Buying Guide

  • Sensor’s Size

The primary thing to think about before opting for a camera is the size of its Sensor. There are versions of sensors based on their size, i.e., a crop sensor and a full-frame sensor.

The cropped sensor captures sharp pictures with enhanced focal length, but the only problem is that the camera and lenses will behave differently.

Moreover, crop sensors aren’t the best choice when it comes to capturing pictures in dim light. Full-frame sensors are much more efficient in this regard.

But if you seek something affordable in sensors, then crop sensors are the best. This is because they provide satisfactory image quality and are pretty economical.

  • Megapixels

For professional food bloggers, considering the number of megapixels in a camera is very important. Higher the number of megapixels, the better the quality of the printed image will be.

  • File Size

Another point to decide is whether you want to work on JPEG files or RAW files. JPEG is a basic form and is much suitable for beginners. It is easy to operate and has a smaller file size as compared to RAW.

However, RAW  is bigger in file size and is primarily for professionals. It has a better color gamut and has a broad dynamic range.

Furthermore, RAW files can endure heavy editing and won’t lose any data though RAW-supported cameras are pricier.

  • Focus Points

Professional photographers rely on manual focusing most of the time. But it is what they are professional at, and not every beginner can do that. Thus most rely on ‘autofocusing.’

Thus, while seeking an ideal camera for food photography, try to opt for the one that has a greater number of focus points. Because the greater their number is, the better you will be able to capture even the tiniest details.

  • ISO Level

ISO levels of a camera are important to consider while buying a camera because not all the time would you be relying on a tripod to capture images. In addition, there can be discrete noise levels in your surroundings.

Especially as a food blogger, if you are recording videos in a food market, tackling background noise is utterly important.

And this is where the ISO level steps in. It reduces all the shaking and noise levels and improves the quality of images and videos.

  • Lenses

Ensuring a good quality of lenses is undoubtedly very important while purchasing a camera. Also, make sure that the camera does not have fixed lenses; otherwise, you will not be able to make a lens upgrade to your camera.

Verdict

If your budget permits, invest in a full-frame camera if you wish to photograph food professionally. If you can’t afford a new device, acquire a used one from a trustworthy vendor.
