09-07-2001, 07:35 PM
Hi everybody I am a beginning painter and am shopping for a digital camera. I would like to take pictures of my artwork. I also need close up capability for photographing armor models that I build and enter in competition. In need to take my photos from very close to frame an area of 2"by2" at times. Is this possible with a Dig. Cam. I am looking to spend at the most $400.00. I'm not computer or digital savvy so if you would explain in laymans terms I would be grateful,and for any opinions that anyone has.
Thanks Tony P.

I looked for almost 6 months at different cameras.
The one I finally choose was Canon PowerShot A20.
It has 2.1 mega pixels.
The price was around $400.00.
If you look under Fawn in this forum as well as Hatteras Revisited in the Landscape Forum it will give you an idea.
One of a painting, the other of wildlife.
I am quite pleased with what I got for the price I was willing to pay.

Hi Leaflin, Yes, it does look like your pictures came out great. Thats probably the camera I am going to get. My son in law works at Circuit City and can get it for cost around 200.00 or less. I 'm looking foward to getting it so I can post, but have to wait till I go back to work (money's tight)!!

i have a kodax DC4800 and i love it, i think it is great. it have 3.1 megapixels. all my pictures come out great. i would look around and check different ones out. it took me a little while to find this one but i think it is great for its price, which you can find below $400. Some places have it more expensive but i got mine from staples. check it out. circuit city probably will have it. well have fun trying to find "the camera for you" lol
