      We are planning a community-wide gathering in which residents will bring memorabilia and accompanying stories. We plan to take digital photographs of the items (or scan them) and record the stories. The items will go home with the participants. Our society is planning to buy a laptop with an internal camera which will be utilized for the photographs. I have heard conflicting opinions as to the wisdom of this decision. The society insists the laptop will take better photographs than a digital camera. My go-to tech person says the digital camera is a wiser choice. Does anyone have experience with a good laptop with the capability to take photographs as good as a digital camera? What brand would that be?

      I don’t know the camera specifics of the laptop you are considering, but it is much easier to use a digital camera, or an iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch (yep, I’m a Mac person) because they are easier to move around. You don’t want to always be lifting and shifting the laptop.  Bonus, these options do let you record video and sound as well, just like the laptop. The plus for a laptop is probably the larger memory.
