Hi Jason,FISH WORLD ERIE wrote:It might just be the mega pixels. Mine has 3.3. How about you Mustafa what camera do you use for taking pictures of your shrimp and small crays.
I used to take pictures with a very similar camera to yours (Sony Cypershot DSC-P7 with 3.3 megapixels). Those little cameras have lousy macro abilities, so I used to hold a magnifying lens, that I had salvaged from my binoculars, in front of the camera lens for macro shots. Worked reasonably well, but not well enough. So, earlier this year I decided to buy a digital SLR camera (Canon "digital rebel XT", also called Canon EOS 350D) with a dedicated 105mm macro lens. It takes some getting used to as it's totally different from "normal" digital cameras, but you can't beat a digital SLR when it comes to picture quality and versatility. The downside is the high price. It's worth every penny though if you are taking tons of pictures.
Then there are "normal" digital cameras out there that have pretty good macro capabilities...some of the forum members have them and seem to be able to take pretty decent pictures. They might want to chime in.... Also, do a search on the forum as many members stated before what equipment they are using.
