Top 6 cameras for macro photography
Thu, 12/13/2012 - 16:52 (updated 6 years ago)

You may have come across the term macro photography and though this type of photography can be understood in a variety of ways, the most common notion associated with it is shooting close-up images of different objects. In this type of shooting, you can also expect to get the best amount of detail of the object in focus and a shallow depth of field of the background that can make some truly artistic shots. Shallow depth of field is not the only advantage of macro shots, in this mode, you will also find a lot of detail in the image which is basically the essence of any photograph.

Aperture is important for good macro shots and is denoted by F-stops that can be also categorised as focal ratio or F-number. For macro shots, most compact cameras come with a dedicated macro mode in which, the aperture value found on them is usually F/ 3.2. However, to achieve a better macro shot, you would require a camera with a wide aperture value of say F/ 3.0 or wider.Most point and shoot cameras with a wider aperture value are priced a lot more in comparison to standard digital compact cameras and allows you to shoot objects as close as up to 2cm. This close distance is essential for macro photography.

While DSLRs are the best option for macro photography, here’s a round-up of point and shoots that come very close to a DSLR in terms of quality and accuracy.
