Thank you for all who responded to my mail on what camera they are using for their FOOD blog… haha, i am considering to get a new camera albeit not in a rush to get it. Based on 163 who responded. 163! i had gone through the list roughly and below are few camera which i consider to buy, firstly i filtered out food blogs of photos which i like, from there, crossing out all the camera which is more than 500g, seriously even 300g is quite heavy, my current Optio weight only 98g.

In no particular order:
1. Phnomenon: food in Cambodia, using Olympus C-740UZ(weight 295g, ISO up to 400)
2. A Southern Grace, using Olympus Stylus 830(weight 125g, ISO up to1600)
3. Farmgirl Fare, using Canon Powershot A630(weight 235g, ISO up to 800)
4. Flour Arrangement, using Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28K(weight 372g, ISO up to 5400)
5. Sounding My Barbaric Gulp, using Canon PowerShot A620(weight 285g, ISO up to 400)
A lot of the local Malaysia food blog do take good photos too, but almost all of these use DSLR which is too heavy for me to carry around.
Some advices given by food bloggers: get camera with higher ISO(to take good food photos for reason unknown to me), tripod, cardboard to reflect light, don’t use flash(didn’t know that, no wonder my photo looks so harsh and washed out)
Many of them recommend Panasonic Lumix which is more expensive, and more than 50% are using Canon. But i felt like i am leaning more towards Olympus Stylus 830, which is small and the photos do look quite DSLR, excuse me a newbie in photography, but the photo in A Southern Grace does looks like it has depth, not a flat picture.
Do leave your comments here, quite interesting to discuss camera choices among food bloggers… haha
