Guide to Buying a Smartphone for Product Photography


When it comes to product photography, choosing the right equipment is rule 101. And choosing the right camera is often one of the best places to get started. Buying a professional camera might not be an option, but everyone has access to a smartphone! So here’s a quick visual guide to buying a smartphone for product photography.

Of all the modern features in a smartphone, the one component constantly evolving is the camera. Primarily thanks to the fact that we’re living in a time where Instagram is king, where endless selfies require an excellent camera. It all started with the humble Nokia 0.11MP. For those who can’t remember, the photos ended up being very fuzzy with no pixel stabilization and lots of noise.

Things have since evolved, and today we’re surrounded by endless smartphone options. Having a higher megapixel count is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to choosing the right smartphone for productphotograhy. With features like Dual Lens, Superior Aperture, and Low-Light Photography, you can capture stunning photos.
