You can usually get good full coin pics from dslr cameras, but for close-ups you may have to get a macro lens. Some newer cameras have auto-focus and zoom lenses that do not allow the attachment of macro lenses and the macro "settings" built in don't get close enough for clear photos. Consult your instruction manual or look it up on line to see if your camera has these capabilities.
A note on lighting coins for photos...2 small lamps at 10 and 2 o'clock, respectively, will illuminate very well for most photos, and to reduce glare and reflection, diffusing is needed. The wattage doesn't need to be more than about 40 watts for each lamp.
Research all of this before you buy anything new...hope this helps...Spark
Now that's a lot of mountain
