    Dave Myatt took those photos and he is far from an amateur. FYI

    (though he has mentioned he would like a camera that takes better micro-whatever pics.)

    Yes indeed, that custom painted Anakin display figure looked great and complimented Andy's wonderful HS, too bad SSC dropped the ball when it came to Paint Apps QC in China...

    let's hope there isn't another huge repaint thread for this figure.

    So has the final product-in-hand been better?
    Luke? Exactly as the pictures showed him. Possibly a little worse in the paint app department than the prototype.
    Anakin? Exactly as the pictures showed him, i.e. worse than the prototype.
    Kit? I don't own one.

    I'll bet he's said he wants a macro lens. It's for shooting closeups with the camera very close up to the subject, rather than "zooming" in with a telephoto. And it's all about getting a close image that isn't distorted and has plenty of detail.

    I was thinking about all the varying pictures we get links to, from toy shows around the world and shot by helpful, generous fans with digital cameras. One nice thing about digital photography is that even a low-end camera yields a pretty nice image. But getting too close, even when the lens will still focus, distorts. Not a lot of consumer cameras will let you get close, but that doesn't stop people from trying. And posting the results.

    This is exactly why the photos I've posted here are so limited. No macro capability. My digital has a fixed focus and my SLR film kit doesn't include a macro. Never needed one until I got into figures. I'd have to give up collecting to afford a digital pro-cam with interchangeable lens. Ain't gonna do it.
