It needs to be strictly point-n'click. The average skill level of the people who may use it is low. Hopefully the post-production would probably simpyl cropping the image to the correct size, but that's it. Is that feasible or over-optimistic?
What camara was that you used to take that picture?
cheers,
Joe.

Joe-

As I mentioned previously this curve of sorts, but was taken with a simple point and shoot camera: the Panasonic FX-500, using the camera's built-in flash unit. So yes, you would have a learning curve of sorts, but it is very do-able.

I'm a big fan of my Sigma DP2 (Ahh, and you already knew that ).

So I recomend it a lot. But more often then not, people want a camera with zoom, bells and whistles, etc, etc.

But with the exception of it's higher price, in this one case, the DP-2 is absolutely perfect for Joe.

It has much better IQ than any other P&S, and there's no need to take advantage of it's manual modes - Set it up on a tripod at a low ISO, a few practice shots to determine if he needs Exposure compensation, and it's all a piece of cake.
