Compiled for Camera Clubs By Wedding Photographer Michael McGrath
- Sensor megapixel size should be at least 12, and most good cameras will now have this as standard. You should be able to get an up to 16 megapixel sensor camera for not very much more money. The larger the megapixel size the better your image quality.
- The iso range of the camera should be at least from 100 to 800, although 100 to 1600 or higher would be better
- The lens should be changeable and have a smallest aperture of f22. Otherwise you will loose out a lot on picture quality. A shorter zoom lens of say 28-135 or less will prove to be far more useful and give you better shaper images than a more impressive sounding 28-300.The lens that I use for most of my wedding photography is a canon 24-70 f2.8.
