How do you make your photos? Or with what? Because when I take photos of my models to post them here theyīre always blurry. Thatīs annoying...
My camery is Casio Exilim with 8.1 mega pixels. I know there are much better ones but I donīt have the money to buy a camera for 200 euro
(I live in Germany, thatīs why euro)
Please tell me how you do it

Do you have a tripod? it helps a lot. I used a second hand 2.0 megapixel camera for my MP44 and it turned out fine.

i have found out that its easier(but tricky), and better quality if you take pictures in pitch black rooms, around half of my models r taken at midnight.

ok, i hope it helps, the hardest part i would say is getting the picture lined up in the center.

i also have my camera set to a focus mode(this mode is good for capuring still objest, such as Legos), this mode also makes pictures clearer, and u can try it out without having to wait till 2night :)

I don't have a very good camera either. I take my pictures in a room that has the most natural light in it. Then on my camera I make sure the flash is off and it is on portrait mode. Then I have to hold my camera very still, if I move it the picture comes out blurry. It takes a lot of patience.

Yeah, I usually have to hold my breath when taking pics. My dad has some kind of high-tech camera that he might let me use.

The pictures a blurry because you move the camera too much when you take your pictures. You might have to rest your camera on something when you take the pics.

Having a tripod is definately handy, but you can buy little flexable tripods for around 25$ (I don't know how many euros that is). They can be flexed around a an object like a chair or something. Also, having plenty of light is key. I use a spray booth, with 5 lights in it plus the light I get from the room. You should also check if your camera has a image stablilization setting, cause mine does and it REALLY helps.

That's funny, I've never heard of that happening before. If I were you, I would save my money and get a new camera.

i like my camera, it is a 10.1 mp, though it has its good and bad sides. as long as you can use a flash then its very clear, and most of my lego pictures r clear arent they? besides im saving my money for Legos :)
