    Mine are sooo blurry...I have to use a digital camera, because I don't have a scanner. No matter how many pix I take, they're still blurry. Any ideas for sharper photos?

    Do they look okay on the screen/viewfinder? If so, you should look into a tripod. Nothing fancy. I think mine cost me about $25 at Radio Shack. The heads of all tripods are universal so they should all fit any camera (but take your camera and try it just in case).

    If they are still blurry, use the timer function on your camera. Some of the photos I take have 3-4 second long exposures, and no matter how steady your hand is, you can't hold it steady enough.

    If the photo is not clear on the screen/viewfinder, you may want to use the manual focus mode if your camera has one.

    Most digital cameras have a macro setting and will focus approximately 4" from your subject. You didn't say whether you were using this feature or not so it might be worth looking into if you weren't using it.

    I use a Sony Digital with 5 mega pixel. I use the Macro setting with a flash. I shoot in the sunlight with the sun shining at my back and into the marble. Sometimes you can go without the flash on some marbles.I use both for more detail. Then I crop the pictures in Photoshop.

    I use a Nikon Coolpix 4600 with 4 mega pixel. i use the macro and the flash plus a fluorescent light on the side of the marble about a foot away. i set it for fluorescent light. i cant take indoor photos with the incandescent setting. they come out blurry. this is a point & shoot camera thats good for beginners.
