Every now and then when we face issues with a part we're making, we need to convey this problem in an easily understandable manner to the customer. Often times pictures of problematic areas are the best way to communicate these difficulties, but the dinky camera we had before just wasn't cutting it in the take-good-pictures department. So I did a little shopping around, and found that the Nikon Coolpix P100 is a very good camera. It doesn't look the nicest, but its the best in the super zoom series available.

Anyways, I put together a simple light box, and snapped a few test shots. Oh, since we deal with a lot of prototype parts, I couldn't just grab any random part and start taking shots of it. So I had no choice but to grab a few of the mini Gundam models on my desk and shoot those instead. Really, my hands were tied. Nothing I could do about it.

And here's how I took these pictures:

Finally a slide show for good measure.

Yes I did work today too!

Haha, no no I didn't have any lamps upstairs in the office, but they've got a bunch downstairs where where they polish molds. Also the extremely bright lightbox in the middle of that picture throws the light balance in the picture waaay off, making the surroundings look really dark.
