Im wondering how many megapixels your camera is!?!?!?! And can you get a clear pic of like a test on it??
Ive been trying to take a pic of my OPK. I have a 12 megapixel camera. It takes AWESOME pics of everything else, but I swear I cant get barely anything to show up when im taking a pic of the test. Ugh. I get a better pic on my 2mp camera on my phone! lol
I have both a 5D mark II (21 MP) DSLR and a 30D (8 MP) DSLR. Both are great cameras and I can get clear pics of a test. It doesn't however have anything to do with MP. To get a clear shot of a test you would just need a camera that can focus on the test at a close enough distance to see it clearly, and to have proper lighting to get it bright enough and in good enough focus (more light allows for a faster shutter speed which is needed for focus).
I have a Canon EOS 10.1 MP and an old Fuji 4 MP camera. Both take equally good pictures. The number of pixels really has more to do with how large of a print size you can get out of the picture than focus. The larger the pixels, the larger a print because you have more pixels per inch....meaning better quality/clarity at larger sizes.
If you are having trouble taking pics of your tests...1st make sure you have enough light. Then, make sure you are indeed focusing on the test. (Sometimes the camera can get confused.) Finally, it may help to use the macro mode on your camera (supposing it has one. Usually noted with a flower.) You will be able to get closer to focus on the object in this mode. Most of the OPK/HPT focus issues are due to the fact that you have the camera too close to the object so it is never able to acheive focus.
