For the first I need to say straight away – I am not saying that compact camera or smart-phones, mobiles, Ipads are better then DSL cameras …but for general purpose and domestic use (read: small size files/photos) – hey yey! – this could be good enough what you need!
+ I am pretty fresh blogger and I am still learning, and searching beat and fast methods about it…but please read this post to the end and compare yourself the final results on picture!
I was just took some quick snapshots of products for further posts – with both: mobile Samsung S4 Active and Compact Camera Canon Powershoot C20 and at the and I grabbed Ipad Air… and I put all files next to each other to compare…it wasn’t big surprise to me but it could be surprice to some of you….
Pictures of the same product/the same angle and crop – photos looks almost the same ( only Ipad colours stand out just a little a bit, compact and mobile colours are the same as real one)!!! It’s looks a like my mobile produce nice quality for average (hand size) products, comparable for my compact D20. However I am surprised little a bit that for taking photos of much smaller products – my mobile works even better than Canon D20 – as my compact camera can’t make so big close up…
If more I work & get used to with my new light – I getting happy more than ever!
Note -I own DSLR but the reason that I am not using DSLR for close-ups + macro lens is that I own only 180mm sigma lens –> this lens require about 1m length of distance from the object…
For small size pictures as are required to upload by social media, blogging and vlogging even mobile can work well – most important is light!
So… the KEY is only good quality light, and correct temperature of the light…(note – best day light temperature is about 5000k-5500k; the same light temperature is used in studios during photoshoots). More about my new ring light you can read in this post.
By the way – on photo you can see my new treasure, something that you may never get in UK… – and I have to admit that still didn’t tried yet…
It’s a hand cream with HYALURONIC ACID ! It’s totally new product from Prestige Cosmetics…(available on-line only in this store, or it’s cold be limited line, it’s very hard to find, it’s not even on their website )
