When I was in Florida in Nov, I gave my daughter one of my cameras, so I needed to replace it. I bought a SONY DSC-H20B and this is a test shot. I only paid $220.00 for it!!!
It looks pretty good to me, so whadda ya think??????

Unable to determine for sure.
Please send me the subject of the photo and I'll compare it to what I see on the screen and get back to you. :p
And yeah, it looks good.

They look great John, but I can't remember seeing a bad picture of yours, so it's hard to tell... :)

Beautiful photos really, of beautiful pistols.Exactly, that's the problem - John, why don't you try taking a couple of pictures of something kinda ugly and badly-lit, so we get a better idea! :D

Ex sub sailor here- presently a photographer- how about looking at the top horizontal line of both those fine pieces of American engineering- they look a little bowed-if you agree to that concept-next time make sure you get farther away fron your subject and have the lens set on something above 50mm, most product photography, especially small items up to cars and trucks are shot with telephoto lens/or settings. You can still get the closeness with the distance and the lens setting. This picture bowing of subject comes from having the lens set on someting below a 50mm and even at 50mm you might get slight bowing. If this has been discussed somewhere else- just cuss me out but it is John's fault for showing those pictures and me looking.

Seabyrd is correct. It called barrel distortion. Most of the lesser priced cameras have it. Trying to eliminate it, one can spend thousands of dollars on a wide angle lens. I shoot architecture for a living, so I know all about this. Nobody wants pictures of their buildings with the roof looking like it is bowing ; )
That being said, I think it's a nice pic of a very cool gun.
