Etsy Success: The Right Camera

Apr 7, 2010

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Jen Kiaba, a.k.a Jenkiabaphotography, is a self-proclaimed camera addict and seasoned photographer. I recently asked her a few questions to help you choose the right camera to shoot your product photos.

What kind of camera would you suggest for an Etsy seller who’s just starting out, and has a limited budget?
If you’re just starting out in the handmade world, probably the last thing you want to do is shell out a sizable pile of money for a camera. You know you need good photos, but will a more expensive camera really ensure that you get those great photos? The answer is “No.” Promise! To prove this, I decided to give myself a little challenge and put several cameras to the test. The goal was to see if I could get great photos no matter what. At the moment I own three digital cameras (yes, I know — it’s a sickness). These are all older cameras as well, to prove the point that you don’t have to run to the mall and buy the newest camera on the market. A gently used camera is a great tool to begin with to learn the basics of photography! The first contender is a mid-level professional camera: a Canon 30D, which retails for about $800 online. This is the camera that I shoot all of my professional gigs with at the moment. It’s a bit pricey for the Etsy seller just starting out, but I wanted to use this baby as a basis of comparison.

The second camera is a Fujifilm FinePix F30. With a little bit of online digging you can find this one for about $250. This is an amazing camera! If I could show up at all of my professional gigs with this camera and not get laughed out of town, I might try it. You have a full range of control with the exception of a true manual mode. There is a lot of bang for your buck here.

The last camera I tested today is a Nikon CoolPix L4. You can get this baby for $15 online! This camera came into my life when my sister moved to New York City and left it behind. Your exposure is fully automatic, but there seem to be all kinds of fun goodies to play with here.

Around 11 a.m. I found a window with some southern exposure, put a gauzy white sheet over the window to diffuse the light, and snapped some pictures of a vintage locket. I took two photos with each camera and then did a quick edit using Picnik.

The results:
The Fujifilm camera allowed me to get really close AND blur out my background by shooting in Aperture Priority mode and shooting with the widest aperture possible (in this case f2.8, which is really amazing!).

The Nikon doesn’t give you that kind of fine-tuned aperture control because the exposure is fully automatic; however you could try mimicking that lovely blurred effect with Picnik’s Focal Soften tool. The Macro setting also didn’t allow me to get quite as close as the Fuji camera did, but the results were still pretty great!

Click here to zoom in on the photo above.

Check out the image comparison and see for yourself. Which camera would you choose? The Fujifilm FinePix F30 is still my favorite, but I was pretty blown away by the Nikon CoolPix L4 as well. And for $15, you really can’t go wrong!

Are there features that are more important than others they should look for?
If you are in the market for a different model of camera, I would suggest looking for something with at least 4 megapixels (you don’t need much more for Etsy or for printing up promotional materials), the ability to change your white balance, a macro mode and preferably an aperture priority mode. If you would like to read a great comparison of the top camera models for 2009, check out this post by Engadget Labs: The best point-and-shoot camera for under $400.

What kind of lighting would you suggest?
Natural lighting will always be your best friend. With a thin white sheet (or even a thin white vinyl shower curtain from the dollar store) and a window, you are in business. If your camera allows you to change your white balance to incandescent, this will give you the opportunity to shoot indoors in the evening if you don’t get the opportunity to photograph using daylight. However you must make sure to have strong enough lights — inexpensive flood lamps work well in this case. Just make sure that they don’t get too close to anything flammable.
If you aren’t able to photograph during daylight hours, then it would also behoove you to look into making a photo lightbox. Here’s a blog post I did last year: How to Make a DIY $10 Macro Light Tent!

Do you have any online resources you would suggest to a new photographer?
I highly recommend Digital Photography Tips for Beginners from Digital-photography-school.com.This site offers a whole series of articles dedicated to walking a new photographer through the basics in layman’s language. The articles are so accessible and friendly, and I think new photographers will begin to enjoy taking photos for their shop once photography has been demystified for them!

    Wow, great article. I love my Canon XSi, and although it was pricey, the software that came with it is awesome. I can hook my camera up to my computer and see what my pictures will look like before I take them.

    I'm lucky to be able to use two different cameras for different purposes (close ups vs. wide shots) - one a close circle of friends pitched in for as a birthday gift a while back & one that belongs to my husband. Now, if I could only talk him into talking some photos for me! He's a phenomenal photographer!

    mazedasastoat said 7 years ago

    Thanks for making the point that huge numbers of pixels DON'T necessarily mean better photos unless you're likely to be printing them billboard size! I'd also add that a small tripod is very useful, especially for close up work or if you just naturally don't have a steady hand. You can pick one up very cheaply. Or if you photograph lots of things a similar size (such as jewelry) you can use wooden blocks or food cans to rest your elbows, hands or camera on to keep things from getting too blurred.

