*As recommended by a professional jewellery photographer*
Choosing professional camera equipment for a jewellery business can be extremely challenging. If you're currently on a search for that one best jewellery photography camera to start your content creation journey with, hold still. I got you sorted.
No matter if you're a small business planning to take pictures of your jewellery yourself or if you're a 7-figure brand looking for equipment for your in-house photographer... You need to make sure to invest into something that's just perfectly right for jewellery photography.
But there is just so much to choose from! Canon or Sony? Mirrorless or DSLR? Is sensor resolution something I should be looking at? So many questions!
Provided you have a hands-on approach, endless desire to learn and a lot of time on your hands, let me tell you about one camera you MUST buy if outsourcing professional jewellery photographer is simply not an option.
Don't ask questions. Just buy it.
Canon 5d Mark 4
Canon 5d mark 4 is something I started my jewellery photography journey with. I honestly I can't see myself changing camera gear to anything else anytime soon.
Lenses I use with it are:
Canon EF 24-105mm
24-105mm is so versatile! I use it for both photographing jewellery on models and in flatlay product setups when more than one pieces of jewellery are involved.
Canon EF 100mm
I've had this 100mm lens for over 8 years now and I cannot imagine my life without it. This is THE ONE tool you must have for shooting jewellery if you have a canon camera. It's perfect for taking detailed high quality shots of any and every piece of jewellery. Just a perfect lens for jewellery photography.
It's not a secret, I have a jewellery photography course launching before the new year, and if taking professional photos of jewellery has been your life-long dream, take the first step and gear up :)
