Hello. I searched for a photography forum and this seemed to be the most active one I could find, so I hope I'll get some good pearls of wisdom. I take pictures for a living, but just guitars. I own an online guitar store, just ebay now but I'm currently building my own store site, and the best way for me to show prospective customers what I have to offer is with good photos of my inventory. So shipping is a big part of job too, setting up the guitars, typing reviews of guitars, etc, but I spend dozens of hours regularly in digital photography. As of yesterday, I purchased an Olympus C-725. You can read about it here: http://www.cameras.co.uk/details/olympus-c-725.cfm although that reviewer doesn't particularly like the image quality, other reviewers do and personaly, I think this guys sample photos look fine. Here's the crux of problem. In my world, what I do is euphamistically labeled 'guitar porn' because we take up close and personal shots of various guitar parts. I took this picture w/my camera using a macro setting and was no more than 20" away and didn't use the tripod. The quality of this photo shows the detail of the grain in the wood that I'm after: I have some adjustments on the camera and I took that at the minimal image size, hard imaging with more contrast. I'd like to be able to get that kind of grain detail in a full body shot like this: That's actually the same guitar but do you see how I lose all that lovely grain detail? What kind of digital camera do I need to get that kind of grain detal for a full body shot? My 'studio' set up consists of four 500 watt quartz work lights, 2 on each side, plus the overhead florescents. I'm using a florescent correction feature on the camera. I also use a tripod and use the self timer to snap all the pictures so I don't risk moving the camera. I just really need to juice up my clarity and I'm wondering what kind of digital camera will do this and how much money are we talking about? Thanks!
