F10 for artwork...WHY?
Dec 8, 2005

I need to get a camera and 80 per cent of its use will be for photographing my small paintings and drawings with no flash and in mostly bad light conditions with only South light. I spend half my time waiting for the right light!! Bright BUT sunless!

I have heard from at least three sources that the Fuji F10 is the best camera (in this price range) for photographing art. Is this really correct and if so, what are the special qualities of this camera?

It is no use for me it having the possibility of 1600 ISO because I need to use 50 to 200 maximum, and, WITH NO FLASH. I have used a Canon G2 (4 million pixels)(borrowed) which was OK but not enough pixels for bigger prints. I tried the Canon A62O (7 million pixels) which is almost useless for my needs. Pictures too soft - I'm looking for sharpness, contrast and saturation, and the A620 doesn't have this, at least not for the pictures I am taking.

Can anyone help here please?
