I own an older Sony Mavica 7 digital Camera that I purchased last May. It
save photos on a standard floppy disk and the quality of the pictures has
been good enough (640x480) for virtually all of the viewing types that I have
need for (screen viewing, deskjet printing etc.). I use the camera to keep
track of structural problems that occur in constrution - tracking projects
and more. It has become an important piece of equipment for me.
There is a software package that I would highly recommend and have mentioned
on this list before. Enroute is a company that makes two pieces of software
called Quickstitch and Quickstitch 360 that can stitch together a series of
photographs to make a panoramic view of the project with no seams. The
software compensates for the line of stitching to create a seamless match.
This provides a full view of your project and reduces the distortion.
Enroute is accessible by the web at www.enroute.com. I highly recommend this
if you are trying to shoot large buildings or very wide shots.
