The camera behind the food photos
Someone recently asked what kind of camera I have. Here is a link to the exact camera we have, from Amazon.com:
We've had it for over 4 years now (it was our first and only camera purchase, ever!) and have taken thousands of pictures with it.
I really like that it takes AA batteries (we re-charge ours) and I highly recommend PowerEx rechargeable batteries. They're not the cheapest, but they last a LONG time, and the charger we have for them will re-charge them in just a couple hours. The charger also has a "reconditioning" feature. I am still using a set of these batteries that we bought 4 years ago when we bought the camera!
Sometime I would like to learn more about our camera, since I know very little about photography and just use the auto settings. (I only recently discovered the button for super-macro photos... that's how I take most of my food photos now!) Since starting this website a couple years ago, I have slowly learned how to take beautiful photos of food. Some of my tips for food photography can be read here. :)
Joshua did all of the camera research and decided on that camera... this was way back before the idea of a food blog had ever entered my brain! This camera is still serving us well, so we haven't done any more research on cameras in recent years. :)
I'm sure that, depending on your price range, there are many great (better!) cameras on the market now. I'd love some reader input on cameras! What kind do you use? How much does it cost, and what do you love most about it?
If you have a blog that showcases your photography, leave a link in your comment! :)
