First, I would like to thank all of you who have added to this
thread.We all have are own needs and expectations. So your choice is
your own, and I respect that.I would also like to get a digital
camera for my work ,I have had the opportunity to talk with a few
professional photographers and it seems that scanning a slide will
still give you the best image for the web. For the best examples go
Check out the jewelry pixs,I would like my shots to look so good. It
is pricey to have slides scanned by a professional lab but it will
give you the best results ,It just depends on how good do you want it
pros have told me that the one problem with the digital cameras are
the optics, in time this will change,these people are doing things
like the car adds you see in magazines,“very picky” I have heard the
same thing from jewelry photo pros,My point is look at the best and
decide what is acceptable for you.
I presently do mostly prints and then scan them into photoshop 5.5
,work with them for the web ,its getting better but yes I do waste
alot of prints.I use some for inventory records.
Thank all for the great tips and advice,please keep it coming.
