    I moved the thread ok, but some of the posts might need to go to the new post. I don't think I can do that?
    O.S.O.K.

    You can't move a thread without also moving all the posts along with it. Also, there is no way to move posts individually.

    Well guys, I guess if you want to re post in the new topic please feel free. You could probably copy and paste so you don't have to retype it again.

    my camera is a minolta dimage 7i 5mp... it's starting to show its age a bit, but I'd much rather knock more guns and ammo of the list before replacing the camera ;D

    Juice,

    What do you think the best readily avaliable lighting is for taking shots of guns and stuff? Obviously a flash doesn'y work too well, is side lighting the way to go?

    Aussie,

    A softbox or light tent would be the best way for inexpensive product photography on lighting equipment like strobe.

    If you don't have any lighting equipment, then of course daylight from a north facing window would work but the light will be a bit blueish so if using film you'll have to correct with a correcting filter. If using digital, set the white balance once setup for the shot.

    With a softbox I'd light a firearm from above and slightly behind, then flag the light so the light isn't visible in the lens. The flag will block the light from directly entering the lens so there'd be no flair. Then I'd put a white card under the lens which would act as fill and fill in the shadows created in front and underneath the firearm.

    With a north light setup , I'd light from slightly behind and to one side, the use a fill card on the opposite side of the light source to fill in the shadows.

    Get back in the game. The D80, D200 and D300 are all remarkable cameras. You don't have to spend a lot of money anymore to get good quality 35mm digital.

    Photography is also one of my inexpensive (NOT) hobbies. I've got a lot in Nikon lenses with no current body since my camera died and I haven't replaced it yet. All my recent shots I've been posting are using my wife's Casio digital.
    I just read about the D300 while scanning a magazine at the airport and that old urge is resurfacing. Did I read right that it's sensor is now full 35mm size at 13+ mp or am I mixing it with the D3?

    The D300 has a DX (23.6x15.8mm) format CMOS sensor.

    The D3 has a 35mm film (36x24mm) sized CMOS sensor.
    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/spec...n/nikon_d3.asp

    Although my D200 also has a DX format sensor, I still use 35mm format lenses on my camera body. The reverse is not true, you can not use DX format lenses on a camera with a 35mm sensor.

    When I do eventually get a camera with a 35mm format sensor, I will already have a supply of lenses. I think eventually there will be a move away from the DX format as the pixel count increases to such a count that it becomes difficult to fit them all on a DX format sensor. When that happens is anyones guess...
