My New Camera

My New Camera

I’ve been planning to buy a new camera for a few months now, in order to take better quality food photos. Although my Sony Ericsson K800i mobile camera phone with 3.2 megapixels has served me very well, as it’s discreet and takes great photos on the macro setting, I’ve decided it’s finally time to upgrade. It works fantastically if there is plenty of natural light available, but restaurants are often dimly lit. I briefly considered getting the new Sony Ericsson C905 mobile phone with 8.1 megapixels, but for the price I’d have to pay, I decided to buy a digital camera instead.

I did some research online after working out my requirements. The camera would have to be small, as I take a lot of photos in restaurants and would feel uncomfortable whipping out an SLR out of my bag. It would have to work well in low lighting situations, as I never use the flash on my phone, because it makes the food look terrible, and it disturbs fellow diners. I finally narrowed the options down to five:

In the UK, they range from about £190 to £300, the most expensive by far being the Canon Powershot SD950 IS Digital Elph. In the end, I chose what I know works well, the Sony Cybershot DSC-W300, as my current mobile phone and the one before it are both Sony Cybershot cameras, albeit with a difference of about 10 megapixels. I’m so looking forward to testing it out when it arrives! And since this is quite a purchase, I plan on putting a gps tracker on it, like the one you can find here www.amazon.com/Amcrest-LTE-GPS-Tracker-Geo-Fencing/dp/B07P87SZMJ so I wouldn’t lose it.

Food Photography Resources:

While browsing online, I came across some extremely useful and detailed food photography advice. Kitchen Wench has written many posts on basic tips for using point and shoot cameras, while Elise Bauer from Simply Recipes talks about how she takes her photos and lists some great resources. And I’ve just ordered a book called Digital Food Photography, recommended by photographer Christey over at Fotocuisine. Thank you to you all!

I hope I’ve made the right choice? I’d love to hear about what camera you use to take your photos with!
