One of the first things you should know about jewelry product photography is that you should use a tripod. Although a flimsy tripod is not ideal, it is better than none at all. The best way to achieve this is to experiment with different lighting conditions. Long earrings, for instance, are notoriously hard to photograph, while stud earrings are easy to handle. Then, photograph each pair separately to ensure the perfect lighting conditions.
Canon EOS R6. The Canon EOS R6 is the industry standard, as it shoots 20.1-megapixel stills with great detail. It’s compatible with virtually every editing program and shooting accessory. The RAW files it produces are easy to edit and have class-leading colors. The Panasonic LUMIX S5 has a slightly slower AF, but its video camera makes up for it.
Sony a7 III. The Sony a7 III has a 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor and superb video and image quality. It’s also the lightest full-frame mirrorless camera, weighing just over a pound. The camera also has a tilting touchscreen and can record videos in 4K resolution. It’s not waterproof, but it’s still a good choice if you’re planning to shoot a lot of jewelry.
Sony Alpha a7 iii. If you’re just starting out, this camera is the best choice for you. Its touchscreen is great for focusing and is virtually indistinguishable from the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. It also comes with Snapbridge, allowing the camera to be associated with a smart gadget. The Sony Alpha a7 iii can also capture stunning photos of jewelry, so it’s worth considering.
