The Best Cameras for Product Photography
Every person has an artist within and the way to bring this out is to spend some time doing some creative work. Photography is easy because all the equipment is available in a pre-arranged fashion. It is difficult because you need to have an eye for it. Colour, light, and depth of the picture matter as much as the choice of the camera,if you need good clear pictures.
Check the features
When you choose your DSLR camera, check the manual mode setting, the video setting, and the mount. These things help you gain full control of the camera. The best cameras available today are these:
Canon EOS 6D (Rs 1,23,400)
This is an entry-level camera with full frame facility. It has a 20 MP sensor and Wi-Fi. You can connect to the camera through the smartphone. This way you can send pictures direct to your computer.
Sony ALPHA SLT-A99V (Rs 1,73,858)
Sony is catching up fast with Nikon and Canon. The sensor is 24 Megapixel and the camera is full-frame. It has good video capabilities with Full-HD 60p/50p recording but there are only a few lenses at the moment. It has dual AF system (19 +102 points).
Sony ALPHA SLT-A65 (Rs 46,800)
This model resembles the others in the series but has a lower price. It has a 24 MP sensor but the number of autofocus points is lesser. This is why it has a lower price.
Nikon D800 (Rs 1,76,500)
This is the best camera as far as we compare resolution. It offers full-frame 36 MP resolution. It has a fantastic 51 point autofocus system. It shoots great full-HD 1080p video pictures. The sensitivity range of the camera is ISO 100 to 6400.
Tips for a good photograph
The best way to take photographs of an object, or in this case, a product is by using a tripod. This eliminates the shake. You must set the timer and adjust the light so that the product does not have any shadows. Do not touch the camera after you have pressed the shutter button. Choose a macro lens with focal length in the range 50-200mm. You could also use a zoom lens that has a macro setting. The best choice is a 50-60mm lens. You must go close to the subject so the use of extension tubes is better. A close-up dioptre helps to get better images when you do not have any macro lenses.
