I was feeling a little blah about the shop because I hadn't moved some of the "older" inventory yet. It's been awhile. Part of my "revamping" was to take new shots of the older stuff; something with a little bit more visual interest. I bought a Kodak Z712 IS in August and I tried to take lots of close-up shots of my jewelry. For some reason, I just could not get it to zoom in close enough without being blurry. I spent a good 2 hours taking photos only to be extremely disappointed at the poor quality of the shots. That was it. Luckily, I kept my receipt and I returned it to the store that afternoon. (I had the camera for almost a month and a half.) I was determined to buy another camera; my original choice, the Canon Powershot S3IS, which had the most consistent reviews of any camera in my price range. Granted, the S3IS is an older model, but it seemed like a good choice. The store where I returned the Kodak no longer carried the Canon S3IS. I was eyeing a smaller Canon camera (rated in the Consumer Digest as one of the top 5 cameras on the market -- I don't remember which exact model it was) and almost convinced myself I didn't need 12x zoom and 7 megapixels. Just my luck, only the floor model was available at a clearance price of $160.00 or so. Nah. I went to WalMart next door seeking the Canon S3IS. None in stock. While browsing, I saw the Fujifilm FinePix S700. It not only had a macro setting, but it had a "Super macro" setting, which allowed me to get as close as 1 cm to my subject. Cool! I tested it on a pair of earrings I was wearing and I was sold. I asked the salesperson for it, and just my luck -- out of stock. **sigh** I went back to the first store. They had the exact camera on display. They made me wait, but they had a couple in stock. I got one. It works like a dream. I love it so far. And so, I spent Sunday afternoon taking pictures upon pictures of my inventory. Hopefully, I'll be ready to post by tomorrow night. I managed to get a Showcase spot on Etsy for Wednesday the 17th. Wish me luck!
