Good Question: Best Camera for Food Photography
I am so inspired by the absolutely stunning photos on other food blogs. For example, there’s 101 Cookbooks. Sure, Heidi Swanson is a professional, but I can’t help but drool at the photos on her site, thinking one day, maybe, just maybe, I can take photos that look that good.
The question is: what are the best digital cameras for shooting food? Often this means low-light situations, and also shooting very close to the subject. It seems most use digital SLRs and we’ve heard the Nikon D70, it’s cousin, the Nikon D50, and the Cannon EOS Digital Rebel XT are favored among the food and photo blogger glitterati.
Can anyone speak to the point-and-shoot category? Or are we crazy not to spring for an SLR?
