Hey there.

Need a little more info. Budget, type of camera, etc. Else, the recommendations aren't going to be all that beneficial. Do you want a point and shoot, or are you willing (and wanting) to sink money into a DSLR system?

DO NOT PURCHASE ITEMS IN THE MARKETPLACE VIA PAYPAL GIFT, AND DO NOT REQUEST OTHER USERS PAY FOR ITEMS VIA PAYPAL GIFT. IT IS AGAINST PAYPAL AND OCN.NET'S RULES, AND YOU WILL GET BURNED.

You don't have to like the rules, but you agree to follow them by joining Overclock.net.

No I'm not looking for another money hole. I do not know what a DSLR system is, but it sounds exspensive and I'm just trying to get sharper picture that is taken from 2-4 feet away. lol.

At that price he could opt for something better.

Much sharper, bigger sensor so less noise at higher ISOs. Still 2.0x crop factor so it will still have a bit more noise compared to APS-C. It works well for snapshots too.

Though any new point and shoot with manual settings will do.

If you want to take better pictures of your rig you will need to learn some basic rules of photography.