  • rockmenow

    rockmenow said 7 years ago

    not to sound like a b*tch: the 30D is ancient, released in feb. 2006. if you're willing to spend 800 dollars, both Canon, Nikon and Pentax have far superior stuff, that will last you for a lifetime. yes, megapixels don't matter, but the sensor does, and so does the way in which the information is stored. and no one wants to store information in technology that was developed in 2006 (believe me, my camera is even older).

  • 6catsart

    6catsart said 7 years ago

    Great article. I use a nine year old hp715 3.3 mp camera that my husband bought me for christmas and get OK shots with it. I loved how easy it was to use when I first got it. It does reasonable enough shots for the internet and etsy. Though my forty year old (film) 35mm Pentax is my favorite for great color and crisp images.

  • studio1950

    studio1950 said 7 years ago

    Natural light is very frustrating when you live in New England and it is cloudy much of the time. Another photographer also talked about playing with white balance, which I have started doing. Lighting is very tricky in general!

  • cindylouwho2

    cindylouwho2 said 7 years ago

    I have a Nikon CoolPix L4 - you CAN adjust the exposure under the shooting menu, but it is not as specific as other cameras. It goes from 0 to +3, & sometimes using the natural light from my window I might need something in between those settings. I also feel that since the macro setting doesn't allow you to get as close as some other cameras, I really need something more than a 4 megapixel, as my cropped shots can get grainy (especially given the lighting issues). BUT yes - you can use that camera for your Etsy pics. I've been fortunate to have a few of my things featured on Etsy, & have a lot of success with craftgawker too. So if your current camera isn't working, go spend the $15!

  • StarRedesigns

    StarRedesigns said 7 years ago

    I have a FujiFilm Finepix Z20 10MP camera and it is AMAZING for the price of $120-$150. I would definitely recommend it to anyone starting out with photography on a low budget. It has amazing capabilities and takes beautiful shots, not to mention it is compact and easily fits in a pocket or purse!

    This is great, and well timed for me! Thanks! I actually started a thread in the forums about this topic recently: http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6483919. I currently have a Nikon Coolpix that has a great macro function, but the image stability is not so grand. It is on its way out though, so I'm going to be the market to buy a new one soon.

    Love this comparison. My camera is a nothin'-fancy Pentax Optio M40, just a little point and shoot, and I love it. I can tuck it in my pocket when I'm out in the woods, and stick it on a tripod when I'm shooting product shots. Of course, this doesn't keep me from lusting after a big fancy camera... Someday.

    Thank you! I have a little Canon which I love and has so far been good for my purposes, but it's nice to know that I'm not totally screwing myself over if I don't purchase an amazing camera at this stage in my selling 'career.'

  • bethtastic

    bethtastic said 7 years ago

    There are great tips...I was using an Olympus point and shoot with a macro mode when I first started out. Though my pictures weren't nearly what I wanted, I was able to tweak them with photoshop. However, I finally broke down and found a Nikon D40 (it's a DSLR), (with some online digging and some serious searching I found it for $350, WITH a kit lens!) and I'm so in love with it. The one thing I can truly say makes the difference is the fact that it has no shutter lag, you can set the white balance, and you can shoot in automatic, aperture priority, shutter, or fully manual. It's simple to use. It takes amazing photos of every little nook and cranny of your item, which I think is so important. One thing to keep in mind: You have to weigh the options of buying something for $150 that might be "eh" to you, or spend a touch more (in my case $350) and make your life a load easier. I still use my little point and shoot for taking ttv (through the viewfinder) photos, but the Nikon D40 is so easy to use, and it also allows me to not spend ages futzing with photographs with p-shop. JewelsbyJaney--I don't think you're "screwing yourself over," but it sounds like you really want one! You don't have to go Canon (tends to run more expensive), but try B and H photo, they have a ton of refurbished Nikons that are a lot cheaper. :)

    Great links and tips! I really just don't like taking pictures in general. I use every excuse in the book not to take pictures and I find myself waiting until the very end of the day to take pictures in the hopes that I miss my chance and have to take them the next day! I use a Fujifilm FinePix model of some sort. Can't remember which one. I have been very lucky that my camera takes great pictures despite the fact I have no idea how to or no interest in taking photos of my work. My only problem with Fujifilm FinePix that I have is the instruction manual. It is totally confusing and does not help me much. The upload/download software is a bit annoying. But I tell you, the camera I have takes great pictures especially I happen to show a little more interest in the process. Thanks for the info!

