Default Quick help needed for pricing

A local funeral home (southern New England smallish town), contacted me because they wanted to use me to do photos for their new websites -- based on a display I have in an empty store front window on Main St. When I met with them, they said they also wanted pictures of their renovated interior for the website's virtual tour. Instead of licensing those images, though, they want the copyright.

I told them that everything I have ever read says a photographer should never give up the copyright. In this case, on the surface of things, it seems harmless enough. But I have to wonder at the same time: what else could they possibly do with these photos that an exclusive rights agreement would not cover?

The big question is how to price it if giving them the copyright. A total of no more than 5 images at are stake. What happens to the out takes in this case?

What am I missing here

I don't see an issue giving up rights to the interior shot. If it was a chain of funeral homes maybe, but a one-of wouldn't bug me. I'd pick the best interior shot from a set (if you do from each angle or something) and give them that one to "sell". I would keep the outtakes....
