A quick look at the cameras ~
It's pretty clear that the only practical way to get successful intraoral images is with a digital SLR camera, using a quality macro lens and a ringflash. This combination provides maximum image quality (color & sharpness, depth-of-field, and so on) that is not obtainable with a "point & shoot" camera.
This is just a brief, quick overview. There's so much to talk about, and of course new models of digital SLR's come about regularly. Further posts will concentrate more deeply on particular items.

Over the course of future posts, look forward to discussions on many topics that involve us in dental photography: different kinds of digital cameras, camera settings, shade-matching, macro lenses, ringflashes, file formation, emailing images, computer & printing issues, and much more. I would also encourage you to submit your ideas for discussions as well.
Feel free to post your comments or images here, and you're always welcome to email me directly whenever you'd like: email@example.com
Many thanks, and happy shooting!
