As for digital cameras you dont need a 8 megapixel
camera you can get by with a 3.2 megapixel but i
prefer at least a 4.0 or 4.1 . I my self have a 5.0
megapixel Kodak which i find very easy to use and it
takes some awesome pics now adays kodak has gone to
all glass lenses and they are the German type which by
far are the best for cameras and other optical
products. i am going to list a few cameras that i have
found by talking with ppl and reading reviews to be
perfect for investigations.
