Thanks, RubyMu. DH and I are very pleased with this ring.
Looking at these pix this morning, I realize how much crisper they were before I resized them. I had to crop, resize, and resize again to get DT to accept them, and after all that, they look so-so. I'll try the link you suggested. The roxio software I'm using on my pc is ruining my good pix.
That's very similar to mine. Here's mine below. I'm glad you were inspired, gemologygal. Isn't it a neat little device? It's about as big as a pack of cigarettes, and the screen's big enough to really see what you took. Also, I love the way I can change the display of vertical pics just by moving the camera vertically or horizontally. Pretty sweet. Enjoy! And of course, post your pics of your sparklies asap!
WOW bcardellini!!!! Those digital close ups are really amazing! I just might have to look into getting that camera as well! I've always been a Sony Cybershot gal for small digital cameras, but your pics makes me want a bigger MP version now!
Ya know, on second thought, I would NOT recommend this camera.
The pictures are good, yes. But I am ruined for buying diamonds now. I'm looking for the engagement diamond and because of my camera I've convinced myself that I need a VS1 or VVS2. (I photoshopped the pictures, rollover with the mouse for the originals showing inclusions).
The camera is affordable ~$250? but the ensuing pickiness for clarity will cost you an arm and a leg!
