good job with a dirty one..

one question is what camera did you use to take the great they are nice..

I have tried to get good shots of cleaning and the pictures come out blah in low light like in restaurant, or they have a yellow look from the florescent lightning.

thanks a bunch and nice job.

Thank you all. I couldn't find my point n shoot that day, so i grabbed my wifes Canon Rebel EOS. I was really impressed with how well it did.

I gotta say that lugging a digital slr around was kinda bulky. Can't exactly put it in your pocket.

Great pocket camera

If you guys are looking for an excellent pocket sized point and shoot digital camera - I highly recommend checking out the PANASONIC ZR3 or ZX3 (same model).

I have a nice Nikon D90 digital SLR camera. We also do some product shots at the office with a Nikon L110. And I recently picked up a small Panasonic ZR3 for my wife's purse.

Why 3 cameras?First off, I love photography and enjoy taking real pictures with a real camera. That's why I have a Nikon D90.

For the office we need a quality camera to take photos of products. It needed to be simple enough for my staff to use too without having a lot of extra bells and whistles. That's why we have the Nikon L110. And it does a great job. But it's a little bit large to be a true pocket camera.

But for a SMALL pocket sized camera, you can't do better than the Panasonic ZR3 IMHO. The images from this little are flat out amazing. The colors are exact, the images are crisp (they rival the best shots I can take with a digital SLR). The pictures it takes are surprisingly accurate from such a minimal camera as this.

So if you're in need of a small pocket sized point and shoot camera for taking before and after pictures you may want to take a look at the Panasonic ZR3. It's well built - very solid. The lens is a Leica lens. And the image processor is quite simply the best I've seen in this category. It would be a perfect camera for hauling onto job sites IMHO

Here's one of many excellent reviews for this camera...