    We have a Canon 50D and we love it! You can take some good photos with a point and shoot, but they are world's apart in quality. Lighting is one of the most important aspects and sometimes it can make a so-so subject matter look amazing. And playing around with the focus is also something that helps give your photos an artsy look!

    Great post, and I really welcome the idea, that SLR cameras not neccessarily will give you the best result. Though I do have an SLR camera (canon 20D) I think that any kind of photography - let it be product or photo journalism - is only 30% about the technical details. The rest (70%) is about approach, to be visually sensitive, so have an "eye". This - having "an eye" - can be also practiced, but takes a little longer than knowing how to use technically a camera.

    Jenkiabaphotography said 7 years ago

    Thanks everyone! So glad that this post is proving to be useful! Thanks Danielle for asking such great questions! <3 DixSterling - these images were not taken with a tripod. With a fast enough shutter speed you can eliminate a lot of the blur that one might get with shaky hands. rockmenow - even with technology developed in '06, with regular maintenance you can still have great results with an older camera. The same idea pertains to driving an older car. And in terms of storing data, it's very important to get into the habit of backing up your work. I back up three times - to my computer, to a cd and to an external hard drive.

    great post. i think that photography is one of the most important factors in selling on etsy, it is the first point of contact with potential customers, its for this reason i joined my local camera club its a great resource i have learned a few things that give great results like using an 18% grey card here is a link explaining about the grey card http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjrYVCwOOrA it helps give a well balnced image with true whites i also use a light tent but this is not as important. I think to improve ones photography the best option is just to observe what else is out there and then adapt it to suit your needs and your products needs, and also have fun!

    If you can, I highly recommend getting one that has customizable white balance - and use a Kodak gray card to set it in whatever light you have - it really makes it more workable for getting the actual color of your item in the photos!!! You can find really good used ones in good condition online, if you take the time to search. I admit I spent a bunch of time researching which camera to get, as I am used to using manual settings from my landscape photography days, and I spent a bunch of time searching for the camera I decided on - for a really good price I got a Canon Powershot with manual options including customizable white balance and both Aperture Priority and Shutter Speed Priority, so I can use it for a variety of things! They are out there if you do the research and take the time to search!

    Thank you for the tips and the links! I LOVE my OLD Canon Rebel SLR (film camera), but in recent years switched to a Minolta Digital camera (abt. $300). When it suddenly died, I had to get a quick replacement which turned out to be a Canon Powershot (store display) for about $70. I am quite pleased with the results I get, but my dream camera is a Canon EOS system.... someday.... :)

    I think that if you don't have a big budget, looking on craigslist for a gently used camera is a great option. I ended up purchasing a Canon Powershot SD790 IS Elph for about $120 (they're usually in the $200-$300 range) from a woman about a year ago, and it is a couple of years old, but it still works like a charm! It does everything I need, and is also cute and little. Go craigslist!

    A camera can be a huge investment, but does not have to be! With digital photography where it is these days, cheaper cameras often take great photos. That said, if you are looking for a more professional camera and don't think you need a DSLR, I recommend the Canon G9 or the G11. It is basically a professional point and shoot with much of the control of an SLR. I love mine.

  • hidingintrees

    hidingintrees said 7 years ago

    Fantastic tips! In my experience, for taking pictures of paintings, most types of cameras will take decent photos but the lighting is so key. I like to use a flood light, along with natural light/lights out and take images without using the flash. Moving around the flood light in different directions will give different effects.

    Fabulous info! It confirms everything I recently learned in a jewelry photography workshop with Kyle Cassidy.

    A great image can be achieved with any camera. I have seen iphone photos that are remarkable. I believe that the quality of the photo relies on composition, which has nothing to do with the camera --- but the person behind it. Take a second to look at the object you are shooting and view it from different angles. Try a low angle to make it look more heroic, etc.

