OK guys............... here we go. I bought from www.newegg.com a new inexpensive web cam that takes 640 x 480 or with software 800 x 600 picture. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16826158033 It is a Creative Labs Live! Cam Vista IM 4L 0.3MP Effective Pixels 800 x 600 (software enhanced) 15fps USB Interface WebCam Go to the site and check out all the specs if you are interested., No.......... no micro mode.........thank goodness. But I thought this would give folks an idea of what to expect from an inexpensive camera. Also I chose a web cam to allow other uses and not limit it to taking airplane pictures. (I also liked that fact that since I can not hold a camera still enought to get a focused picture, this would take out that variable.) I've got it attached to the top of my monitor. I will show the original un-retouched photo and then a PhotoShop crop if you guys think it's neccessary to show what is possible. Here is the first shot of all the fuselage pieces cut out and ready for assembly. This is an un-retouched photo snaped throught the web cams software. 800 x 600 DISCLAIMER: John is NOT a photographer............period. John is NOT a PhotoShop expert......ditto again. This will be a good example of what a novice can expect because.......... well just because!
