Finest professional cameras for photographing models
Professional photography differs from amateur photography in one major way. The professional takes care of the photograph from several angles while the amateur lacks this experience. The resultant photograph shows how well focused the subject is and adds clarity to the picture. But, the thing that matters most is the camera and you must spend time checking the details before choosing one.
The cameras by the leading brands such as Nikon and Canon will always be good enough. Each of them is an improvement on the previous model the company had before. So, the latest cameras will be the best in their product range. Here is the pick of the best cameras available in the market now.

- Give life to the arms
- Mind your ears
- Turn the shoulders
- Give space at your waist
- Avoid the whites of the eye
Rent your camera
That said let us get back to the camera. It is pricey but it delivers. Those who cannot afford the high price can rent the camera. If you are from Bangalore or Goa, you have the best option in the WildClickz photography equipment rental shop. They offer all the top cameras and lenses. You can get DSLR cameras, Cine cameras, and video cameras. To give you an idea of the price, their Canon EOS 5D Mark III costs Rs 1800 per day (with weekly rental going to Rs 1,550) and their Canon EF 100-400mm f-4.5-5.6L IS USM available for Rs 800 (weekly Rs 680).
This means you can wrap up a wedding photography stint with top-end cameras and lenses for a couple of thousand rupees. Otherwise, you need to spend hundreds of thousands of rupees if you were to buy the camera and lens. They also offer support equipment such as lighting, batteries, memory card, and more.
If you have an event in Bangalore or Goa, then you may rent the equipment from WildClickz. You do not need your own equipment, which is a big boon for beginners and amateur photographers.
