I use a 8mm sharp viewcam video camera, $600.00. With the 4"
screen I can see exactly what I’m taking. Zoomed completely out
to infinity, the camera can be put right up to the item like a
Macro. I video tape from various angles and lighting for about 2
minutes each piece. I then use my computer and a $60.00 device
called “AIGOTHCHA 2”. I hook my camera into this video capturing
device and then can capture as many images as I need. The
software that came with the device even allows me to make AVI’s.
I must say that my pictures look pretty good for the price and
setup is a snap. If you would like to see some images made this
way you are welcomed to visit my web page at
