Pasta with Forest Mushrooms and Zucchini; I need Camera Advice…. Please? — 9 Comments

  1. I have a Canon Rebel, which I love, and would upgrade to the newest Rebel which is supposed to be amazing. Invest in a couple of good lenses (a 50mm f1.4, if you can, and a 60mm or 100mm macro), and you will have plenty of camera power for food photography. (PS — I downsized from a Nikon and have never regretted the switch to Canon.)

  2. I love my Nikon D70. I bought it off my daughter when she upgraded. A must is a good zoom lens to catch every luscious drip of caramel and waft of steam.

  3. This looks fabulously hearty, I love adding zucchini to my pasta. Thanks for sharing this with Presto Pasta Nights this week.

  4. I recently got a Nikon D5000 and am happy with it so far. I have two lenses, but have not yet used one. I guess I don’t have enough experience to actually recommend it, but if you have a specific question regarding it, I’ll be happy to answer. There are a lot of options and I am still at the point where I often forget one or the other. If I am in a rush, I choose the “food” preset option. The images on my 3 most recent posts were taken with it.

  5. MMMMMMMM,…I love your pasta dish!! It has everything in it that I adore,…
    I can’t give you camera advise,..because I don’t have the right camera nor a lot of experience,..

  6. Thanks, Lydia, you’re the 2nd to endorse the Canon over the Nikon, and thanks for the lens tips.
    Lynn, I think it’s going to be between Canon and Nikon… thanks for the lens tip, also ;-))
    Thanks, Sara.
    Simona, it was the Nikon 5000 that I was checking out… It’s going to be a tough decision.
    Sophie, thanks…. Pasta is always good, isn’t it?

  7. I got me the Nikon D5000 last week and am sooo happy so far. It’s great. Will get me a good macro lens soon to get even more great food pics. Love the food preset of the Nikon. I was thinking of getting a Canon too so it was a tough decision but the Nikon won.

  8. Astrid – it has a FOOD PRESET????? How did I miss that?
    Food Hunter, I love it, too…. But the season is over now…. sigh!
