Now, let’s test the performance of your camera. You have more than one just take the first shot with your older one and then take another shot with newer one.

You should not spend more than $20-30 USD for this equipment. Just search in Amazon or Alibaba and you will get a solution within this budget.
The sharp focus of the shot is determined by the width and depth of the area. Shutter speed plays an influential role while taking the shot. If a camera has a slow shutter, there is strong possibility of getting the image blurred. The solution of this kind of situation is ultimately a tripod.
4. White Background:
There are several solutions for white background. If you need to shot spontaneously I suggest you to get a white sweep from any nearby photography shop. If, in case, there is no photography store nearby, you may solve the problem just with a 32 x 40 sheet of pure white Mat Board. It should not cost more than $7.00 USD.
5. White Bounce Cards Made of Foam Core:
Then you have to collect any extra scraps of white foam core that is available at any photography store. It should be roughly same to the height of the product, and about 3x the width. Typically, a letter size should be fine. Then it has to be set so that it stand of its own. It will reflect the light back to the product.
Pick a table that will fit best with your tripod. A folding table will be more comfortable.
You may use tape to fix the board on the table securely. You can also use clams serve the purpose.
