I’m new here and I hope that this is the correct forum to post on.
I would really like your help please to make a decision regarding the purchase of a Canon DSLR for Professional Food and Product photography.
With limited funds and just starting out, I thought of two choices which would suit my needs.
The most financially sensible for myself would be the 70D with a couple of decent EF lenses which would suit Product and Food photography. Starting with a 50mm lens and/or the Canon EF 35mm f/2 and the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8, (depending upon my needs) .
The other choice is the 6D which obviously has the advantage of being Full frame with better IQ. Within my budget I would have the same lens choices, but I would be at my uppermost limit.
For me personally, the tilt swivel touchscreen of the 70D, is easier for me to use than a fixed screen as I have an arthritic condition, but considering I plan to shoot tethered into a laptop with the EOS Utility software, it is not essential.
The 70D also has a better sync speed 1/1250th of a second as a opposed to the 6D 1/180th, which is no deal breaker in the Studio, but it may be useful at some point.
From other forums I have discussed on, and listening to a Pro on an online course, I have been made aware that when you are starting Professional Product and Food photography for small companies at least, the choice of camera is not so important to the client, (decent APS-C to Professional Full Frame) but rather the quality of your work. i.e lighting, etc.
Any money I can make with the 70D can be re-invested into a Full Frame body at a later date, maybe at a time when Canon goes touchscreen on it’s Full Frames, (or not). Or would it make better sense to spend the extra approx £500 and start out a potential business with the Full frame advantages of the 6D?
Any help or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
