14-05-10, 08:55 PM
Hi from Cyprus, I need to buy a DSLR camera but I am not sure what to do. I need the camera mostly for taking pictures for library members card (Like passport photos).
I need to know what camera is better for this job. And what lens I need but mostly I need a camera which support real view in my PC. I need to have the camera connected to my PC (with software) so when I take the picture (if possible take more than one snapshoot) i need to save this picture with a name I want (F.E the student identity card must be the name of this photo) and then I am going to save it in a folder in the PC.

with both Canon and Nikon there are models that can do that , just consult a big photostore and explain what you want , for passport photo's you do not need the most advanced camera and lens .

you can alos consult canon and nikon for a list of models that work with the pc

Incidentally, if you're creating passport photos, we wrote this article a while ago about how to make your own passport photos that you might find useful. It's focused on UK passport regulations, but the principles might be useful to you.
