  • Camera Question for Ian

    or any other camera expert ..
    I have been looking at the Canon PowerShot A720 IS camera and would value your opinion . I know there are better ones out there but this is within my budget . I will use it mainly to take jewellery photos

    Hi Chris

    I have an A620 and it's superb! In fact I sometimes favour it over my all-singing all-dancing big mutha Digital SLR.

    Go for it!

      Hmm, that camera looks better than what I'm struggling on with at present!

        Just to butt in again...

        But for anyone wondering, it has a great Macro (close up) function. So I would say it's very good for taking pictures of jewellery. Just remember to put it on Macro first... I am usually wondering why it won't focus at 2cm until I remember about the tulip!

            I've got an Olympus mju700 and I've been really happy with it. It has an 'auction' setting, which automatically takes 3 shots at 3 different exposures, at the right size for e-auctions etc. ~ I pop the camera on a tiny tripod, so I don't get any 'wobble'. The software is great too, it allows you to 'smarten up' your picture and adjust the colour etc. It's got tons of other features on it too. I'm really cr*p at photography but I'm really chuffed with the pics from my little camera

              How much did you pay for that model?

                I think we paid about £170 but that was over a year ago, I would imagine that the price may have come down since then. Make sure you get a good memory card I think we've got an XD - no idea what that all means, my OH sorted it out

                  ive got the olympus 700 as well and it is great - the auction feature is good and it not only has a macro setting but a super macro setting too! Im practicing at the mo actually in preparation for my new etsy site!
