How to choose a camera for food photography
When you're shopping for a camera for food photography, you will not need all the fancy bells and whistles that most modern cameras come with. You don't have to be super-fast with your movements or worry about taking dozens of shots in a minute. However, you will definitely want to get a camera that has at least some basic capabilities. In this article, I'll discuss some basic things to keep in mind when you're looking for a camera for food photography.
A few years ago, the biggest camera for food photography was a full-frame camera. These are still around, but many amateurs tend to favor the crop and tilt options that come with a smaller sensor size. This means that you can move a shot around and make it appear as if it is taken from a specific location. You won't have as much flexibility when it comes to zooming or moving the camera fast, but these are still a good choice for most people.
If you are going to be using the camera for action oriented food photos, then you will definitely want to choose one with a higher continuous shooting rate of up to 10 frames per second. There are a number of great compact sized video camera options on the market today, including the D Endurance and the Fujifilm X10. The Fujifilm X10 has a nice continuous shooting rate of up to 10 frames per second, which is pretty impressive. The X10 also has a touch screen LCD, which allows you to easily take your images. The camera also has a good built-in Auto Focus feature and manual focusing.
One feature that is becoming increasingly popular in high-end digital cameras is a High Intensity Emissive Brightness mode. This enables the camera to create very bright, detailed images even in low light conditions. In order to achieve this, the camera will need to switch to a manual mode. However, if you prefer to automatically adjust the exposure based on the availability of light, then you should select the Continuous Shooting mode. In addition to high ISO speeds, the camera will also have a good night time shooting mode and an anti-shake feature.
A full-frame camera has many advantages over a point and shoot camera. For one thing, they have the most flexible lens available, with a large aperture that allows for greater depth of field. With a DSLR, you can change out lenses quickly and make adjustments in focusing without having to mess with the camera's memory card. Also, since the sensor is on the front of the camera, it is usually easier to compose shots. Finally, since the lens is more integrated, a point and shoot are more difficult to handle and transfer from film to digital.
The pixel size of your camera's sensor is also important. A point and shoot will generally be cheaper in the end because of the size of its sensor; however, if you need to take higher resolution photos, you may have to pay more money. It is best to compare cameras and read reviews for details on the pixel sizes of each camera's sensor. As a general rule, the pixel size of your camera's sensor should be six times smaller than the resolution of the camera's LCD screen; the lower the resolution, the higher the ISO speed you need to use to eliminate noise in your images.
