Re: Recommended Cameras & Lens for Still-Life Photography

As noted by others, this is basically product photography. A tripod and basic lighting will be more important than the camera. Your budget also determines what direction you should go.

A Nikon D750 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens would be a great kit. Great full frame sensor and an excellent lens make for great image quality (IQ).

For a little less money, a D7200 (or even D5500) with the same 50mm lens. Crop sensor, but still excellent IQ.

Both of these would be great for general shooting as well, since you can add a 'kit' zoom lens for more versatility.

Bridge or superzoom cameras, like the Panasonic FZ1000 are a good budget option. Again, lighting is a high priority. If the product is well lit, then even small sensor cameras like this will have very good IQ.
