What is the best digital camera for taking pictures indoors, I want to take photos of large objects like wardrobes, to sell on the internet and cannot find, any thing that will take a bright clear shot,all the photos are too dark, I always end up having to take a photo out side or enhancing the picture on my pc.

Most digital camera's will do what you want. the area you will have to look into is lighting. have you considered buying a builders Halogen lamp, the type that stands on a tripod, you can buy these for around £25 click here

Any camera with 1.3 megapixels should be good. I have a 2.00 megapixel camera and I get good pictures. the main thing is don't get too close and switch off the automatic flash. if it is still too dark use a programme like paint shop pro (or others) and adjust it.

ive just got a cheap jenoptic jdc2.1 for 80 [pounds from asda and im really suprised how clear the images are especially inside and the best thing is at asda you get at least 2 yrs guarentee and they always honour thier word

Try Canon A70. 3.2Meg pixels, but look at extra lighting or slave flash

If you are only photographing items of the size of wardrobes and similar furniture items, then a straightforward 2MP digital camera, perhaps with a 3x zoom, and a good in-built flash will be perfectly sufficient.

You will have to ensure that you don't face the item being photographed head-on, otherwise the shiny surface will be reflected in the image.

Best thing is to go to somewhere like Jessops and try out the various models - it will be easy to work out which camera is most suitable, especially with regard to flash output.

Lead's suggestion was that daft - there are some of the more expensive digital cameras from top brand names that will use their own film SLR lenses and equipment - in that case all you would need is the digital camera body version.

... that should read "wasn't that daft"...:-)
