    i believe a dslr with kit lens 18-55 should be able to fulfill your requirements. you just need full body shots. probably might need a flash if the place you are shooting doesn't have sufficient light.

    Most important is good lighting. You DO NOT need a DSLR. A simple point-and-shoot, or even a cellphone cam, is enough. The most important thing is light; shooting next to a window on a bright sunny day is a good start.

    Why even bother with a DSLR? It's a blogshop, same as the other 10,000 out there. Considering the low resolution of the posts are, there's no need for high resolution shots and even a point and shoot or cellphone is enough.

    As long as you understand the use of light, even and iPhone will be decent.

    But of course, you can always use a studio. Most studio owners are able to help you with simple setups.

    Is the lens focused properly before u shutter? Or maybe because there's camera shake? There might not be ample light, which causes longer exposure time and the camera shake blurred the image

    Post your pic and the "others" pic. And how you feel it's "not as clear".

    Chances are you didn't finish focusing before shooting, or you just have poor lighting (see my first reply to you).

    TS, you haven't been helpful to yourself. We can't help you if you don't show us some sample pictures of your " not clear as compared to others" pictures.

    I guess for start up, they are afraid to post cos of alot of fear of : backlash, lack of surprise, piracy by others (of photo or ideas ) due to the fact that blogshops are quite similar and the barriers to entry is very low.

    For starters, I advise TS, take a photographic shoot of a friend, model or something , WITHOUT your actual product, and post here. We'll help guide you along, then u use the skills acquired to get your actual product shots.

    Good idea?
