Ok mate soon there is going to be a forum opened on WoM for just this sort of thing, we have discussed it and it seems to be generally accepted that this is going to be a big benefit to the site. For now though this is how I do mine. I use a standard compaq digi cam 6 megapixel. It has the obvious macro feature and also has a digital zoom. I never use the digital zoom feature the best zoom to have is optical. I also have a tripod this is essential for taking good photos as it gives you something firm to fix the camera too. Next up is the light source, there are many theories on this the general consensus is that three lights is best one from each side and one from above thus dissipating shadows, if you can arrange this set up and also do it through a light box then that is considered to be the best way. This is not always practical though. I don't have a light box and i only use one light. The light I use is a multi positional fluorescent lamp, the fluorescent tube gives a more even spread of light and reduces the shadows to an acceptable level. So that is the equipment. The set up first I have an A$ sheet of paper that has a blue to white fade printed on it, this I place on the surface propped up usually by a bottle of something like that so that you get a gentle curve in the paper as it goes from the horizontal to vertical. The mini is placed on the paper. Then I measure the distance from the mini to get the optimum distance for the macro feature to be most effective. This is stated in your manual for mine it is around 20 cm. I then set my camera up attached to the tripod at this distance. Then I place the light source immediately over the camera pointing at and slightly down towards the mini. There we are set and ready to shoot. I use the auto countdown feature on the cam to take the pics I usually use the 2 sec countdown, this gives me time to press the button and get clear and the cam to steady itself. If you have a remote button then that is the ideal way to shoot the pic and bingo there you go. Upload it onto your pc and then edit it in your imaging software.
the one I have I got from our Argos store but I know other people that use a similar device in needlework the problem with holding it is it has to be steady. So I think that the answer to your question is no.
