July 21, 2006 1:13 AM PDT


I want a good digital camera which has a good flash, captures colours nicely and that can be used mainly inside. I have just started a new net based business and need to get good set based photos of my products. Can anybody help with a few options!

Thanks in advance!

Table-top photography
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / July 21, 2006 6:27 AM PDT

You should first investigate getting or making a ''light tent''.

A ''light tent'' is usually shaped something like a box with translucent sides and top. The object is put inside and lights are put outside the tent and shine though the sides and top.

Table top photography is all about ''light''.

With 3D objects you want to illuminate the object well but you also want to insure good ''depth of field''.
This takes a lot of well distributed light.
A flash is not the answer.

And you are going to need a tripod.
Close-up and macro photography require you to hold the camera very steady.

It would be nice to have a camera with manual controls in addition to the standard auto features.
Something like the Canon A500 or A600 series of cameras.

Here is a link to a free short course in table-top photography:

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
