Default Scanning xrays


I said I'd scan and post my xrays, using a light box with my flatbed
scanner. Well, tried it and it doesn't work well. LIght isn't bright
enough.

However, the xrays on the light box looked very good, so I got out my
digital camera and shot a frame.....much better. Tomorrow I'll set up
my tripod and do all 18.

Will also post the printout of the treatment plan.

Great news, looking forward to your pics.

Herewhileback, someone posted a panoramic film.
It was reported that the x-ray film was taped to a
sliding glass door and photographed with a digital
camera.

Am considering purchasing the Olympus 5.0
Mega pixel camera with 3.0X optical zoom.
Any comments ?

Be sure the camera you buy has a macro mode, one that will let you
zoom in to about 4 inches or less.

I couldn't have shot these xrays without it.
An excellent site to read reviews and discussions of digital cameras,
as well as very active forums, is at:

We are on our best behavior as far as "Photography" goes ........
those guys the alt.photo.newsgroup, they can post 500-600 posts to
their threads without blinking an eye ........

If they ignore us so much the better, right Steve?

It depends so much on how you expect to use your camera. . Portability
was very important to me, and I chose the Canon S100 almost four years
ago. At the time, it was about the most compact available, and I can
put it in my shirt pocket.....it goes just about everywhere with me.
But size might not be important to you, so you have to think about how
you're likely to use it.

There's a new and similar Canon model out that was just reviewed at dpreview.


I've found Phil Askey's reviews to be right on the mark. To save time
jump to "Conclusion"....and you can read a capsule review of the models that interest you.


These digital cameras are really not expensive, not when you consider
the savings in film & processing. I've taken 3300 shots with my S100
and my daughter is over the 5000 mark with hers.. And they're so much
fun to use!

Be sure to get one that will focus down to 3 or 4 inches (macro mode)
and at least a 2x zoom. Don't buy the cheapest, basic model. The
extra features are usually worth it.

Good buying advice:

1. Best "Point and shoot" camera:
New Nikon CoolPix 5400
- 5 Megapixel
- uses CF I and CF II memory cards
- records in JPEG, TIFF and RAW formats
- 4x optical zoom, 28 mm to 112 mm
- Macro mode focus down to 3/4 of an inch without any lens accessories or
attachment

2. Best SLR camera
Canon EOS 10 D
- Canon Macro Twin-lite flash
- Canon Macro EOS 50 mm autofocus lens
- uses CF I and CF II memory cards
- records in JPEG and RAW formats
- included software allows images to be converted from RAW and saved as TIFF
if necessary
- ergonomics are excellent
- image quality does not get any better
