Best Camera for Food Photography – What we use.

Professional equipment can be expensive. If you're anything like us, you'll always be on the lookout for a good deal. 

Although we are extremely happy with our current camera and lenses, we are always drooling over the things that we can't afford. In today's post I'm going to share with you the cameras and lenses that we do have in the hope of helping you make that all too tricky decision. I will save our camera wishlist for another post! Happy reading! 

Our Camera: Sony a5000


It took us a long time to find a camera that we were happy with. Most DSLRs on the market are bulky and most crucially...heavy. With multiple events in our calendar, carrying around heavy equipment is never on our agenda. The camera that we settled on is lightweight, compact, and super smart too. With it's compatibility with interchangeable lenses, the Sony a5000 has become our savour. It has great adaptability, multiple functions and it's flip up screen is also great if you're hoping to vlog. Not to mention it's sickeningly affordable price tag.

Our Lenses: 
The big investment: Sony FE 90MM F2.8 Macro G OSS


Whilst the standard lens that comes with our camera is great for everyday use, when we started our business full-time we realised the importance of a professional lens. You may gawk at the price tag of this batboy, but I can tell you that this can turn anything from boring to breathtaking. 



We LOVE Sony for creating this lens, (which can be found here) and can't speak more highly of the quality of the photographs. The only downfall has got to be it's size. You won't find us carrying this one around too often! Hence our more recent, compact purchase...

E 30mm F3.5 Macro

Our newest lens from Sony, the E 30mm F3.5 Macro provides an amazing quality and bokeh. 

We bought this lens for whilst on the go and to also help us with our video creation. The macro element provides great attention to detail and it has a great fixed zoom. 

Please note, if you're looking for everyday lenses, these macro options are not for you as they do not perform well when capturing fast movement or when looking to zoom.

The everyday lens:


For everyday pictures and videos, our favourite lens that we've purchased has got to be the E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS for it's versatility, adaptable zoom and quality. It's a slightly larger lens than the one that comes with our camera, but the difference is really noticeable. 



The video quality is also really good and the shutter speed response is impressive too. To view the spec of this lens, click here.

No, unfortunately we are not affiliated with Sony in any way, though one day I hope to be able to say that we are. I know many favour their competitive rival Cannon, and many bloggers these days are opting for the Olympus PEN generation, but from our experience Sony has done nothing but deliver. We are always incredibly happy with the quality of our images, and hope to keep expanding our lens and camera collection with Sony. I defy you to sway us into using anything else for the foreseeable future.
