    Hey guys,

    i wana print cd jackets and magazines so i want my pictures to look profesional..can anyone tell me which camera is the best to use for this job? my price range is no more then $500.

    the printer also determines the quality so if u can, then tel me what kind of printer should i use. keep in mind:
    · A CD jacket length x width is 9.8”x 4.12”then folded in the middle.
    · A magazine length x width is 17”x 8.8” then folded in the middle at the half of 17”
    with a rough estimate i'll say it will be doin 4000 pages a month in total.

    CD Jacket? Any camera will do. Same with the printer. Most CD jackets are no where near photo quality.
    Btw for 4000 pages a month of cd jackets it would be far more cost effective to outsource the printing.

    1. The best pro cameras cost way more than $500. More like $5000. (Nikon D3)
    2. Besides it's the person running the camera that makes an image look pro.
    3. The lens is more important than the camera.
    Happy shooting

    Your pictures will "look professional" if you hire a professional photographer. $500 will get you a decent point and shoot camera and if you know how to use it and an editing program like Photoshop you can get excellent results.

    In all seriousness, any camera will do.
