Nikon CoolPix 995, bought in 2001. It has 3.1 megapixels. She
doesn't have any add on lenses. She uses a Photoflex Basic
Starlite Light Kit for lighting. She makes all the necessary
changes to saturation, image, etc. but the colors do not come out
accurately on her website. She particularly has trouble with
greens and then blues.
Wait - the Nikon 995 is a great camera. The problem is the light
source at 3200K. Set the white balance, and you should get the right
colors. Or, get a cloud dome and some of the little Ott lights which
are much closer to true daylight. The 995 does great closeups, with
auto focus even. There is no need or capability for additional
lenses. I use that exact camera for all my photos, and it's great!
Is she setting the camera for close up shots - the little flower? and
then using the timer to get jiggle free shots? She must have a
tripod or the cloud dome to eliminate movement.
Go to my website and click on pendants - those are all shot with a
995 Nikon Coolpix. Look at each of them in full size, the colors are
true, and the pictures are appropriate for a website. I've taken most
of the pictures to 20" by 30" for display in my booth.
And if she wants to get rid of the camera, I'll take it. In a skinny
