Nice one Coach


You need to take the pictures on a white background 9use printer paper if needed) with full macro setting to capture as much detail as possible and ensure the finished results are fully in focus.

Check the pictures on the TIG Site to get an idea Smile

Post your camera model here and we can tell you the best setting to use for weapon pics.

Depending on the model it can be called advance macro, super macro, full macro etc.

Also its worth getting your white balance, ISO all set right as well Smile

I think I have some confirmed repros in my set of weapons. I would be glad to donate them to the cause if need be! Smile

Of course, someone would have to replace them with the real ones then. lol!

Hehe worth a try Chris eh Wink

Not having one of those Coach try a macro shot and see what the quality comes out like, you will have to be very still as itll blur with any movement, when your settled and ready for the shot press the button lighly and hold it there, you should see the camera trying to focus on whats in front of it, when it settles press the button down the remainder of the way to finish the shot. I have a tripod for mine but try putting it on something solid and do a few test shots and upload to pc to see quality, the Cybershots usually take a very good photo anyway ... then go from there Smile
