I was concerned about image resolution with the iPhone since it was rated at 8 Megapixels and both my Sony and Canon are rated at over 20 Megapixels. But surprisingly, the resolution was not an issue."
"One of the neglected areas of genealogy is the preservation of historical, physical artifacts. Many of us have "heirlooms" handed down from our ancestors in the form of actual objects such as photos, letters, postcards, and a variety of handmade items. In addition to making a written record of our ancestors we need to preserve and share their physical legacy. The Shotbox.me is one of the very first enterprises to address this particular need and issue at a consumer level. Light boxes have always been the purview of professional, commercial photographers and there are few inroads into the consumer level of photography and previously none, to my knowledge, directed at genealogists. Shotbox.me will be at the upcoming RootsTech 2016 Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.
