Wow those are amazing pics dude. That must be a nice camera.

I don't think I've ever seen close ups of a die like that before.

Also, that may be pure gold but its all soooo tiny... even if you had 1000 of those CPUs around it'd probably take you a month to accumulate even a quarter of an ounce of gold stripped out of them.

I could be wrong though.

It's amazing that his camera is 5.0MP and mine is 8.1MP and it doesn't take them that good .

I just cracked my K6, got to the die, the bashed it with a hammer and it broke like glass (good thing I put it in a bag). Do you think the DX2 is like that chip that raiden cracked?

Yeah, the SX looked very similar to Raiden's. The DX2 probably doesn't look any different inside.

Kodak EasyShare v550 with a Schneider-KREUZNACH lense. (36-108mm)

I've dropped it 10 times. I've lost it in the snow twice and dug it up. It has been to the beach and gotten sand in it. It's a fricken zombie.

Edit: processor jewelry http://www.electronetwork.org/assemb...2/pentium2.htm

Why do your pictures look a lot better and I got a Sony Cybershot DSC-W90 8.1MP with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 35-105mm lens.

Try taking shots in some close-up mode.

I'm sure there's some kind of manual settings that you could make better closeup shots with...

Edit: Hold on let me try my D80 and see how good of a shot I can get.

Edit: This is what I get


I'm using this lens:

Here's my bird:

That Nikon is a professional camera, I got a digicam, lol.

EDIT: This looks pretty good. I like the dark color that it has.

My dad has about 5 lenses for the Nikon.
One of them is a closeup lens but I don't know which one....
