I am thinking to buy a digital camera Coolpix 990; does anyone
have the experience with this camera and does this digital camera
get rid of the pinkish color on jewels ?
I recently purchased this camera, and I am extremely pleased with it.
I had previously tried using a scanner and found the colors to be
strange and not very satisfactory, so then I just shot my regular
slides and had them dumped to CD at the photographic services shop,
which was easier in some ways, but still prone to color changes. (They
had no problems with landscapes and people and buildings, everyone
knows what colors look right for those, but gold? On who-knows-what
kind of background? Green, pink, blue, orange . . ? I supplied them
with a sample of it and that helped some.)
Now that I have the CP990, I just shoot all of my own website
pictures, no problem. It has a good macro setting and will let you
adjust everything to your liking.
I even made myself an adapter to use my closeup filters from my 35mm
camera, so I can get truly amazing detail and clarity on the smaller
Not all of the pictures on my website were done with the new camera,
since many are of pieces that were sold long ago and are no longer
available to me, but all of the ones that I’ve added since late
January of this year were made with it. Most of my set opals, and the
emerald earrings that I just finished, were shot in natural light out
in my front yard using the new camera.
