What is the best lens/technique for shooting products
Dec 12, 2012

I've been shooting new products that come off our assembly line for years for promotional purposes both in web and print. I've been using a high end point and shoot and cleaning the images up as best as I can using Photoshop. The results are acceptable, but not even close to professional.

I want to take the photo quality to the next level using my Canon EOS 400D (50mm lens and a generic 18-130), but I can never get enough of the product in focus due to the high depth of field  in the Canon, even with the aperture set to 22.

My question is can I get the all in focus / high resolution results with this camera and lens combo or will I need to invest in another lens to get the job done? and if I do have what it takes, what is the best technique for this type of photography?

ANSWER:
Canon EOS 400D (EOS Digital Rebel XTi / EOS Kiss Digital X)
