one last question... how can i take better pics with the average joe digital camera (i.e. less contrast and more clarity) ?? thanks in advance guys
For starters, better cameras have better (more
) contrast. Some cheap cameras have "scene" modes that increase the contrast as much as that camera can "read". You can play with those, but you most likely won't see a difference. I would play around in the menu and see if there is a contrast or picture quality section. Either way, don't just run it on AUTO. As for more clarity, you won't get it unless you stop shaking your hand while taking pictures.
jj, just joshin! The clarity of your pictures is related to the hardware that your camera has. i.e. quality lens, quality chip, etc.
So, in short, nothing drastic. Sorry.
P.S.---> If you want better pictures of the interior, good luck, it's damn near impossible.
