Perfect (or at least close enough). Slap that link in the thread about your P.38, and you are in business.

One thing I will add. I have a 12 mega pixel digital camera. On the round dial with all the little icons there is one that looks like a little flower. (kind of like a Tulip). I never knew what that was until about 2 weeks ago when I was told it was for taking close up photos. Now I use that feature all the time. It works well for taking a photo up close of a serial number on a pistol or even for getting really close to a coin to take photos. If you have a newer digital camera, chances are you have that little flower setting.

Below is part of a post that I cut and pasted from the P5 page to help someone who was trying to post some photos of a P5c.

I suggest turning off the flash and using indirect light or natural sunlight. There are plenty of upgrades from that to produce better photos (e.g., polarizer to reduce glare), but IMO the first and most important step is to turn off the flash. See the examples below of direct and indirect fluorescent and sunlight. All of these were shot with an Olympus point and shoot compact camera in automatic-everything mode. (My Nikon DSLR photos are much better, but they have not yet been uploaded to Photobucket.)

Flash off, direct indoor fluorescent (note the tube reflection on the slide):

Searcher, I think I'm going to start a new thread sometime soon when I get a little spare time (Ha!) with step-by-step instructions complete with lots of pictures. You know, a "Posting Pictures for Dummies" kinda thing so the forum members who are having technology issues can easily post their pictures for all to see.

Look forward to seeing that, Steve. We could definitely use a simple, step-by-step series of instructions for the posting novice.

I think that Tanfoglio showed us his indirect-lighting photo box some time back, and I recall another version being shown on the forum. Those setups will produce the most even light and settings can be optimized on the camera, hence The King's fantastic photos. I often shoot my photos inside so that I can post them quickly while suffering from a case of "new gun fever" or outside while I am shooting. But for serious photos, you can't beat using a photo box (or whatever the proper name is). My $0.02.

I don't understand why, if using a cell phone camera, we cannot post a picture to this forum, the say way we post pictures to Facebook. All you do is browse a picture file on your phone, select the pic or pics you want to post, and FB will do the rest. That would be a plus for this site in posting pictures.

Hey guys, thank you for all your inputs. I just wanted to let you know that I have moved this thread over to the Walther General Discussion as the previous location "Feedback, Comments and Issues" is dedicated more for logging on issues, avatars not working, unable to see your pictures.

Thank you for your contributions and enjoy the site! Let us know if you have any questions or concerns

Cheers,
Natalie
