    Looking for a new camera (from ListServe)

    Does anyone have suggestions for an economical camera that is good for collection documentation? It was suggested that we purchase a Cannon Power Shot D10 x 12mp, because the photos are amazing even when the camera person moves. I want to be sure we are getting the right camera. Recommendations would be a huge help.

    Thank you.

    Rebecca, Yes, definitely make sure your camera has image stabilization. We had a Canon PowerShot without that feature, and it was impossible for some people to take a clear picture (you had to have really steady hands.) We wound up replacing it with another model.

    I have in the past used a wonderful canon with a screen that rotates, enabling good pictures from any angle. As long as a camera is reliable, you can take pictures more than adequate for databases and reference in macro mode (the little flower symbol) The part that you need to consider is the set up. Most cameras have florescent filters and such, but additional lighting (does not necessarily have to be "photo" lights, can be clamp on lights with nice bulbs), a tripod ($25 and no more blur), and a set up with a plain black, white, and or grey background will make far more difference than the camera itself. You can take photos very quickly and easily without moving the camera everytime if you can photograph based on size of object.