  • bethtastic

    bethtastic said 7 years ago

    Really really really, the important thing to remember if you're buying a new camera is this: If you're going to spend $150 on a nicer point and shoot with some features, really think hard about upgrading to a DSLR. The extra $100 is SO worth it, and will take a lot of time off your hands. I know $100 is a big difference, but you'll earn it back, trust me! I waffled for so long before buying my Nikon D40, afraid I wouldn't be able to use a digital version of an SLR, but I don't regret it at all. Plus, you can always upgrade from there if you want to--buying new lenses for it, etc. I still have my Olympus FE-170 and it does a nice job, it's great for carrying around, and snapping simple easy shots, but man, I LOVE that I spent the extra $ on the DSLR. It saves you so much time. :)

  • HandmadeByKat

    I have always been in love with Sony Cybershots (the touch screens), currently I have the latest (TX7) and it's pretty amazing. The only thing it doesn't have that my older cybershot did that I miss is changing the color to vivid, natural, normal, sepia, or black and white, however, I do so much editing on my computer, it's not a big deal to just do it there. It has customizable white balance, which is VERY handy when the set ones don;t work as well (why doesn't incandescent adjusting ever look right?). The new cybershots have smile detection too, which helps me when I set my camera on a tripod and don't want to mess with the timer 20 times to take 20 pictures, I just set the smile detection to the level I want and every time I smile, it takes a pic, what's not to love?

    The NYI of Photography teaches its students that it's not the camera, but the person behind the camera that makes the better photos. That's what I learned well over 30 years ago from them. They taught me to take plenty of photos, and, with digital cameras, it is a reality, especially if taking them at different angles and distances and uploading them to your own computer and using a program like PhotoShop for cropping and the like now-a-days.

    A Canon 20D can be had for even cheaper than the 30D and it's just as good. I used it professionally for 3 years before upgrading to a gently used 5D. The 20D can be bought for around $200. The lenses can be expensive for good quality, but if you do a little searching, they are a great investment. Lenses sell used on Ebay for almost 70% of what they are new (good ones). Cameras lose value quickly. Good article!

  • xoazuree

    xoazuree said 6 years ago

    Can I add a few things? Yes, why thank you! If you do have a digital SLR I think getting a 50mm lens is a must. 50mm is what the eye sees and it's capable of taking really cool shots where one part of the item is blurred and the rest is in focus. You can get a good Canon one for about $100 new and probably much cheaper used. I have very limited daylight available so I do a few things to make catch the little light I do get from my window (My window faces the U of our building) by bumping up the ISO (if you have this feature) the higher the number the more light sensitive your image will be but be careful not to go too high because depending on your camera your image might start to get grainy and yucky. I do my product shots on a white table near my window with a white posterboard behind the item and one to the opposite side of the window so it reflects the light and helps eliminate shadows. This set up cost me a whole $2 and helps me get really white nicely naturally light photographs. I didn't use flash for any photo in my shop. I hope that helps! Feel free to convo me if you have any more questions!

    bijubrill said 6 years ago

    Thank you for the perfect tips! This is the most difficult thing to accomplish: to make your jewelry pop on a white background, to find the perfect light and to do closeups.... whenever I want to capture one of my creations, I usually take at least 15 pictures before adjusting them in an editing program (usually Corel Photoshop). It is hard for me as I have a Sony non-professional camera, for family use :-). But I did take a few good ones though...

    Thanks for the article. That was really helpful and it's great to see the comparisons of pics from different cameras. It's also good to know that using a camera with 4 megapixels is Ok as my friend gave me his old one and I was concerned that the images woulldn't be very good quality. I'm going to take some new photos now!

    Several years back I switched over from print film cameras and processing my own film and printing it up myself to went digital photography when my son gave me a Fujifilm S5100, which I love. It's just about the same size as the 35mm SLR's that I used and has some of the same features on it. Add that to Adobe Photoshop for doing darkroom work in, and I'm pretty much set. Fuji cameras aren't that bad. One thing I learned from a NYI of Photography course many years back: It's not the camera, but, the person behind the camera that makes the great pictures...

    I agree Fujiflim Finepix is a great camera! I paid $160.00 for mine at B+H (highly recommend them both for helpfulness and prices). I was using natural light from a side window, and that was working fabulously, then the sun went to the other side of the planet and the rain started. Hmmm, gonna have to wrangle a new lighting source...

    I have a canon rebel xt. This is among the higher end cameras for serious amateurs. But when it comes to taking close ups or macro shots it is almost impossible without a macro lens. That lens comes for $300+. On the other hand my mother-in-law's kodak vintage point and shoot digital camera takes close ups that are simply awesome.

I would definitely reccommend this camera and the good news is: it's only about $200. SCORE! :)

I was excited to upload them to my computer. I was very disappointed to find out it wasn't compatible with Windows 8 and I had to return it. Can anyone recommend a camera that takes good closeups, captures true color and is compatible with Windows 8?
