    I use a 3mp digitad camera, with a halogen table lamp for lighting, but ive found that a LOT of trial and error is involved in taking photos of minitures.

    Well myself, one of my many... many hobbies is photography, I use only 35mm but in your case since you don't have a scanner and probably won't take enough photos of your minis to make a quality scanner worthwhile I'd suggest getting a digital camera that has a tripod mount and at least a 10x optical zoom, for close up work like this, a tripod is necessary since most people can't hold a camera steady enough to get a sharp image, also ensure that your camera has a delayed photo option, so you can push the button and allow the camera to stabilize before it takes the photo.

    Select a tripod that is sturdy, expect to pay at least $75 for a quality tripod that's going to last several years. I'd also suggest one that has 2 bubble center thingamajigs, I really can't remember the name of it... but I'm sure you get the idea, just to ensure that it is at the proper angle.
