General recommendations and tips for good quality Image: 
1. Resolution of 2048x1536 - 3 Megapixel or more and frame rate of 30 fps (frame per second) or more

2. Canon Powershot 600 Digital Camera is good option for teledermatology

Use auto-focus as often as possible, use manual controls only if you are well versed with them

Select the 'macro' mode for close-up shots ( What is macromode- macro photography can give stunning detail to the close-up images of skin lesions. Most digital compacts offer macro shots from distances of 2 cm to 5 cm without any lens attachment. To put it simply, these cameras can shoot images at distances of as close as 2 to 5 cm and the image projected on the digital sensor is close to the same size as the subject itself. The universal symbol for the
macro mode is a flower

Use flash as often as possible when the available ligting is poor, but avoid getting too close to the lesion as the over exposure may wipe out the details

For very close shots oblique views may be preferred

Try to add some shots of areas you expect to be involved in some of your differential diagnoses, but are apparently free of involvement in the particular case (eg. nails in psoriasis)

Eliminate distractions from the background. Try taking all photographs with a plain non- reflective blue or green background.

For all lesions make it a point to take at least 2 shots from each point of focus. Minimal blurring may not be obvious in the LCD screen and may be noticeable only after the images are viewed on the monitor. It is always better to have an extra copy from every focus point so that the best image can be selected.

Always try to capture distinctive elements like typical representative lesions, particular configuration or distribution patterns.

For generalised lesions take shots from at least three ranges:
1. A complete vertical view of the patient showing the extent and distribution of the rash

2. A medium distance shot showing the arrangement and configuration of the rash.

3. A close up view highlighting a representative lesion (using macro mode explained above)

For localised lesions take shots from at least two points:
1. A medium view showing the rash /lesion with respect to location and configuration (always include a recognizable body landmark so that the location is obvious. eg. For lesions on the abdomen include the umbilicus in the medium distance shot)

2. A close up view of the representative lesion

For isolated lesions it is also advisable to include a discernible landmark in one of the shots. For the close up shots use a measuring tape in the frame to demonstrate the size of the lesion. It would be advisable to take the close up shots from more than one angle and include oblique shots. Shots with and without flash may be taken and the best shot selected for storage.

Children and infants
While photographing very young children and infants make sure that the subject is comfortable and not anxious. Children tend to be fidgety and and getting blurred images because of the movement is a common problem. A small toy or a pen would come in handy, though this should not be included in the frame. If your camera has an option of adjusting shutter speeds a fast shutter speed would be useful in shooting photographs of children. Also use the flash as often as possible. Avoid pointing the flash directly into the eyes, especially in the case of infants.
