    The camera isn't as important as the light (actually, the camera isn't really important at all since as long as you have the level of control you need (which many point-and-shoot cameras do have) .... the photos are fairly similar.

    The real key to photography is light. That aside, I'm using a Nikon D200.

    Very nice! (Both the knife and the pictures)

    We're you using a shoot through umbrella? Only found one reflection that suggested this... ;)

    Hah! Yes, good catch. Funny part is, I can't find the hint in my own photos. Closest I've come is the reflection off the pivot screw in the 4th photo but that could just as easily have been a softbox. What was your hint?

    Anyway yes, Sunpak 383 at 1/2 power through a 36" white umbrella about 12" from the knife camera right. For one or two of the shots there's an additional Sunpak 383, bare at 1/16th power, directly above the knife about 18" up.

    I noticed this with my recent purchase of a BM 5300. The Emerson CQC7 I bought was much sharper out of the box.
