Re: Bogner Ecstasy circuit pics
Dave, the rez is better but the focus is still soft. If you have it in automatic focus mode, you might want to retake the pictures either in manual focus mode, or provide more ambient light so the auto-focus mechanism can lock in on the image.  
 
BTW, I have the Coolpix 800 and just love it! Real nice results and once you get ahold of some NIHI batteries, dirt cheap to use.

Anyone have any suggestions for an affordable general purpose digital camera ? I'd love to be able to make pic's of amp innerds, and general purpose bench-to-web pix. AF

I've got one of those digital mini-cam thingies that I got on the cheap. 40 bucks! I think most multi-media systems are shipping with them these days. They take suprisingly good pictures for what they are but having to have it tethered to the computer is something of a drawback.

I can recommend the Nikon Coolpix 800. The pictures are excellent and if you really try hard, you can find it for under $400 which is a steal. It has the same "engine" as the $1000 Coolpix 950 and takes the exact same quality pictures. The difference is they left off the mostly unnecessary advanced manual features that are useful if you are a pro but you probably have a good 35mm that can do the pro stuff better anyway.  
 
One suggestion, order a couple of sets of nickel metal hydride batteries and a good charger. Those cameras will eat up alkalines like crazy.

I thought a webcam would do the trick. Wrong! They are cheap but they can't get a decent detailed closeup like the Bogner shots. Plus you have to supply the light which is a problem if your computer area isn't well lit.  
 
If you already have a 35mm camera, a cheaper route would be a scanner. You'd need to compare the quality of a scanned photo to see if it would be good enough for your purposes.
