What kind of photography equipment do you use to create images your eBay items for sale?
A Point & Shoot Camera? A Digital SLR? Film?
Do you have a dedicated photo area set up to make the images of the items you earn your living from selling online? Do you skimp on photography because it is to hard to learn how to make a good photograph?
What is the difference between an average photo from an inexpensive digital camera and a photo like this?
Maybe a lot, if you are the buyer, maybe even more if your the seller… IF want to make more money on your listings!

Do we need all of this equipment (and more) to make a simple eBay photo? – The answer may be no… Do we take better and more accurate photographs because of this equipment and software? I think we can say yes.
Do you need all of this equipment all at once? No, in fact if you do not intend on taking a great deal of product photos for your business you do not need all of these items at all. You could accomplish your photo goals with much less…
