best camera & lens for shooting jewellery?
I am looking for a good DSRL camera and lense to photograph jewellery.
Would you be able to recommend a camera and lense to shoot professional-quality images good enough for print publications? The camera would need to give images that can than be processed in photoshop as 16 bit RAW files at a resolution of 300 dpi.
I have already invested in a light tent and might be able to buy a second hand lighting kit.
Could you recommend a good lense to shoot jewellery varying from 10 cm in diameter to 120cm x 30 cm for the larges pieces on a mannequin?
As the camera will only be used for the sole purpose of shooting jewellery it would not need any additional frills such as video.
At the most I could afford £1500 but if at all possible under £1000 would be less painful.
many thanks for any advice you may have,
